Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku avoids Premier League suspension

The United striker will learn today whether he will be charged with violent conduct by the FA for twice aiming a kick at Gaëtan Bong, the Brighton defender.

"Players are men, men are different".

Lukaku has mustered just one goal in his past 10 matches for United following an impressive start to life at Old Trafford, but Mourinho refuses to criticise the striker.

"Didn't score, I don't care".

Lukaku, 24 struggled to impact on the game at Old Trafford as he laboured to impose himself on Brighton.

"I have described Lukaku as a pussycat, whereas Manchester United want a lion on display (and we all know which animal Zlatan Ibrahimovic likes to compare himself to)".

"Honestly, it is quite a surprise for me, but I think the supporters were fantastic", Mourinho said after the Brighton game.

"They have a squad full of very good players who are not normal to be in these mid-table teams".

For long periods of the game, United looked set for a draw as the newly promoted side showed inexperience to take their chances, and they were made to pay.

Ahead of their trip on Tuesday, Mourinho said he was still upset about the manner in which the game was officiated when United were beaten 3-1 at Vicarage Road last season.

He added: "Against Watford I was very upset with Watford's first goal after some guy sent [Anthony] Martial to the hospital and the referee let it go, that is the reason why I was very, very upset at Watford".

Manager Marco Silva continues to be linked with the managerial vacancy at Everton, having won plenty of admirers during his brief stint with Hull last season and his fledgling tenure at Watford.
