Twitter reacts as Brighton beat Manchester United 3-2 in the second match-week of the Premier League.
It was a night to forget for Jose Mourinho and his men as Manchester United lost 3-2 to Brighton and Hove Albion. United lacked composure and hardly had fluidity in their attack and defence as Mourinho’s side were all over the place throughout the match.
Brighton scored two quick goals early in the second half. Lukaku pulled one back for United, but an unnecessary foul from Eric Bailly resulted in a penalty goal for Brighton.
Manchester United continued to attack throughout the second half but could hardly produce any decent opportunity to score a goal.
Brighton conceded a penalty in the extra time, which was coolly converted by Paul Pogba. However, it was too late for the Mourinho’s side.
Manchester City continues to remain at the top of the table with 6 points, but more importantly, with a staggering goal difference of 7. Chelsea and Watford complete the top three.
Here are some tweets from the match:
United fans who died in 2013 were the luckiest.

Fergie-era United would be throwing the kitchen sink at Brighton in this situation. Current United are just going down the drain #bbcfootball

Manchester United now need to officially confirm they are a marketing company. The football club finished a long time ago

The Brighton faithful are singing “Just like Brighton, your city is blue” to what’s left of the United fans in the away end.

This game sums up Manchester United perfectly. Bunch of individual players but there is no leader on the pitch. This team lacks character.
