Manchester United fans tear into defender after Brighton loss: "Woeful", "Awful"

United have now lost away to all three promoted teams this season after Pascal Gross' goal guaranteed Brighton's survival.

Even if Brighton cannot upset the form book to beat United it would take a freak sequence of results to see them dragged into the relegation pciture, and a team who have troubled United a couple of times already this season at Old Trafford will almost certainly be back for more next term. Maybe now you will not ask me why A, B and C do not play so much.

"You have the answer - why always Lukaku, why always this, you have the answer".

"But I don't think they had a clear-cut chance and we were good value for the win". I thought for some of them that the possibility to start a game would be good. Why always Lukaku? Why always Lukaku?

I did not succeed in persuading my players that getting four more points is important.

We can decipher couple of things from all of this. When the Belgian had a tough spell midway through the season, many were saying Mourinho should give him a rest and change things around.

The season in England and across Europe has been filled with so much drama and with two more games to end the 2017/18 Premier League season there was another "shocking" result on Friday night. "Well, now they know why always Lukaku and why always this player and why always that player". He made a couple of big mistakes, and Martial himself was also underwhelming.

Brighton nearly doubled their lead when Izquierdo aimed just wide after United failed to clear a corner, before Juan Mata whipped a free-kick over the crossbar to prompt Mourinho into sending for substitutes Luke Shaw and Jesse Lingard. United regained momentum after conceding the goal but failed to get the equalizer even with the introduction of Luke Shaw and Lingard to help the attack.

'It's hard work, it really is, to keep doing what they do, ' he said.

The Red Devils are also still hoping to end the campaign with a trophy, and they are set to take on Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley at the end of the month.
