"They had more hunger than us and I think they showed that, but our attitude wasn't right".

As the sun tried to come out on an otherwise dank, drizzly day, United were stunned and Mourinho sent three of his substitutes out to warm up. "If we put in a similar performance, then I'll be happy".

"So don't ask me to do what you criticised me so much for".

Brighton will be hoping to get their 2018/2019 season up and running when they welcome Man United to the Amex stadium on Sunday evening.

"Don't expect me to speak with you about it because you and your colleagues they were really critical with me in previous seasons (when) I was probably too honest, too open in my analysing".

Brighton were 3-1 ahead at half-time and frustrated United until Pogba converted a penalty in stoppage time, and the France worldwide suggested he had not been mentally prepared.

"Manchester United did enough to beat Leicester in their opener, but they will improve as their star players get closer to full fitness. We'll keep trying and keep pushing and obviously it's a lesson for us".

Brighton fought hard for survival in their first campaign following promotion last term, securing their top-flight status with a win against United in their final home match.
