The famous fighting spirit that has become synonymous with Manchester United over the years was nowhere to be seen during their 3-2 loss to Brighton at East Sussex. Such was their meek surrender that it even prompted their captain Paul Pogba to state they did not play with the right attitude.

Thousands of supporters had travelled to cheer for Jose Mourinho’s men but instead had to sit through a miserable 90 minutes, while the home fans rubbed more salt into their wounds with chants like “We want four” and “Can we play you every week?”

It was a bitter pill to swallow and such a woeful performance must have surely tested the patience of even the most loyal Red Devils fan, who are not used to watching their team go down without a scrap.

But United fans might still have something to cheer after reading the praise showered on them by The Times writer Henry Winter, who lauded them for their attitude even while witnessing the shambolic display by their team.
