Man Utd boss Mourinho explains Alexis absence for Brighton shock

  • Chris Hughton says his Brighton side have had a 'normal' season in the Premier League for a promoted club

Jose Mourinho's team should still finish second despite a dire 1-0 defeat to Brighton at the Amex Stadium.

"Look at the other side and the blue half of Manchester".

Instead, City can now break United's record winning margin of 18 points from the 1999/2000 season should they win their remaining three games. You can file this under bad, along with deserved defeats at Huddersfield and Newcastle.

United barely troubled Brighton's goalkeeper in the first-half due to limited opportunities. But judging by the first 45 minutes, you wouldn't have known it.

They rode their luck just three minutes into the match, when Marouane Fellaini steered Marcus Rashford's free kick into the net, but the linesman had his flag raised from offside. Mourinho claimed after the match that he was hopeful the 30-year-old would be signing a new contract with the club before his current deal expires next month. Poor, lazy passes were easily intercepted by Brighton and the whole team kept coming short for the ball and took far too many touches, allowing Brighton to get back and defend with ease.

Asked if Mr Trump knew about the arrangement, Mr Giuliani said: "He didn't know about the specifics of it, as far as I know". The sexual encounter allegedly took place in 2006, four months after Trump's wife Melania gave birth to their son Barron.

Over the line. That was Brighton & Hove Albion's objective, and that was how they achieved it, with a header from Pascal Gross that crossed the whitewash of David De Gea's goalline by a distance of just 28.3mm. Marcos Rojo, making his first start since February 3, did his best to hook it away but it was over the line - just.

Despite being Arsenal last weekend, the Reds were awful at the Amex Arena.

As a Plan B against Arsenal, the Belgian was effective. "I'm expecting more from him".

A delighted Hughton hailed the efforts of his players at the final whistle.

The newly-promoted side started on a good note by asking the right questions at United's defense.

Jose Mourinho made six changes to a United side that was missing Romelu Lukaku, as expected, but the absence of Alexis Sanchez, also through injury, set alarm bells ringing 15 days before their clash with Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

Mourinho has called out his players publicly. Pogba and Martial looked to connect on a couple of occasions, but again, they could not produce anything. The lack of starts for Rashford and Martial has been a source of criticism all year long.

And Mourinho warned his players that the 0-0 scoreline could soon swing in Brighton's favour if they didn't improve their performance.

The FA Cup focused Red Devils had Eric Bailly and Jesse Lingard on the bench for the game.
