Brighton 1-0 Man United
It was really enjoyable in the first half, with some fine attacking football. It's funny that it was 0-0. Although if Manchester United had an elite striker, they'd almost certainly have scored.
United was given its first opportunity shortly after the game started. Although Fernandes fed Antony, the winger missed the goal. Later, when Mitoma pounced on a loose ball in the visitors' defense, Brighton missed a great opportunity of their own. The Japanese international player opted to have De Gea save his dreadful attempt rather than square for Enciso to tap in. Ten Hag's team had the better opportunities for the remainder of the half, and Steele, a busy goalie for Brighton, stopped Rashford and Martial to hold his team level at the interval.
It is safe to say that Brighton has earned that by piling more and more pressure on Manchester United, who lost the midfield battle in the second half. Shaw hadn't put a foot wrong all night, and then he put up his hand, which signified Another bad away day for United as MacAllister scores from the spot kick.
Premier League Table
Brighton are now within four points of Liverpool with two games in hand, while Manchester United have lost crucial points in the top four race.
