Manchester United's crisis deepened on Saturday as they slumped to a 3-1 home defeat against Brighton. Red Devils' fans dreamed of a long-overdue title challenge but instead they find themselves trailing arch-rivals, Manchester City by nine points after a third chastening defeat in five matches. United started brightly at Old Trafford, desperate to put their nightmare start to the season behind them but their former forward Danny Welbeck silenced the home fans in the 20th minute. A 53rd-minute goal by Pascal Gross gave United a mountain to climb and substitute Joao Pedro made it 3-0, with Hannibal Mejbri's first United goal little consolation for the shell-shocked hosts.
