Ian Wright has admitted that he is unsure what Manchester United are about any more.

The Red Devils suffered their first Premier League loss of the 2018-19 season at the Amex Stadium on Sunday evening.

Manchester United were 2-1 winners against Leicester City in their opening Premier League game earlier in August.

Brighton, though, eased to a relatively comfortably win over a hapless Manchester United side on the coast.

The 20-time English champions missed out on some of their top targets in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United failed to strengthen their options at centre-half and right wing but did bring in three new players.

Former Arsenal striker Wright believes Manchester United are losing their way under current Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho.

“They have completely gone away from what Man United are about,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“I don’t know what Man United are about any more.”

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last term to ensure their continued participation in the Champions League.

The Red Devils signed Shakhtar Donetsk star Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant in the summer.
