Gary Neville has insisted that the Manchester United dressing room is still in high spirits despite their defeat by Brighton last weekend.

The Red Devils slumped to a disappointing 3-2 defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday afternoon as they lost their second Premier League game of the season to leave them three points off Manchester City after just two games.

Jose Mourinho has cast a frustrated figure at Old Trafford in recent weeks following a quiet summer transfer window for the Red Devils.

However, former Manchester United defender Neville has insisted that the Red Devils dressing room is still in a positive frame of mind despite the defeat.

Speaking on his Sky Sports podcast, Neville said: “I speak to people at the club and I think that there is a good spirit in the dressing room. Today [Sunday] is a poor performance.

“This idea… he’s not lost the players. I don’t think for one minute he’s lost the players so I think it would be wrong to suggest that about this game.

“That will be the wedge that will be tried to be driven.”

Manchester United will look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford next Monday night.

The Red Devils, who signed Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant in the summer transfer window, have not won the Premier League title since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.

They finished in second place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last season under Mourinho.
