Tempo was key to beating Manchester United - Brighton boss Chris Hughton

Three points on Brighton 3-2 Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

For the first time in almost two years, Mourinho's men conceded more than twice with all three Brighton goals arriving before half-time through Glenn Murray, Shane Duffy and a Pascal Gross penalty.

Paul Pogba admitted United failed to match Brighton's desire. There may be some trouble in paradise for the Manchester club, however, as Jose Mourinho made some waves during the offseason.

A surly Mourinho spent the buildup to this clash choosing to criticise rivals Manchester City's fly-on-the-wall documentary released this week, saying "you can't buy class" in reaction to the behind-the-scenes account of last season at the Etihad Stadium.

"Deep down Jose Mourinho will know he wanted men of authority and leadership at the centre of his defence and he doesn't feel he's got them".

It comes after bookies made the former Chelsea boss favourite to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked at 5/1, with Sky Bet placing the likes of Leicester City manager Claude Puel and Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock below the 55-year-old.

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.

Manchester United next meets Spurs at Old Trafford, while Brighton travels to Liverpool. Shane Duffy finishing after the ball fell to him following a corner that was needlessly conceded by a sluggish Eric Bailly.

Especially when Man City have scored eight goals in two matches, Chelsea have made a ideal start and Liverpool looked very good in their opening match of the season against West Ham.

United's defending was dire, with Bailly and Victor Lindelof doing little to convince the manager of their suitability as a long-term partnership, while Andreas Pereira and new recruit Fred were anonymous in midfield.

Mourinho also said Brighton's early goals had robbed United of their "confidence".

Mourinho will now demand an instant reaction when United hosts Tottenham in its next game.

It was a day to forget for United fans, especially after their neighbours City swept aside Huddersfield 6-1.

City has already racked up eight goals in the first two games of its title defense.

"He looked fit. He looked leaner".
