[Teams] Man Utd vs Brighton: Confirmed Line-Ups From Old Trafford

Share

Jose Mourinho has made five changes to the Manchester United side dumped out of the Champions League by Sevilla on Wednesday for their FA Cup quarter-final tie against Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford.

Paul Pogba returned from a knock to feature in the Champions League last-16 second leg defeat to Sevilla, as did forward Anthony Martial.

While Spurs had been unplayable during their 3-0 win at Swansea City earlier on Saturday, United were functional at best but Mourinho seems to have relieved some of the pressure of his back, for the moment at least, as the Red Devils remain on course to lift one trophy this season. "I didn't have a reaction from all of them, I had a reaction from some of them".

"But he was a Manchester United player, and for me a Manchester United player is a player that when he plays bad, he gives to the team".

Speaking after the Brighton victory, he said: "I didn't like the game, I think we deserved to win because the game was more or less in control for the majority of the time. And because some of them were mentally strong enough and with the football quality to play, was the reason why we won".

"The biggest frustration is not a bad result because this can happen, it's when I work on the [training] pitch and don't see the situations on the pitch".

The announcement came after the British ambassador to Russia , Laurie Bristow, was summoned to the foreign ministry in Moscow . Johnson's comments followed Prime Minister Theresa May's decision Wednesday to expel 23 Russian diplomats from Britain.

The Red Devils went into the break leading by the lone goal.

Mourinho told his players to "grow up" during an extraordinary pre-match news conference but the hosts produced another tepid display on Saturday, edging out the determined Seagulls to progress.

"When you play for Manchester United, the supporters always expect you to win trophies and I hope we're ready to win the FA Cup which is an important trophy in England".

"Matic was an island of personality, surrounded by not water but lack of class and desire".

"And instead of being critical with him, I was positive with him because 'You played very bad but you did the basic things that one player has to do'".
