Pogba scored his second penalty of the season deep into stoppage time at the Amex, but by then it was too little, too late for the visitors as Mourinho's pre-season predictions of defensive problems were realised on a hard afternoon for centre-backs Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.

A few hours after Manchester City strolled to a 6-1 win over Huddersfield, United showed the gulf that now exists to its fierce rival by succumbing meekly to its first loss of the season on Sunday (NZT).

The 29-year-old was missing for Sunday's game due to injury and could well be out for United's clash with Spurs next Monday too. I know how [Jürgen] Klopp likes to play. "We made incredible mistakes in some crucial moments, mistakes that killed us. Mistakes that killed us", Mourinho said.

"Especially that third goal - we expected to come [in at half-time] at 2-1 with positivity - then the third goal killed us off in the second half".

Paul Pogba pulls one back from the penalty spot, but it's too late! It's not good for me. "There are basic mistakes that makes it nearly an impossible mission to win the match".

United lacked leadership across the pitch with captain Paul Pogba a shadow of the player who had impressed the previous week in the win over Leicester City.

"What we've got to do is make sure it's not a home game against Manchester United which makes us do it. For me that´s the story of the game", said Mourinho.

"But the Man United midfield players could never do it".

"United need serious football people to guide what they are doing". "The press and pundits criticise when I go in that direction".

France midfielder Pogba took blame for his lethargic display, admitting he had been well below his best.

"I was disappointed for Lewis. We think he fell out with the Chelsea players and that ultimately cost him his job", Souness told Sky Sports.

"I will always try".

"It's very hard to single out players but I thought he was another one who was really good today". "It didn't happen today". "We kept trying and pushing and it will be a big lesson for us".

It was a dismal effort from United and Balogun said the game would probably be played at a quicker pace when Brighton visit Anfield on Saturday.
