Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is clearly unhappy with two of his fringe players, England international Marcus Rashford and French forward Anthony Martial after the pair were toothless and gutless against a hungry Brighton and Hove Albion team.

Brighton won the game 1-0 which guaranteed their safety in the Premier League.

Mourinho was without highest goalscorer Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez and therefore opted for the two youngsters.

In his post-match briefing, Mourinho did not have nice words for them; “For 10 months I get asked ‘why always Lukaku? Why always Lukaku? Why always this player?'”

“‘That guy doesn’t have a chance to start, the other one is on the bench’. You know why now.”

United are still on course to finish second on the table despite the loss, but Mourinho was very unhappy with the performance of the two stars.

They have played in a lot of Manchester United games but they mainly came from the bench in those games, meanwhile, Lukaku has 16 goals from 30 games this season.

“Football was fair to the Brighton boys,” he said as Albion secured their Premier League safety. “They had a big target, they showed the point would be a big thing for them and gave everything for that.

“I couldn’t persuade my players that second place was very important to us. I know we can do it, we only have two matches to get the four points we need. They beat us in the attitude.”
