Man United vs Brighton in the FA Cup The late match in England on Saturday night was at Old Trafford.

United, looking to make amends after their feeble Champions League defeat by Sevilla, struggled to impose themselves against Brighton before Lukaku broke the deadlock by heading home Matic's curling, left-foot cross at the far post after 37 minutes.

Other United players, however, drew the ire of Mourinho, who accused unnamed members of his team of lacking the stomach for the fight and believes those who are good enough to play for Manchester United will cope with his harsh criticism. "I want more personality in the team", he said. Because one thing is to play and it's another thing to be on the pitch it's hard to have a good performance, so no, I'm not happy with the performance at all. I think it is a relation with personality, trust and class.

"My calculation is that without pressure they don't perform well - what can I lose?" When questioned whether any of his players were returning for the clash, the 55-year-old said: "No, not yet". Every player can play bad, but not to feel comfortable to play - "please Mister, take me from the pitch" - I felt that.

"For example, Scott played the worst match since he played with me in the first team". "We were always in the game, certainly as regards shots and shots on target, I thought we were always a threat but we needed to work their keeper a little bit more, maybe that little bit more quality in the final third", he said.

"Instead of criticising, I was positive with him".

Sergio Romero comes in between the sticks while Luke Shaw gets a chance to impress at left-back as he joins Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Antonio Valencia in defence.

"Because you played very bad, you played very bad, but you did the basic things one player has to do".

"I didn't change both of them because then I would have only one more substitution. I was not happy with his performance".
