Former Manchester United man, Gary Neville, has said that he was not surprised to see the club suffer a 3-1 defeat to Brighton at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Manchester United were beaten by a rampant Brighton side who now boast four straight league wins over the Red Devils.

Brighton’s goals came from the boots of Danny Welbeck, Pascal Gross and Joao Pedro.

Hannibal Mejbri grabbed a consolation for the home side in the 73rd minute.

Neville praised the high-flying Seagulls but maintained that it’s concerning that the result wasn’t a shock, tweeting, “I’ve just got back from Old Trafford, and you always have to be optimistic pre-match, but the most concerning thing is what we ended up watching wasn’t a surprise. 

“This wasn’t a lack of effort or a group of players not interested.

“This was a team well-beaten by opponents that were well drilled and knew what they were doing. Simple as that…”
