Balogun receives top marks for sterling display against Man United

Chile worldwide Sanchez missed the 3-2 defeat at Brighton on Sunday after picking up a muscle injury in training on Friday, although sources have told ESPN FC the problem is considered minor. "United are fast turning into the same".

The performance has raised questions about the style of play the United manager has instilled in his team, says Tom Clarke in The Times. The Portuguese leaves attacking to the attackers, inviting his players to work out their own system in the final third.

Pogba thumped a speculative effort well over with United struggling to make any headway against the well-organised home side - but after 34 minutes they found a way back, Shaw's bouncing, deflected ball into the area glanced home by Lukaku. But that back four will always cause you problems and concede goals. United looked more disconnected than ever, playing like a collection of individuals that had no idea how to interact with one another - mainly because their manager hadn't taught them what to do. They like to slow it down a little bit sometimes.

Pundit Eamonn Holmes has liked Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho to a vampire, claiming he's sucking the life out of the players. You'll go down as one of the greats, but the way you're acting will tarnish everything you've done'. They've won a Europa League and League Cup, and last term finished second in the table.

Summer signing Fred impressed on his Premier League debut against Leicester.

Credit must go the way of Chris Hughton's side as they actually played some very good football at the Amex stadium but given the fact that United's summer transfer window was a total failure, people have focussed on Mourinho's downfalls instead. "I think there is a lot of hype around the Premier League".

The fall-out from Manchester City's "All Or Nothing" documentary continues with Graeme Souness sharing his thoughts on Jose Mourinho's comments about the Premier League champions lacking "class".

This was as good as it got for United all match.

The one thing that goes in Mourinho's favour is the dearth of top-quality candidates now available to replace him. "How much more money should they squander?"

With a clash against Tottenham Hotspur on the horizon at Old Trafford next Monday, the bookmakers are taking few chances regarding the potential departure of a manager who is cutting a frustrated figure on the sidelines and when undertaking his media duties.
