Boss Chris Hughton blamed Albion's narrow defeat at Manchester United on "two poor goals".

Gaetan Bong brought down Paul Pogba inside the box for a penalty converted by the French star.

Marcus Rashford then beat Albion's subsequent goal scorer Pascal Gross before bending in the second from an angle inside the area before half-time.

Hughton had "no complaints" about the penalty.

He said: "The biggest disappointment is the goals we conceded. I thought we very much gave them a game.

"I certainly wasn't disappointed with the overall performance. I thought we conceded two poor goals.

"They'll talk about the (Rashford) finish. As the manager setting up against that you cannot allow him to have the ball in those type of areas.

"We needed a bit more quality in the final third and in general. At times we broke well approaching the final third and that's the difference in the quality."

United skipper Ashley Young admitted: "It was backs to the wall when they scored but we still created chances and we are delighted with that win."
