Game Report

Highlights

Lethargic and very flat display from Man United on their visit to Brighton saw them deservedly beaten 2:3, with the Seagulls easily controlling things pretty much all second half after building a commanding two-goal lead before the break. United’s second goal was from a last-second penalty and despite huffing and puffing on the ball the Red Devils lacked penetration and on top of their shambolic first-half defending they offered very little in attack. Brighton did well with their chances before the break and despite still struggling defensively they were worthy winners.

Detail

Things might have been much different for United if Lukaku hadn’t scuffed his big early chance wide, with Pogba creating the opening for his teammate. However, this was the only notable opening for the visitors early on and without being hugely aggressive Brighton carried much more danger going forward.

March was particularly lively down the left wing for the hosts and time after time he was putting the unconvincing Young in awkward situations. The third time March got the better of Young on the flank his cross was attacked very well by Murray, who broke the deadlock with a thumping header.

Just two minutes later Brighton doubled their advantage after Duffy converted Knockhaert’s free-kick delivery. For both these goals United’s defenders showed a lack of physical presence inside their own box.

Luckily the Red Devils gave themselves a lifeline on 34 minutes when Shaw’s mishit volley turned into a nice pass for Lukaku, who applied a poacher’s finish.

Even after this lucky break United were unable to build any momentum and just before halftime Brighton restored their two-goal lead after Bailly gave away a penalty, which Gross converted.

All second half the visitors were given the initiative, but despite having 75% possession after the break United created nothing interesting in terms of chances and most of their passes were backwards, which infuriated the travelling fans.

Brighton comfortably ran the clock down and with Ryan’s first intervention after the break not coming until the dying minutes United never really looked like saving anything from this game.

Deep in stoppage time Fellaini was fouled inside the box though and from the spot Pogba scored, but there was not even time for the game to resume properly, with Brighton celebrating loudly after the final whistle.

Summary

Brighton continue to show two different faces at home and on the road, with the Seagulls in need of improving their away form. In this game Man United looked as tired as Mourinho has looked all summer and there are already plenty of worrying signs for the Red Devils, who look to lack pace and creativity, but also seem to struggle defensively.
