Gary Neville believes that Manchester United’s defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion will have been the final straw for some of the Red Devils’ players.

Jose Mourinho watched his side slump to a disappointing 1-0 loss on the South Coast as the Red Devils suffered a blow to their hopes of finishing in second place this term.

The defeat still leaves Manchester United in second place in the table as they bid to try and secure the runners-up spot behind Manchester City.

However, former Manchester United defender Neville feels that the manner of Friday night’s defeat could well spell the end for some of the Red Devils’ players under Mourinho.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Neville said: “My view is that ultimately he [Mourinho] doesn’t like some of those players. He’s had enough of them and they are going to go. That’s what I drew from it.

“They were absolutely terrible tonight. They’ve played badly at times this season, but won and shown some spirit, but this was not good enough.

“Alright, it’s the end of the season, it’s a game against Brighton and they’ve probably already got second place but they are wearing a Manchester United shirt and the standards have to be a lot higher than that.

“Jose Mourinho looked tonight like he’d lost faith in some of those players.”

Manchester United are still aiming to finish in second place this season, which would represent their highest placed finish since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement back in 2013.

The Red Devils are also still hoping to end the campaign with a trophy, and they are set to take on Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley at the end of the month.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.
