Full time thoughts...

Brighton will feel slightly hard done by after such a solid defensive display. 

United needed a boost from an abysmal first half showing, and they got it!

Fernandes, Pogba, Shaw, Rashford, all looking their deadly best. 

Mason Greenwood was rewarded for his performance with a long awaited goal as a Champions League spot draws ever closer for the Red Devils!

20:1811 days ago

HALF TIME

A desperately disappointing half for United as they trail 0-1 to strugglers Brighton.

A half devoid of chances, Welbeck did well to finish his.
