Manchester United captain Paul Pogba has admitted his attitude in the 3-2 defeat to Brighton on Sunday was wrong.

Nigeria’s Leon Balogun saw 70 minutes of action in the encounter following the injury of Lewis Dunk who was pulled off after just 20 minutes.

Pogba, who scored one of United’s goals, admitted that his side deserved the defeat.

"We lost, we did not deserve to win," Pogba told Sky Sports after the match. "The attitude we had was not like we wanted to beat them, they had more hunger than us.

"I put myself first, my attitude wasn't right enough, we keep trying and pushing, and it is going to be a big lesson for us."

"I think we made the mistake we shouldn't make. You go 1-0 down, it's OK, then 2-0, then 2-1 and you have hope we can score again, but we concede a goal. It's a hit for us. In the first half it was a hit. It was very disappointing, we tried to push.

"You cannot always approach the game the same way as the last one. You always try to play better than the last game, but we know, and I know we can always play very good, but the attitude has to be good and we missed that today."
