Jose Mourinho admits Brighton wanted it more than Manchester United

Brighton secure Premier League safety as Gross goal downs United

Manchester United are now second in the Premier League standings with 77 points but they are yet to be assured of the runner-up spot following their defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion.

The German forward got on the end of a sharp Jose Izquierdo cross from the left and the ball crossed the line before Marcus Rojo's desperate attempt to keep it out.

- Brighton could not hide their relief at the final whistle after securing their Premier League status for next season. That goal appeared to have jolted United and they increased the tempo of the game as they attacked Brighton, but nothing seems to be coming out of it as they even struggled to create meaningful chances that would have resulted in a goal.

"Any player who wonders why they're not playing in the FA Cup final, just show them that video".

"You should be disappointed more than me because probably I know my players better than you, and probably you don't know them so well to be always with these questions".

Mourinho said: "For many months you are always asking me why this player doesn't play, why that player doesn't play, why this player is on the bench, why always Lukaku?"

It was no more than Brighton deserved after outplaying their more illustrious rivals throughout the contest and they sent a passionate home crowd into raptures after Gross headed home a 57th-minute victor.

Mourinho has been regularly quizzed this season about why Martial and Rashford were not starting more games. "The four points? For some of my players it doesn't look like it's very important".

"I wouldn't say disappointed because I know [the players]", Mourinho added. Their apathy was visible on the pitch Friday, and Brighton―who secured a spot in next year's Premier League with the win―took full advantage.

Hughton said: "I'm particularly pleased with the performance". I didn't succeed in persuading my players that four points to finish second is important - for me it is, but maybe not for my players. But I thought for some of them, the possibility to start, the possibility to give reasons to all the critics towards my choices - why always Lukaku, why always Lukaku, why always Lukaku, why always this and this - well you have the answer. "So relief that we've done it now, but I'm also really proud of a group of players".
