Jose Mourinho feels his players are low on confidence after Brighton defeat

Manchester United fans were absolutely furious with Eric Bailly's performance vs Brighton following the loss on Sunday evening.

The defeat came just hours after Premier League champions Manchester City thrashed Huddersfield Town 6-1, and leaves Jose Mourinho's side with ground to make up on their neighbours just two games into the new season.

The eight-part series, All or Nothing was released by streaming service Amazon last week amid much fanfare.

"Last season was a tough moment for all his family".

If Manchester United want to challenge for the title or even challenge for the top 4, they may have to improve quickly or else they may be left behind.

"At the end of November, December you will have an idea if we can compete", he said. "You don't need to be disrespectful". "You can be a rich club and buy all the best players in the world but you cannot buy class". That is my first reaction. Please do not ask me to go in this direction.

"I am someone very honest and we always play for the shirt and play for them and this is not the result that we wanted and not the result that they wanted".

Manchester United were beaten 3-2 by Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

The visitors never settled and Anthony Knockaert took advantage of poor communication in United defence after 22 minutes to shoot wide.

The style of Mourinho's side was portrayed as negative in an episode that featured the Manchester derby on December 10 of past year, narrator Ben Kingsley billing it as "possession versus defence; attacking football versus park-the-bus".

There are also scenes of City supporters chanting "Park the bus" during the derby, as well as Mourinho's post-match press briefing at Old Trafford in which he claims, unconvincingly, that his team had not just been outplayed by Guardiola's.

Mourinho made headlines last season and over the summer by speaking out about what he saw as shortcomings from his players, notably Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.

Mourinho warned of a "difficult" season when he wasn't backed in the transfer market before the deadline for Premier League clubs closed before the opening weekend of the season. "I needed to be there".

"It's a special day for him, for us, for David".

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

"You score the first goal and you think let's go to the second half at 2-1, on a high, and then suddenly you make that mistake and concede that goal".

"They won the Community shield and at the Emirates without De Bruyne".

And Pogba admits they can not allow a repeat of their display and attitude, with Tottenham due to visit Old Trafford a week on Monday.
