Cristiano Ronaldo meets: Manchester United beats Brighton
Leadership and then gave away again? Unlike at 1: 1 in Burnley and last the 1: 1 against Southampton Manchester United could bring a narrow lead over time this time. At the home game against Brighton & Hove Albion, it did not look for a long time afterwards.
The eleven of Interim Trainer Ralf Rangnick was launched with Elanga, Fred and Lindelöf for Rashford, Pogba and Varane, but did extremely difficult at the beginning. The surprise team from Brighton around Coach Graham Potter, who is trading as one of the best English coaches at the moment, kicked away from the kick-off and put the Red Devils under pressure. Thus, the Seagull was also the first chance (5.). On the other hand, Sancho failed to Sanchez (6.).
Brighton better – de Gea saves
As a result, the game was almost exclusively the guests, which raised a targeted and self-confident short pass play. The pale and idealess Red Devils were difficult – and had to thank De Gea in the 39th minute: with a gloss parade, the Spanish caster prevented the actually deserved goal at moder head; So go goats into the cabins.
Chance Festival of the Red Devils
The second pass should have more to offer after the event-poor first half. Just a few minutes after restart, Cristiano Ronaldo broke with a powerful shot of the spell (51th) – and even finished his goalless time of last six games without hits. A short time later, Brighton weakened by Dunk’s emergency brake itself (54.).
Following, a true storm riding of the English record champion developed. But neither Cristiano Ronaldo, nor Bruno Fernandes could expand the lead despite promising opportunities (66., 71., 75.). And so United had to tremble again and was lucky that modern hit the latte with his throttle (78.).
Otherwise, little from the ten Seagulls occurred in the second round. Shortly before the end Bruno Fernandes then cleared the last doubt out of the way and put the final point (90. + 7) with the 2-0. Manchester United pushed themselves to third place again and is likely to be awarded the next threesome on Sunday (3 pm) with descent grandate Leeds United.
