Manchester United 2 – 1 Brighton & Hove Albion Football Highlights
(English Premier League )
Venue : Old Trafford Stadium
Key Moments Recap :
27″ 1-0 : Pogba wins it. Pogba takes it. Pogba scores it!
It’s a trademark, slow run-up to the spot, but he lashes it into the corner, midway up the goal to Button’s left.
Pogba produces a celebration dance in front of the Stretford End, and United have a deserved lead.
42″ 2-0 : Dalot has it on the left, slips it inside the box for Rashford, but he has so much to do. With two fine touches he manages to evade his marker, and on the stretch from an angle he curls a beauty into the top right corner!
Solskjaer looking very, very satisfied on the bench.
