Manchester United Lose To Brighton After Conceding Desperately Sloppy Goal

Brighton & Hove Albion made certain of another season of Premier League football thanks to a famous 1-0 victory over a below-par Manchester United at the Amex Stadium.

Pascal Gross' goal - awarded via the assistance of goalline technology - settled the contest as the hosts secured a famous win to hit the magical 40-point mark.

Brighton will have been disappointed not to have taken the lead going into the halftime break, as the Seagulls had the best of the chances throughout the first period.

The Belgian, whose future remains uncertain with his contract nearly up, had the ball in the net after only three minutes but he was offside when he turned home Rashford's free-kick.

From that moment, it was all Brighton.

David de Gea was the only United player selected in the PFA's Premier League team of the year and the Spaniard showed why he has again been his side's outstanding performer this season with a stunning fingertip save to turn a dipping volley from Glenn Murray behind.

The Spaniard was forced into another great save soon after, when Izquierdo cut in from the left and De Gea had to tip his effort over the bar. Steve Sidwell admitted that Brighton identified the areas either side of Nemanja Matic as where United were most vulnerable.

"With Pascal Gross, what's been important for us is he hasn't been injured and he's always been available for us".

Mourinho's refusal to be without Lukaku has often been questioned, especially when the 25-year-old was running on fumes during the winter. "We have got to make sure we are ready for the next one and obviously it is disappointing tonight, but we have got to get ourselves back on the training pitch, get working and look to the next game".

Manchester United are without Alexis Sanchez for their trip to Brighton after the forward sustained an injury.

What time does the Brighton vs Manchester United match start? It was a performance lacking in urgency until the 70th minute, when United seemed to realise the gravity of the situation, but a defeat with intensity and discipline of this nature was no less than they deserved.

The contract, though, is still unsigned, and his 67 minutes against Brighton did nothing to strengthen Fellaini's hand.

The unsafe Jose Izquierdo got to the by-line and when his cross was parried by De Gea, the ball crossed the line from Gross's header by the finest of margins before being hooked clear by Marcus Rojo.

Where you might question Pogba and Martial's drive and mentality, you can not level the same accusations at Rashford.

Their clearest opportunity of the game arrived when Lingard and Rashford connected well, but the former fired his shot off target from just eight yards. I know we can do it, we only have two matches to get the four points we need.
