3: Fight for the shirt or do one | Brighton review

Manchester United suffered a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday. To make matters worse, only five players acknowledged the fans are travelling all the way to Brighton.

Dale is joined by Raman Paul, Paul Rowles...


2: Is Pogba trying to gain power over Mourinho? Leicester review | Brighton preview

Dale, Jonathan and Raman also preview this weekend's away trip to Brighton and answer your questions...
