As the table looks today, Man Utd are in 2nd place, with 60 points from 30 matches, while Brighton sit in 16th, with 32 points from 30.

Brighton started the first half well, with a goal from Danny Welbeck at the 13 minute mark, finishing the first half 0-1.

The Red Devils continued to apply pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to a goal from Marcus Rashford at the 62 minute mark. They then scored again, increasing their advantage thanks to a goal from Mason Greenwood, 83 minutes in with a final score of 2-1.

Man Utd brought on Daniel James, Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay for Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba. Brighton brought on Alexis MacAllister, Andi Zeqiri and Alireza Jahanbakhsh, to replace Leandro Trossard, Adam Lallana and Jakub Moder.
