Brighton blitz Manchester United again to pile pressure on

Brighton & Hove Albion picked up right where they left coming out of the international break.

Manchester United struggled to compete with the red-hot Seagulls on Saturday, as manager Roberto De Zerbi’s men cruised to a convincing 3-1 victory at Old Trafford. Brighton have now beaten United in each of their last four Premier League encounters.

After falling behind 2-0, United fans booed manager Erik ten Hag’s decision to take off new arrival Rasmus Hojlund, who had a goal called back earlier in the game, for Anthony Martial. The substitution proved ineffective, as Brighton added an insurance goal minutes later. Youngster Hannibal Mejbri‘s impressive strike was mere consolation for United.

Brighton, who beat Newcastle United 3-1 before the international break, sit third in the Premier League following Saturday’s slate, while United are 12th after losing three of their opening five matches.

More to come.
