Man Utd boss Mourinho explains Alexis absence for Brighton shock

Pascal Gross celebrates his goal against United

Manchester United are now second in the Premier League standings with 77 points but they are yet to be assured of the runner-up spot following their defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Glenn Murray, Pascal Gross, Jose Izquierdo, and goalie Matty Ryan have the quality to perform well enough for another full season and keep Brighton above the Championship.

With their victory over Jose Mourinho's side being their final home match of the season, the Albion squad came back out of the tunnel after the final whistle for the traditional lap of honour.

But they got the helping hand they needed from the goal-line technology system to seal another campaign in the Premier League on their return to the top flight after 34 years on 57 minutes. Emotion is a bit part of the game.

Manchester United succumbed to a shock 1-0 loss to Brighton last night in one of their worse displays of the season.

"Now you understand why some players play more than others".

'"Why always Lukaku?" Now you have your answer to "Why always Lukaku?"

Mourinho admitted those players who stepped in, such as Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, simply did not take their opportunity despite FA Cup final places to play for. "It is disappointing and we have to dust ourselves down and prepare for the next game".

Mourinho later turned on the media and fans as he said there has been too much focus on why he constantly selects Romelu Lukaku up front.

"I am disappointed because second is important for me".

"For me, it is important, but for some of my players, it doesn't look like it's very important [finishing second]".

"The attitude from the first minute and in the first half - they were stronger than us, [had] more appetite".

Chris Hughton's Brighton will be a Premier League team again next term should they beat United in the Red Devils' first-ever visit to the Amex.

"I wasn't sure", said Gross.

"We want to win and we think that this is the best team", The Mirror quotes Mourinho as saying. But I thought we were outstanding tonight.

"It's a relief because even going into the game I felt, for our season's work so far, that we deserved to stay in this league".
