Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez misses Brighton clash through injury

Yves Bissouma came off the bench against Watford

Pascal Gross scores from the penalty sport to make it 3-1 Brighton.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho suggested Premier League rival Manchester City was "disrespectful" and lacking "class" in a behind-the-scenes documentary that was released this week.

United did pull one back through Lukaku's close-range header after Luke Shaw's miscued shot bounced nicely into his path, but Brighton restored their two-goal advantage before the break via a Gross penalty.

Manchester United defeated Leicester City in the first match of the Premier League season.

Strengthening the heart of his defence was Mourinho's priority and it showed as Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly endured a torrid afternoon on England's south coast.

"No", Mourinho told press.

Instead, Brighton went in front when veteran striker Murray caught Lindelof ball watching to flick home Solly March's cross with a classy finish.

Toni Kroos criticises 'nonsense' Mesut Ozil claims
The type of criticism was certainly not always at a good level, but then you have to go through as a player, " he said. Arsenal midfielder Ozil , 29, quit worldwide football after Germany exited the World Cup in the group stages.

Paul Pogba's penalty in second-half stoppage time was too little, too late for disjointed United.

Manchester United signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant this summer.

It's back to the drawing board for Manchester United after a woeful 3-2 defeat to Brighton.

That reprieve lasted just 10 minutes, however, before more rash defending by Bailly allowed Brighton to restore their two-goal lead.

A bad pass from De Gea to Fred left the Brazilian in all sorts of trouble, with Dale Stephens nipping in and feeding the ball through for Gross, who was taken out by Eric Bailly.

Gross got to his feet and David de Gea couldn't keep his penalty out.

Romelu Lukaku should be one of them, with Marcus Rashford not really managing to set the field alight against Leicester. Juan Mata should have done enough to fend off Jesse Lingard for the spot on the right.

Brighton captain Dunk was struggling after his challenge with Lukaku, with home boss Chris Hughton prepared to bring on Leon Balogun in his place.
