Manchester United vs Brighton & Hove Albion Match Preview Red Devils in desperate need of a win

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he is paying no attention to the Premier League table and is simply focusing on results despite a 3-1 win over Brighton lifting Manchester United up to seventh.

Andreas Pereira's deflected goal gave United the lead on 17 minutes and it was doubled two minutes later when McTominay forced Davy Propper into putting through his own net.

Lewis Dunk handed Brighton a lifeline in the second half, only for Rashford to restore United's two-goal advantage. Mahmoud Trezeguet scored a stoppage-time consolation for the visitors.

"Yeah, I think it's our best performance of the season", he said.

Solskjaer's side responded with a 3-0 victory against Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday evening. "How we didn't end up with five, six, or seven we don't know but exhilarating and entertaining and great to see the boys enjoy themselves". "Of course you can go back to Chelsea but today I thought the reaction after they scored was fantastic".


"He's in for a scan tomorrow so it could be a couple of weeks out but we hope not".

"Of course the Bournemouth game was disappointing but we've had loads of answers to what we're trying to do and if we don't get confidence from this, I don't know what to tell them".

It came from a blistering counter-attack and a beautifully weighted through ball from Fred, which Martial took in his stride.

United's front three of Rashford, Anthony Martial and Daniel James were too good for Brighton while 19-year-old left-back Brandon Williams, making his first Premier League start, was given a standing ovation by the Old Trafford crowd after being substituted in the final minutes. We've got some big lads and are a threat at set-pieces - we do a lot of work on them and we got another goal.
