Pathetic Manchester United prove Jose Mourinho warning true in Brighton embarrassment

We think Manchester United will start like this

We think Manchester United will start like this

But if they send me one of the t-shirts they had in the tunnel [for the derby game in April when City could have clinched the title but lost 3-2] when we played there, the shirts that were saying "We did it on derby day".

Jose Mourinho has said he will no longer be criticising individual Manchester United players in public, a major reversal of past patterns, following the abject performance in a 3-2 defeat at Brighton on Sunday. 'I don't want to say a big opportunity.

"I will be very happy to analyse my players' performances when they were very good".

'We made too many mistakes and we were punished by them.

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


United improved marginally after the break but never really looked like threatening a fightback, though Paul Pogba netted an injury-time penalty after Duffy brought down Marouane Fellaini. "I put myself first, my attitude wasn't right enough".

"We were playing at home last week and that's different".

'He can find that stability that makes the great players, we try, we try to help him and he's working well'.

Victor Lindelof surpassed Bailly's tackle record, as he failed to make any successful tackles during the game, and to add insult to injury failed to make any blocks at all during the 90 minutes, with United's central defence partnership failing to make any interceptions.

Mourinho has also played down reports of a rift with World Cup-winner Pogba, while he aimed a dig at Manchester City over their "All or Nothing" documentary.


Speaking about the captaincy situation, Mourinho said: "We thought, I think it was before the game against Basel".

"I don't agree with José in terms of being disrespectful to them". 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].

"This was not our intention, [it was] just filming what happened last season".

"Liverpool are trying to win the title with their awesome investment". Another guy is going to say 'we like it, ' another guy will say no.
