Manchester United won a cameo against Brighton 2-1 in the 30th round of the English Football Championship.
Manchester United welcomed Brighton on Sunday night, most recently defeating the Red Devils in August 2018. But since then, MU has won five consecutive victories, scoring three consecutive goals in the past four games, and won by three points.
Compared with his recent starting team, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has changed four positions. This time the Norwegian manager has assigned Henderson-Wan-Bissaka, Lindelöf, Maguire, Shaw-Fred, Pogba-Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Rashford-Cavani Sent to the field.
The game started at a very fast pace, Manchester United almost controlled the game from the first minute, and almost led the game in the 8th minute. Bruno Fernandes’ pass happened to lead in front of Mason Greenwood, who took a high shot from the left post.
Then a few minutes later, on the other side, former Manchester United player Danny Welbeck led Brighton. Dean Henderson was able to defend Welbeck’s head well for the first time, but the bodyguards no longer had a chance to keep the goalkeeper. Since leaving the club in 2014, the 30-year-old British forward has scored his third goal against MU.
Since the 1997-98 season, these two Manchester United players have scored for Manchester for the first time in a single season. This year, Wilfried Zaha has been productive with Danny Welbeck, most recently Dion Dublin and Mark Hughes.
Home player Manchester United didn’t make a shot in the first half, and the team performed poorly in the August 2019 game against Crystal Palace.After the turn, his game image did not change much, Manchester United played a huge advantage, which led to the 62nd minute. After a good attack, Bruno Fernandez passed to Rashford, and the England national forward shot the ball brilliantly to the goalkeeper in the lower right corner.
On the other hand, Welbeck broke into 16 years old and then fell under suspicious circumstances. The referee reviewed the case with the help of the video referee and then decided not to punish it because he did not commit a foul.
In the 77th minute, a rebound ball passed directly in front of Greenwood. The 19-year-old winger was immediately fired and the ball was just a stone’s throw away from the goal. In the hair of the game, the goals were gathered for the young English forward. Paul Pogba prepared for this situation, and Greenwood stepped forward and rushed into the Nets.
There are no more goals in the remaining time, so Manchester United can play against Brighton in an unfavorable situation. Despite the success, the team’s disadvantages are still obvious. The lead of Manchester is 14 points ahead of the leading city, and the lead of Leicester City is third.
