Jose Mourinho's Manchester United Defeat To Brighton 3-2

Brighton stunned a poor Manchester United team at the Amex Stadium on Sunday.

Glenn Murray's crisp finish sparked a 19-minute goal blitz as Brighton stunned a defensively shoddy Manchester United.

Target-man Murray swept home his first goal of the season to toast his 200th Brighton appearance, before Shane Duffy and Pascal Gross left United reeling.

Romelu Lukaku found the net amid Brighton's first-half raids, but when Eric Bailly upended Gross to gift the hosts a penalty the Red Devils were effectively beaten by half-time.

Captain Paul Pogba struck a stoppage-time penalty for United but Brighton had done enough to earn a deserved victory.

United boss Jose Mourinho will doubtless be furious with his side's early defensive disarray - then later their inability to launch a fightback.
