Manchester United faced off against Brighton at Old Trafford earlier tonight as they looked to pick up a positive result at home. The visitors made a surprising start to the game as Danny Welbeck scored around the 13-minute-mark to hand his side a 1-0 lead against the run of play. However, Marcus Rahsford and Mason Greenwood scored two goals in the second forty-five minutes as the Red Devils came from behind to beat Brighton 2-1. Manchester United have now won 25 points from losing positions in the Premier League this season, nine more than any other team in the division.
Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player fared during the clash against the Seagulls.
Dean Henderson – 6.5/10
Henderson had a couple of nervy moments between the sticks, but he did a satisfactory job overall.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6.5/10
The English full-back put up a very average performance down the right flank tonight. Partly responsible for the concession of the first goal, he didn’t have much to offer in attacking terms either.
Victor Lindelof – 6.5/10
The Swedish centre-back could’ve done better to stop Danny Welbeck from scoring the first goal of the game.
Harry Maguire – 7.5/10
The skipper put up a dominant display at the back tonight as he made some crucial interceptions, blocks, and challenges to prevent the visitors from scoring a second goal.
Luke Shaw – 7/10
Shaw often drove forward to support his side’s attacking gameplay. He made some tricky situations look easy as he seemed full of confidence when in possession of the ball.
Paul Pogba – 9/10
The Frenchman stayed central and tried to dictate the proceedings throughout the 90 minutes. He even ended up bagging the assist for United’s second goal as his miscued shot fell in Greenwood’s way, which was subsequently converted.
Fred – 7/10
The Brazilian midfielder was mostly limited to defensive duties in his own half of the pitch.
Marcus Rashford – 8.5/10
The Englishman scored the equalising goal for the hosts tonight as he cleverly placed his shot into the bottom right corner. His pace and movement created all sorts of trouble for the Brighton defence.
Bruno Fernandes – 9/10
It’ll be fair to say that the Portuguese playmaker was far from his best tonight; however, he still managed to carve out two brilliant goal-scoring chances for his team-mates.
Edinson Cavani – 6/10
The Uruguayan striker wasn’t on the same wavelength as his team-mates tonight. He mistimed his runs on several occasions and often gave away the ball easily.
Mason Greenwood – 8/10
The youngster made some promising runs down the right flank, and he even hit the woodwork around the 8-minute-mark. Nonetheless, he found himself in the right place at the right time as he scored the winning goal of the game around the 83-rd minute.
Daniel James – 6/10
The Welsh international provided the hosts with some extra energy going forward.
Donny van de Beek – 6/10
The Dutchman added the much-needed solidity to United’s midfield.
