Jose Mourinho was furious following Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion in Friday night's English Premier League fixture.

Pascal Gross' 57th minute header secured Brighton's Premier League survival.

Paul Pogba, who played for all 90 minutes, put in a below-par performance, among several others.

Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford started at the Amex Stadium, with Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez not involved, but both struggled to influence the game.

Mourinho was angered by the performance of the players, and ultimately, the outcome of the match.

"Not good enough, because the players that replaced others did not perform at a good level, and when individuals don't perform at a good level it's difficult for the team to perform at a good level." He told Sky Sports.

"So maybe now you understand why some players play more than others, and you don't ask all the time why A, B and C don't play more."

The Portuguese manager claimed he had informed his players how Brighton would play, and said their opponents had more appetite and strength than his side.
