'we Made Incredible Mistakes' Mourinho

Jose Mourinho admitted Manchester United had paid the price for "incredible mistakes" in their dismal 3-2 defeat at Brighton on Sunday.

He also gave full credit to the Seagulls for capitalising on United's problems, as Glenn Murray and Shane Duffy scored two minutes apart midway through the first half, and Pascal Gross responded to Romelu Lukaku getting a goal back by converting a penalty before the break.

United rarely looked like mounting a fightback and Paul Pogba's penalty with virtually the last kick of the game came way too late.

At Burnley, Watford made it two wins out of two and ended their run of poor away form in impressive fashion as early second half strikes from captain Troy Deeney and Will Hughes gave them a 3-1 win at Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday.

Mourinho failed to get a new central defender he craved, with his employers not prepared to spend any more money on that position.

Mourinho was unhappy with the Amazon Prime documentary revealing comments from inside the City dressing room during their title-winning season, which he felt were derogatory towards himself and United.

The Red Devils must get better, though, and quickly, or the title will start to look beyond their reach even before the race has truly begun. "You go to half-time in a situation where the players are really, really, really down". In the second half our goal was too late and gave us not even a chance of the next ball, which is quite odd, because the game against Leicester ended with a corner against us.

It came after a summer of discontent for Mourinho, with the Portuguese boss determined to sign a centre-back. After this performance, he could face a battle to stay in his manager's plans.

They return to action this afternoon with a trip to Brighton.

Mourinho makes three changes to the starting XI that beat Leicester in the opening game of the Premier League season.

United have conceded four goals in their opening two games of the season - it took them nine to let in that many last season.

Mourinho was left frustrated by a lack of transfer activity before the Premier League deadline after only Fred and Diogo Dalot arrived and his concerns were laid bare as United crashed to a 3-2 defeat. Only two players have netted more goals exclusively at home in the competition's history - Georginio Wijnaldum (18) and Clive Wilson (9).

By then, a battling Brighton side had done enough to earn a second straight home victory over Jose Mourinho's side. Indeed, they have not won away from home in the top flight since last November.

"Tottenham next Monday is now one of the biggest games of his United career".
