Diogo Dalot plays for Manchester United U23s inches closer to senior debut

After that game, Mourinho walked out of his media conference demanding "respect" from journalists, noting his three Premier League titles is more than the other division's bosses combined.

Manchester United suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford to Tottenham and the Spurs fans were reveling under the floodlights earlier this week.

Manchester United's remain fully supportive of manager Jose Mourinho. He said: 'The truth is in the whole. That's easy. I had, last season, great success.

"We won Europa League because that was our level".

Mourinho was in typically defiant form at Friday's pre-match news conference, though, issuing a reminder he has won eight league titles across spells at Real Madrid, Inter and Chelsea. We are the last team in England to win a European competition. I repeat, I have won eight titles.

Jose Mourinho: "I am the manager of one of the greatest clubs in the world but I am also one of the greatest managers in the world".

"But my second position last season is one of my greatest achievements in football".

"When we win we are good, when we don't we are not good - it is simple like that".

Angel Gomes, on his 18th birthday, scored the only goal in the first half after a smart finish from the left side of the penalty area following a neat one-two with Nishan Burkart.

Mourinho also praised defender Luke Shaw - a player he has criticised in the past - who was called up to Gareth Southgate's England squad for September's fixtures against Spain and Switzerland.

Mourinho told the club's official website: "He's [Alexis] not going to the national team for these two friendlies in Japan and South Korea, which is good news for us because after that we play Watford and then immediately play [in the] Champions League [away at Young Boys]". He had that balance and consistency, especially against Brighton in a bad team performance.

"He's committed, he's focused, he works hard".

"A proper player is a player of consistency".

"He's physically and mentally stronger, tactically with a better understanding".

"We are very, very happy with him". There are teams above us but there a lot of points to play for and after the global break the real season starts.
