Manchester United sealed another victory in front of their home fans at Old Trafford as they defeated Brighton And Hove Albion with a 2-1 scoreline.

Paul Pogba broke the deadlock at the 27th minute of the game as he converted a penalty netting the ball at the right-hand bottom corner. They started to provide more pressure on Brighton's defence as United made it 2-0 at the 42nd minute of the match when Marcus Rashford curled the ball into Brighton's net as he sowed his individual skills. Diogo Dalot was named as the assist provider.

In the second half, Manchester United tried to extend the lead, but Brighton's defence denied the Red Devils many times. On the other hand, Brighton scored their first goal of the match at the 72nd minute of the match. This time, Pascal Gross was the goal scorer. Davy Propper provided the assist through a cross and De Gea failed to save Gross' tremendous header.
