The campaign has also seen discontent from the supporters over the Glazers' failure to sell the club as takeover talks drag on, with the toxic atmosphere seemingly impacting on the players after three defeats in their first five games.
The dismal defeat to the Seagulls at Old Trafford meant they now drop down to 13th place in the Premier League, with club legend Gary Neville claiming the club had a 'culture of greed and ill discipline' that was brought about by the Glazer family's ownership.
The Sun have now claimed that in the aftermath of the latest defeat, four stars were involved in a dressing room bust-up.
Manchester United have denied reports that players were involved in a dressing room bust-up
Erik ten Hag's side have been hit by a turbulent start to the season and have lost three games
The report alleges that captain Bruno Fernandes was one of the main high-profile stars involved after confronting team-mate Scott McTominay.
Defenders Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof - who both played 90 minutes together - are also said to have 'lost it with each other', with manager Ten Hag 'trying to restore order' as a post-match inquest began.
However, Manchester United have refuted the claims of the report when contacted by Mail Sport.
United are also without winger Antony, who is taking time away from the first team after being accused of assault in Brazil. Meanwhile, the club also decided to loan Mason Greenwood to Getafe after charges of attempted rape and assault against him were dropped.
Pundit and former United defender Neville had already alluded to tensions in the dressing room this week when he suggested unhappy players could be 'bugs' who are creating 'discomfort and uncertainty' among Ten Hag's ranks.
