Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba admits that his attitude was not right during his side's 3-2 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has admitted that his attitude "wasn't right enough" during his side's 3-2 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion this afternoon.

United slumped to their first defeat of the new season at the Amex Stadium, with Pogba's late penalty proving to be only a consolation goal for the visitors.

The World Cup winner has acknowledged that an element of complacency was allowed to sink in for his side, and was particularly critical of his own performance after a week which has seen his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho come under the microscope once again.

"We lost and the attitude that we had today was that we deserved to win," Pogba told Sky Sports News.

"I put myself first. My attitude wasn't right enough. We'll keep trying and keep pushing and obviously it's a lesson for us. The attitude that we had was not like we wanted to beat them. They had more anger than us and that showed on the pitch.

"We made mistakes we shouldn't make. The attitude has to be right and we missed that today."

Today's match saw United ship three first-half goals for only the 10th time in the Premier League era.
