Paul Pogba has hit out at Manchester United’s attitude problem – and says he can foot some of the blame.
Pogba, who retained the captain’s armband, was one of a number of players who failed to impress in the defeat to Brighton.
Glenn Murray and Shane Duffy struck within two minutes of each other for the home side before Romelu Lukaku reduced the deficit.
But a Pascal Gross penalty on the brink of half-time restored the two goal advantage.
Pogba netted his second penalty in as many matches in stoppage time at the end of the game, but the damage was already done with a disjointed United performance.
And the disappointed Frenchman admitted that United have to buck their ideas up if they are going to be a success this season.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Pogba said: "The attitude is not how we want it to be. I think it showed on the pitch, with myself first, the attitude was not good enough. We keep trying.
"I think the mistake we shouldn’t make, and lose 1-0, come back to 2-1, we had the hope, but then we conceded the goal.
"They had more hunger than us. I put myself first, that my attitude wasn’t right enough.
"We made mistakes we shouldn’t make. We tried to push and push, we kept trying, but it was a bit too late.
"We were playing at home last week and that’s different. Different teams, different tactics. I know you cannot always play very very good.
"The attitude always has to be very good and we missed that."
United return to Old Trafford next week to take on top four rivals Tottenham.
