Jose Mourinho admits to problem over Man Utd ace Paul Pogba

Jose Mourinho admits to problem over Man Utd ace Paul Pogba

Brighton were unlucky to see their five-match unbeaten run come to an end in a 1-0 defeat after an assured display at Old Trafford, where they panicked the hosts with fleet-footed counter-attacks and unsafe crosses.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has criticised Henrikh Mkhitaryan's recent form - as Borussia Dortmund indicate they would be interested in re-signing the Armenia forward.

The 28-year-old began the current season with a bang as well, with five assists in the first three games.

"He's an wonderful character, but for those who do n't know him, he seems like a bighead but he's a phenomenon, he's a beast who goes forward and wants to win everything". When he wants the chair, it is there in the office for him. So Michael is in a comfortable situation.

Many fans were happy to see Zlatan make his first appearance since sustaining a knee injury in a Europa League fixture last season.

Mourinho was left frustrated by United's lacklustre display on Saturday which required a 66th-minute Ashley Young shot, and a cruel deflection via defender Lewis Dunk, to claim another three points.

Mourinho admitted his team "did not play well", but took heart from the way they negotiated the tense closing stages.

"[They are] ninth in the table, good team, hard to beat, don't concede many goals, a mixture of physicality, aggression with also quality and creativity", Mourninho said.

"We had a few problems because Pogba and (Nemanja) Matic were isolated in the midfield". I made a decision to play Marcus Rashford and Martial together.

"But if they say that, I would say they were right because sometimes you play with too many attacking players and you lose control of the game".
