Manchester United Beaten 3 – 1 By Brighton at Old Trafford

In a stunning turn of events at Old Trafford, Manchester United suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion in a Premier League clash. The Seagulls continued their remarkable dominance over the Red Devils, securing their fourth consecutive victory against them.

The match started with Brighton showing their intent, and it was former Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck who opened the scoring for the visitors in the 20th minute. Welbeck calmly slotted home a 10-yard finish after a precise cross from S. Adingra, leaving Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana with no chance.

Manchester United attempted to respond, with Marcus Rashford creating several openings from the left flank, but they couldn’t find a way past Brighton goalkeeper Steele in the first half. There was even a controversial moment when a goal by Hojlund was initially awarded but later ruled out by VAR due to the ball crossing the byline.

The second half saw Brighton extend their lead with a brilliant strike from Pascal Groß in the 53rd minute. Tariq Lamptey and Kaoru Mitoma combined to set up Groß, who made no mistake from near the penalty spot.

Manchester United finally got on the scoresheet in the 73rd minute when Hannibal Mejbri struck a superb goal from outside the area, assisted by L. Martínez. However, any hopes of a comeback were dashed when Joao Pedro netted Brighton’s third goal in the 71st minute.

The match ended with Brighton claiming a deserved 3-1 victory, leaving the Old Trafford faithful disappointed and questioning their team’s performance. The Seagulls, on the other hand, celebrated their impressive win, taking their Premier League points tally to 12 under the guidance of manager Roberto De Zerbi.

This defeat will undoubtedly raise more questions about Manchester United’s form and consistency, while Brighton & Hove Albion continue to be a team to watch in the Premier League this season.
