Brighton vs Manchester United LIVE: Latest score, goals and updates from Premier League fixture tonight



Manchester United take on Brighton tonight in the Premier League as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side continue their pursuit of the top four.

United are in-form and full of confidence, having thrashed Sheffield United 3-0 and advanced to the FA Cup semi-finals last week, although they remain five points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea.

Brighton have also enjoyed a successful restart, with Neal Maupay playing hero and villain – scoring the winner against Arsenal and missing a penalty against Leicester – as the Seagulls have taken four points from their two games. Follow all the action live:




69 mins: The second drinks break comes and goes. Brighton started the second half well and they’ve been more expansive, more of a threat to United but a wonderful counter-attacking move has sent them further behind. 

Trossard finds Connolly with a ball to the edge of the box. Connolly turns towards goal and fires off a shot. De Gea reacts well and pushes it over the bar. 


66 mins: Wan-Bissaka takes the ball to the byline after Greenwood sends it out wide to him. The Man Utd fullback crosses the ball into the middle and Williams is there to win the header. He sends the ball towards goal and wins a corner as it deflects out of play.

SUBS


63 mins: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes his first substitutions. Bruno Fernandes, Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba go off with Scott McTominay, Brandon Williams and Andreas Pereira coming on.


54 mins: Dan Burn goes on a good run for Brighton. He gets down the left wing and uses his long legs to stay ahead of Wan-Bissaka. Burn puts a decent cross into the six-yard box, Maupay is there but he misses the ball and De Gea cleans up.

GOAL!


50 mins: GOAL! Brighton 0 – 3 Man Utd – (Fernandes)

United flow elegantly from defence to attack. Maguire heads the ball out of his own box to Matic. who fires a long ball out to the left. Greenwood chases it down as Rashford, Martial and Fernandes flood into the box. Greenwood crosses the ball to the far post and Fernandes guides it into the goal. As easy as you like. 


48 mins: Better from Brighton. Trossard brings the ball up the pitch and sends it out wide to Montoya. He puts a cross into the box that gets deflected into MacAllister. He tries to find Maupay but the ball is cleared away by Man Utd.


Second half: A double change for Brighton at half-time as Maupay and Trossard come on in place of Lamptey and Propper.


Here’s a reminder of where and when you can catch the rest of the Premier League season as it nears it’s conclusion: 

 


45 mins: Brighton need half-time, they’ve hardly seen the ball except to bring it out from the back of the net. There’ll be two more minutes to be added on.


42 mins: Brighton send the ball over to the right wing to Propper. He puts a really good cross into the far post. Dan Burn is the target and he almost gets to the ball but Pogba does enough to put him off and the cross goes out of play.


39 mins: Brighton sweep forward in a rare attack but lose the ball just over the halfway line. It’s sent up to Fernandes who sends it out to Rashford on the left. Rashford gives it back to him and Fernandes tries to play in Greenwood but Dunk gets there first and boots it clear.


36 mins: The visitors are in total control, they’re playing with a confidence that’s built up since the restart of the Premier League. 

Rashford takes a long ranged shot from the left edge of the box as the Brighton centre-backs drop off him. He doesn’t connect well and the ball spoons out of play. 


33 mins: The Pogba/Fernandes partnership was the focus of the pre-match build-up and they’ve just proven it isn’t just talk. Man Utd look like a proper team again. One that can challenge for the top four at least.


27 mins: It’s been all Man Utd so far. Brighton are defending deep and when they do get the ball up to Connolly he’s got so much to do he can barely get to the edge of the penalty area before he’s overwhelmed by defenders.


24 mins: Rashford plays the ball into the box for Martial and the United striker wins a corner. Fernandes whips it deep into the box for Harry Maguire who heads it wide of the far corner. The players take the first drinks break.
