BRIGHTON PROVIDED MANCHESTER UNITED WITH "PROBABLY THE HARDEST MATCH WE'VE HAD THIS SEASON&

Jose Mourinho said Brighton gave Manchester United players with "probably the hardest match we've had this season" after a narrow win for his side at Old Trafford.

An unfortunate Lewis Dunk own goal was enough to earn United an 11th straight home win and cut Manchester City's lead at the top to five points ahead of their game at Huddersfield on Sunday.

Brighton had been the better team up until Ashley Young's attempt from the edge of the area hit Dunk and looped over keeper Mat Ryan into the net, reports BBC.

Earlier, Anthony Knockaert and Pascal Gross both went close after getting behind the United defence.

'Brighton deserve more than the result they got'

"Honestly, I think Brighton were very good," said Mourinho.

"I want to be honest and give them what they deserve, for me probably they deserve more than the result they got.

"They played really well, they had a good defensive organisation and then when they had the ball they were dangerous.

"They gave us probably the hardest match we've had this season."
