Brighton captain Bruno hails fans for Man Utd shock

Brighton captain Bruno hails fans for Man Utd shock

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial started in a front three following injuries to top scorer Romelu Lukaku and January signing Alexis Sanchez.

Ander Herrera steps aside for the promotion of Fellaini, while Matteo Darmian, Juan Mata and Marcos Rojo replace Victor Lindelof, Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard as Mourinho shuffles the pack ahead of the FA Cup final in two weeks' time.

"I couldn't persuade my players that second place was very important to us".

"I felt that we've deserved to stay in this league for our season's work", said Brighton boss Chris Hughton.

Brighton XI: Ryan; Bruno (c), Dunk, Duffy, Bong; Knockaert, Stephens, Propper, Izquierdo; Gross; Murray. "They beat us in the attitude". One of the players Mourinho is eyeing this summer has a remarkably paltry release clause that the Red Devils are just waiting to exploit and the to The Sun say United are interested in none other than Napoli's Dries Mertens.

He has previously spoken of the importance of finishing above everyone bar Manchester City, and they remain five points clear of third-placed Liverpool, although Tottenham - one point further back with a game in hand - can also catch them. Why that player doesn't play? "Why always Lukaku?" added Mourinho.

The Belgian, whose future remains uncertain with his contract nearly up, had the ball in the net after only three minutes but he was offside when he turned home Rashford's free kick.

"You should be disappointed more than me because probably I know my players better than you, and probably you don't know them so well to be always with these questions".

United secured a top-four finish by beating Arsenal 2-1 last weekend, and Brighton's more desperate need for the points shone through.

"When individuals don't perform at a good level it's hard for the team to perform at a good level".

The unsafe Jose Izquierdo got to the byline and when his cross was parried by De Gea, the ball crossed the line from Gross's header by the finest of margins before being hooked clear by Marcos Rojo.

Manchester United has now lost away to all three promoted teams this season. They had one target, to get the points and celebrate their Premier League survival.
