Manchester United defender Ashley Young has admitted that the team were not at their races as they succumbed to a surprise 1-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on Friday night. United came into the game needing just one point to secure the second position but it was Brighton who eventually prevailed as they cemented their Premier League status with a Pascal Gross winner.
Speaking after the game, Young admitted that the club struggled to find creativity in the attack front and was bitterly disappointed with the loss, he told MUTV: “It wasn’t good enough, especially in the first half as we weren’t at the races. In the first half they had the better chances and we didn’t create as much as we should have. We put the pressure on in the last 20 minutes, but the goal wasn’t meant to be and we are disappointed. I am not sure what was wrong, we just weren’t good enough, that is the honest truth.”
