Jose Mourinho slams Man City after 'All or Nothing' documentary

"A goalkeeper wins points and wins titles, so he is as important as another player".

Manchester United suffered at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion this afternoon and well, it looks like manager Jose Mourinho is the main source of frustration after Chris Hughton's side knocked three past the Reds.

"We are going to try, but it's a very difficult job in front of us because second was really hard and this season is going to be really hard for everyone to finish top four", he told Sky Sports when asked about the Red Devils' prospects of finishing first. Then from the re-start, Eric Bailly gave away a needless corner and some penalty box pinball ended with Shane Duffy scoring a second after expertly controlling Anthony Knockaert's miscued shot.

United pulled one goal back through a Paul Pogba penalty, but it was too late as Brighton ran out 3-2 winners.

And ahead of today's trip down to Brighton (4pm), Mourinho toldSky Sports: "We were speaking about one extra body, it's not like we were unhappy because we wanted six or seven more players and they didn't come".

Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas' dance at engagement bash
Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner and Chopra's sister-in-law congratulated the Baywatch star and welcomed her into the family. Questioning the same, the source said who does that and why would one invite one half of a couple and leave out the other one.

They would be split into six groups of three teams, with the group winners and two runners-up advancing to knock-out rounds. The new format will involve a qualifying round in February, in which 24 teams will take part in home and away matches.

Subtropical storm Ernesto becomes better organized over the Atlantic
The thunderstorms associated with subtropical systems and the strongest winds are found farther away from the center of storm. Subtropical Storm Ernesto grew out of what started earlier Wednesday as Subtropical Depression Five.

He picked Lindelof and Bailly against Brighton and after 45 minutes they had helped cost United three goals. "He can not have any bad feelings towards us because we opened the door for him, in case his desire was to go, but it looks like it's not going to end in a transfer and, for me, it is good news".

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

Mourinho's third seasons in charge during his second spell at Chelsea and at Real Madrid never recovered from a poor start. Matic underwent surgery for an injury he picked up at the World Cup whereas Valencia limped off in United's match against San Jose Earthquakes with a calf strain. Brighton finished 15th previous year after being promoted, but the real test is this season.

After Manchester United romped home against Leicester, they will next face Brighton this Sunday.

If they can do that more often than not this season, they should win enough home games to stay in the league for a third successive campaign. Or was last season a fluke?
