Man Utd Battle Back To Sink Tau's Brighton

Premier League

Result: Manchester United 2-1 Brighton and Hove Albion

Date: 04 April 2021

Venue: Old Trafford

Manchester United extended their unbeaten run to 10 matches in the Premier League with a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has went for Dean Henderson in goal as David de Gea was benched, while Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani were also named in the line-up. Meanwhile, Percy Tau missed out as he is quarantining for 10 days.

The Red Devils nearly found the opening goal inside the opening 10 minutes when Mason Greenwood rattled the upright with a strike from the edge of the box.

Brighton took the lead against the run of play on 13 minutes after heading home from close range after seeing his initial effort saved by Henderson.

The Red Devils tried conjure up a few openings as they went in search of an equaliser, but they were unable to trouble Brighton shot-stopper Robert Sanchez for the rest of the first half.

It was a frustrating for Solskjaer's men who failed to register a single shot on target in the first half for the first time this season.

It took a while but United got the equaliser on 62 minutes as Joel Veldtman gifted the ball to Bruno Fernandes who set up Marcus Rashford for the composed finish.

That was to be Rashford's final involvement as the striker made way for Daniel James, who scored a vital winner for Wales during the international break this week.

United got the go-ahead goal with eight minutes left on the clock when Paul Pogba's miscued shot was headed home by Greenwood to seal maximum points.
