United Fall To Brighton In Shocking Display

United Fall To Brighton In Shocking Display

by | 20th August 2018

Manchester United’s start to the new season took a shocking turn for the worst as they lost to Brighton on Sunday.

 

Brighton stunned United by scoring three goals in the first half when Glenn Murray flicked in the opener in the 25th minute before Shane Duffy stroked home two minutes later.

 

Romelu Lukaku halved the deficit 11 minutes before the break, rising unmarked to nod in Luke Shaw’s ball, but Pascal Gross converted a penalty after a foul by Eric Bailly.

 

United captain Paul Pogba who after the match said the players did not show the right attitude throughout the game scored from the spot, deep in second-half stoppage time but it was not enough to deny Brighton a famous win.

 

“The attitude that we had was not like we wanted to beat them. They had more anger than us and that showed on the pitch,” Pogba told Sky Sports.

 

“I put myself first. My attitude wasn’t right enough. We’ll keep trying and keep pushing and obviously it’s a lesson for us.”
