The match between Manchester United and Brighton and Hove is one of the most bizarre football matches you will ever come across. Brighton and Hove started the match very strongly and was awarded a penalty deservedly when Fernandez fouled Lamptey in the penalty box. Brighton and Hove striker Maupay took the penalty and scored, sending Manchester United goalkeeper De gea the wrong way. It was a great execution of the paneka penalty. Manchester United equalised through a Brighton and Hove own goal in the first half before Rashford gave United the lead with a well taken goal in the second half.

Brighton had a penalty overturned by the V.A.R after the referee had initially given a penalty. However, they equalised towards the end of the second half and was set to earn at least a point before the V.A.R drama; a bigger drama.

It was already past the 5 minutes added to the 90 when United launched an attack towards the Brighton penalty box. Maguire headed the ball towards the goal but it was headed out by a Brighton defender on the line. As soon as the ball left the Brighton penalty box, the referee blew the final whistle but Maguire protested that before the ball was headed off the Brighton goal line, it had made contact with an opponent's outstretched hand. Other United players followed suit and the referee was called back to review the action. After much review, the referee "reversed" his full time whistle after detecting that the ball had struck Maupay's hand and gave united a penalty which Bruno Fernandez converted.

This match definitely stands out as one of the most bizarre ever. For this three reasons:

1. Brighton and Hove hit the woodwork five (5) times yet lost.

2. Brighton had a penalty overturned by V.A.R.

3. The referee reversed his final whistle just to award United a penalty which they converted and won the match.
