Mourinho Fumes At Rashford And Martial

Manchester United created history against Brighton and Hove Albion but the kind of history that no one wants.

Mourinho tore into his players after the match and Neville believes the performance on Friday night proved that several members of the squad have stopped playing for their manager.

Mourinho does seem hopeful however that he will have the pair back in first team contention for the FA Cup final versus Chelsea May 19 at Wembley Stadium.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton was delighted after seeing the Seagulls, who beat United 1-0 in their last top-flight meeting at this venue in 1982, avoid relegation. It's not good enough.

"Probably we are not as good individually as people think we are, and I keep saying, if you manage to finish second, it is great, more than great if you manage to finish second".

"What happened in the last 15-20 minutes is normal, but overall attitude from the first minute they were obviously stronger than us", he continued.

"Mourinho said it was important to him that four points were achieved to finish second and he couldn't convey that to his players".

And Mourinho warned his players that the 0-0 scoreline could soon swing in Brighton's favour if they didn't improve their performance. "So maybe now you understand why some players play more than others". Why always Lukaku? Why always Lukaku?'

Meanwhile United blew a chance to move one step closer to sealing second place and automatic qualification for next season's Champions League with the defeat. "Even before Christmas, I had doubts about whether they would be able to do it and they deserve to celebrate tonight". - Pascal Gross has been directly involved in 45 per cent of Brighton's 33 Premier League goals this season (15 - 7 goals, 8 assists). Now you have the answer why always Lukaku.

The youngster has struggled for game time following the January arrival of Alexis Sanchez, with Jose Mourinho often preferring the Chilean over Rashford and Anthony Martial.

"If you could pick a game to do it, it would be Man United at Amex".
