22:24 (IST)25 NOV 2017


Well, that's that... United have three points, and that's all they'll give a damn about. 

Thank you for reading, Anirudh Menon signing out. 'Twas a pleasure


22:22 (IST)25 NOV 2017

95' Pogba takes it to the corner, but can't really keep it there... no matter, though...

22:21 (IST)25 NOV 2017

94' Knockaert swings in a lovely ball that Propper can only header-loop it into De Gea's hands. 

22:21 (IST)25 NOV 2017

93' Brighton are pushing United to the brink here... Duffy wins a header that leads to a throw-in for the away side... they have United pegged into their own box here

22:20 (IST)25 NOV 2017

92' United take the ball the corner-ish, but Lukaku's touch lets him down and Brighton motor forward. 

22:18 (IST)25 NOV 2017

91' Five minutes added on. This is going to be a spicy, spicy, five minutes

22:17 (IST)25 NOV 2017

90' Lukaku does superbly to track Bruno all the way back to his own third and put in a superb sliding tackle that stops the veteran Brighton full-back's charge

22:16 (IST)25 NOV 2017

89' OOO LA LA! Lukaku played in Zlatan who backflicks it Pogba, the Frenchman returns it first time - and the big Swede smashes a volley wide. That would have been some goal

22:15 (IST)25 NOV 2017

88' Final change for Brighton as Izzy Brown comes on for the vaguely disappointed Pascal Gross

22:15 (IST)25 NOV 2017

87' Fellaini and Pogba combine to release Zlatan on the counter and the Swede plays in Mkhitaryan with a superb ball - while at the same time being smashed into by Duffy - the Armenian motors into the box but can't do anything with it. Meanwhile, Duffy's a lucky boy to escape with just a yellow there as the ref goes back to him

22:13 (IST)25 NOV 2017

86'... OOOO MY LORD! Gross fizzed in an absolute peach of a ball that Duffy meets with a superb jump but the header is way to weak, and way to wayward to trouble De Gea. 

22:12 (IST)25 NOV 2017

85' Matic rams into Izquierdo and that's a cheap freekick from which Gross can pick out someone in the box...

22:11 (IST)25 NOV 2017

83' Bong twists and turns before extricating himself from Mkhitaryan's attentions but his ball into the box is a weak one. 

22:09 (IST)25 NOV 2017

81' Mkhitaryan swings the ball into the far post - where Smalling thunders a header into the ground and over the bar. 

22:08 (IST)25 NOV 2017

80' Izquierdo tries to pry open Brighton but the ball finds only Fellaini, he duly passes the ball along to Pogba - who in turn finds Ibra... the big Swede charges into the box and smashes a shot that takes a deflection off Dunk and that's another corner for United

22:06 (IST)25 NOV 2017

79' Maruoane 'Zinedine' Fellaini comes on in Rashford's stead as United look to close the game down without further drama. 

22:06 (IST)25 NOV 2017

78' Rashford runs at Bruno, cuts inside and sends a weak shot dribbling into the hands of Matty Ryan 

22:05 (IST)25 NOV 2017

77' Izquierdo sprints away from Pogba as Brighton counter brightly again and Bruno teases in another exceptional ball that simply fizzes across the face of the box.

22:04 (IST)25 NOV 2017

76' Matic walks past a Hemed sliding tackle like it's the silliest thing he's ever seen. What strength from the Serb.... he then finds Valencia on the other flank where the Ecuadorian looks to have won a penalty but the ref adjudges Bong's handball to have been unintentional.

22:03 (IST)25 NOV 2017

75' Knockaert does brilliantly well to steam past Young and Rashford before pulling back another tremendous ball into the box that just misses everyone in yellow inside the box

22:02 (IST)25 NOV 2017

74' Brighton make a double switch as they try and claw back the point they feel they deserve - Murray off, Hemed on and March off, Izquierdo on

22:00 (IST)25 NOV 2017

72' Ibrahimovic is manhandled by Dunk and the centre-back surges forward in the great tradition of Der Kaiser... he plays a quick one-two and continues forward where Lindelof does just well enough to keep him at bay

21:58 (IST)25 NOV 2017

70' United are playing a bit of keep-ball right now, and why not, eh? Lukaku bullies his way past half the Brighton team before winning a throw-in... Mourinho takes the chance to bring on Henrikh Mkhitaryan for Anthony Martial

21:56 (IST)25 NOV 2017

68' Matic swings a lovely ball out to Young... the Englishman whips past Knockaert with a lovely little shuffle before sticking it into the near post where Lukaku's header is off-target

21:54 (IST)25 NOV 2017

OH MY! Another lovely Rashford ball can be cleared only till Young. He has a pop - and it takes a massive deflection off Dunk and loops into the far corner of the net. How United needed that. 

21:53 (IST)25 NOV 2017


21:53 (IST)25 NOV 2017

66' A fighting, battling Lukaku raises the volume a notch by smashing into March with a lovely tackle, and winning another corner....

21:52 (IST)25 NOV 2017

65' United look like they are playing a food ol' fashioned 4-4-2 but in reality that's more like a 4-2-4. Zlatan drops deep and attempts to pick Lukaku out, but Duffy's got that under control

21:51 (IST)25 NOV 2017

63' Pogba smashes into the box - and is tripped - but for some reason the ref allows play to carry on until Zlatan wins a corner off Bruno. The corner comes to naught, despite some sweet, sweet skills from Rashford that had Propper seeing bees swarm around his head. 

21:49 (IST)25 NOV 2017

62' Propper smashes into Rashford and Mourinho takes the opportunity to take off Mata and bring on Ibrahimovic. Old Trafford absolutely loves the sight of him sprinting onto the field

21:48 (IST)25 NOV 2017

60' When Brighton move forward they really do look threating. Murray, Gross and Knockaert exchange passes before Mata intercepts a weak March ball. The Spaniard is in turn bullied off the ball but Stephens ball into Murray finds the veteran well offside, 

21:46 (IST)25 NOV 2017

58' Brighton played the ball out for their winger to receive treatment but United don't see the need to give the ball back.... Murray is incensed and smashes into Pogba and that's a yellow. 

21:44 (IST)25 NOV 2017

57' That tackle has got the crowd going and decibel levels are at an all-time high (for the day, that is) as Knockaert continues to receive treatment on the pitch

21:43 (IST)25 NOV 2017

56' A thundering Lindelof sliding tackle sets up another Manchester United attack but Valencia's ball into the box is cleared well. Knockaert is rolling around the ground in pain and United keep playing on - as is their right - till Rashford gifts it back. 

21:42 (IST)25 NOV 2017

54' Anthony Knockaert takes an age to set up a freekick on the half-way line and it's all almost worth the wait. He pumps a beautiful ball in, March heads it down and Murray looks like he'll do the ol' swivel, turn, and shot - but Pogba does exceptionally well to keep hte big man at bay. 

21:40 (IST)25 NOV 2017

53' Ashley Young finds himself on the edge of the box - fakes a shot on his right foot, jinks onto his left and larrumps one well wide of goal 

21:39 (IST)25 NOV 2017

51' Young kills all that momentum dead by straying offside.

21:38 (IST)25 NOV 2017

50' Pogba plays in a lovely reverse ball that finds Martial in space down the right flank - but his ball into the box is cut out. Pogba and Rashford then exchange quick passes into Lukaku's feet - and the Belgian almost finds Martial with a sumptuous backheel. 

21:36 (IST)25 NOV 2017

49' Mata has a pop from the edge of the box -he shouldn't have.  

21:36 (IST)25 NOV 2017

48' Rashford skins March before trying to do the same to Bong... the left back then seems to palm him off the ball, but the ref asks the furious Rashford to get up

21:35 (IST)25 NOV 2017

47' Brighton dominate possession before Propper is allowed to take a shot at goal from the edge of the box.... the ball's nestling somewhere in row Z at the moment. 

21:34 (IST)25 NOV 2017

46' Much to the collective relief of Old Trafford, Paul Pogba seems to be a-okay. On the pitch, March plays a Pogba-esque crossfield that finds Knockaert in all sorts of space. He lays it off to Gross. The German takes a touch then sends Smalling back to school with a delicious swivel of his hips... he pings it across the box but no one can meet it. 

21:32 (IST)25 NOV 2017


21:18 (IST)25 NOV 2017


A first half of great entertainment but no end-result saw Brighton and Hove Albion give as good as they got - although there were spells of immense pressure from United that the home side really ought to have capitalised on. 

21:16 (IST)25 NOV 2017

46' Pogba seems to have picked up a knock and requires attention, and everyone in Red will be hoping that it's just a contact issue. 

21:16 (IST)25 NOV 2017

45' Nothing comes from the corner, but.... OH MY LORD! Rashford puts in another lovely ball that Lukaku rises highest to power a header at goal - Ryan does well to keep it out before Pogba stretches and prods it at goal from two yards... Ryan saves that too! Immense reflexes. Simply stunning. 

21:14 (IST)25 NOV 2017

44' UFF! Rashford whips a lovely ball into the box... all curl and power but Ryan punches it clear. 

21:14 (IST)25 NOV 2017

43' Brighton are passing the ball around with easy confidence - and it's well earned, they're standing toe-to-toe with United and giving back as good as they get. 

21:13 (IST)25 NOV 2017

42' Young, United's best player on the day, marauds into the box - through Knockaert and Bruno with a touch of superb skill... but his decision making lets him down at the end and his smash across the box is hacked away by Duffy

21:11 (IST)25 NOV 2017

40' Lukaku finds Mata inside the box with a neat little ball but the Spaniard is forced backward by an alert Dunk who'd read the run... Lukaku tries an ambitious right-footed pass across the box to Martial but it takes a deflection and bounces into Ryan's grateful gloves
