On Sunday evening, Manchester United fell to a shock 3-2 defeat at the hands of an inspired Brighton and Hove Albion side.
The Red Devils, despite the close scoreline, were utterly outplayed by the home side at the Amex Stadium, and the Seagulls’ fully deserved their famous victory.
A Paul Pogba penalty in the fifth minute of stoppage time proved too little too late as Jose Mourinho’s men slumped to a surprise loss.
None on the United side were able to impress as Chris Hughton’s well-drilled outfit dominated the play for long periods of the match. Questions must now be asked of Mourinho’s ability to coax a title challenge out of this expensively assembled squad.
Many United fans are certainly of the opinion that the Portguese’s time in the Old Trafford dugout must now be brought to a close. #MourinhoOut gained traction on Twitter after the final whistle.
Twitter was in fact a hotbed for United fan unrest after the match, with plenty of criticism for Mourinho being aired…
Mourinho is an an analogue manager in a digital age, he has not adapted to the modern game he is CLUELESS absolutely CLUELESS #MourinhoOUT

That was disgraceful. Jose has to get SACKED. I’m sorry, his time is DONE from the last season. Young is the worst RB/LB in the entire of the league. #MourinhoOut

With his public criticism of the players the team has decided not to stand with him. I don’t care for Mourinho either and I do feel like he’s overstayed his welcome.

Manchester United isn’t the club it used to be. From the coach to the players. The players aren’t worth the badge and Mourinho is certainly past glory.. #manutd
