Jose Mourinho harshly criticises Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial following Brighton loss

Chris Hughton says his Brighton side have had a 'normal' season in the Premier League for a promoted club

Brighton produced one of their best displays this season to defeat Manchester United at the Amex Stadium.

David de Gea was the only United player selected in the PFA's Premier League's team of the year and the Spaniard showed why he has again been his side's outstanding performer this season with a stunning finger tip save to turn a dipping volley from Glenn Murray behind.

Lukaku was ruled out of the Brighton contest prior to the squad's traveling to the match, but Sanchez was a last minute scratch, which surprised some.

"I think we learned probably after the first few games, that the performances were good enough that we could compete, and I think that encourages the team and [gives them] a lot of confidence". "Overall, and especially during the first half, they were obviously stronger than us, with more appetite". I know we can do it, we only have two matches to get the four points we need.

"But if we'd lost today and the next two, it would have been a real feeling of injustice had we gone down". I know them. I thought that the possibility to start the game and give reason would give them something. Pascal Gross scored the only in Brighton's maiden Premier League triumph over United.

They'll also finish a distant second in the Premier League behind rivals Manchester City but can still grab a major trophy in the FA Cup on May 19. But before the hour mark, the host's effort was rewarded when they pushed forward and the cross of Izquidero met the head of Pascal Gross who powered in home to give them the lead. "Maybe now you will not ask me why A, B and C do not play so much", declared Mourinho.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly aiming to bolster the club's midfield during the summer amid Michael Carrick's retirement and Marouane Fellaini's uncertain future at Old Trafford.

"You have the answer - why always Lukaku, why always this, you have the answer".

United stayed second on 77 points ahead of Thursday's trip to West Ham followed by a home game against Watford.
