Paul Scholes rips into Paul Pogba's lack of leadership after Brighton defeat

While Mourinho's unhappiness with his depiction in the documentary may hold some merit, his choice of using the word "class" has caused a strong reaction with many quick to point out the numerous examples of disrespect he has shown over the years. It's all about fitness and sharpness early in the season to be able to go both ways (attack and defend) but it was definitely better than last week.

City has already racked up eight goals in the first two games of its title defense. Everyone has off days. Sometimes you make mistakes and are punished, sometimes the opponent doesn't take advantage of the gifts, and sometimes they do and this time was nearly three on three so they were critical in the gifts that we gave them and because of that I think they deserve [to win]. It's a record that could stand for quite some time, should MLS stick with the current 34-game regular-season schedule. He had another really poor game. We didn't do it today and we are very disappointed because we are the guys that should have the good and right attitude.

"It's lump it forward, play off the bits and see where we go from that". Martial, in the first half, got one ball on the left hand side in the first half and he absolutely flew past the right back.

Brighton face another sizeable challenge in the form of Liverpool at Anfield next Saturday, where they lost 4-0 on the final day of last season.

United lacked leadership across the pitch with captain Paul Pogba a shadow of the player who had impressed the previous week in the win over Leicester City.

"It doesn't get any easier and away from home is different and a lot harder but this will give us a lift". Their form on their own patch will be key again is they are going to survive again and Chris Hughton could not have asked for a better start. "When you lose your confidence then it's the normal tendency to lose that confidence and game plan".

"I will be very, very happy to analyse my players' performances when the performances are very good".

As the game paused, United fans serenaded their manager with hearty refrains of "Jose Mourinho!", showing their solidarity for a man under scrutiny, but a few minutes later their chants were well and truly silenced by a double blow.

Pogba converted from the spot for the second successive game but it came all too late to significantly impact the proceedings.

"In (Leon) Balogun, you have someone you know won't be phased". He's a very tough boy and is rarely injured.
