Is it time up for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United?

Juan Mata may drop out of the line-up this weekend

Jose Mourinho has apparently fallen with the likes of Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial so far and it won't be a surprise if he loses the dressing room anytime soon.

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.

Knockaert was brought down 25 yards out, getting up to curl the free kick over the bar, but three minutes from the break Brighton had a penalty when Eric Bailly fouled Gross as he broke through - and the Brighton man blasted the kick in off De Gea.

Goal! Shane Duffy smashes the ball into the bottom corner from close range!

The story could have been very different for the visitors had Lukaku not wasted a huge chance to open the scoring when he pulled his shot wide of the near post 10 minutes in. That task is about as daunting as it gets as Manchester United is an incredible team.

However the Albion boss says he will not focus on Pogba when he plots his tactics for a game in which his side will look to bounce back from an opening 2-0 defeat at Watford. Regardless of the drama surrounding Manchester United, they will be the favorites against Brighton.

It wasn't a surprise when Mata didn't return for the second half.

The rivalry between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola has been propelled back into the spotlight following the release of Manchester City's "All Or Nothing" documentary.

Zidane has become the bookies favourite to be the next Manchester United manager.

It's clear why Mourinho was desperate for a new centre-back in the transfer window.

But the damage had already been done as Brighton sat comfortably on their lead until virtually the last kick of the match. However, a pre-season calf injury ruled the 33-year-old out for United's season opener against Liecester and Pogba was handed the captain's armband for that game.

Summer signing Fred impressed on his Premier League debut against Leicester. The Brazilian midfielder was at his marauding best at times and will be looking to continue his solid start for the Red Devils. Not a single Man United player covered himself in glory.
