PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEP! MANCHESTER UNITED 1 - 0 BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION 

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

Toodle-ooo!
...
95' Pogba takes it to the corner, but can't really keep it there... no matter, though...
...
94' Knockaert swings in a lovely ball that Propper can only header-loop it into De Gea's hands. 
...
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
...
92' United take the ball the corner-ish, but Lukaku's touch lets him down and Brighton motor forward. 
...
91' Five minutes added on. This is going to be a spicy, spicy, five minutes
...
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
...
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
...
88' Final change for Brighton as Izzy Brown comes on for the vaguely disappointed Pascal Gross
...
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
...
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. 
...
85' Matic rams into Izquierdo and that's a cheap freekick from which Gross can pick out someone in the box...
...
83' Bong twists and turns before extricating himself from Mkhitaryan's attentions but his ball into the box is a weak one. 
...
81' Mkhitaryan swings the ball into the far post - where Smalling thunders a header into the ground and over the bar. 
...
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
...
79' Maruoane 'Zinedine' Fellaini comes on in Rashford's stead as United look to close the game down without further drama. 
...
78' Rashford runs at Bruno, cuts inside and sends a weak shot dribbling into the hands of Matty Ryan 
...
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.
...
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.
...
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
...
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
...
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
...
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
...
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
...
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.
