Manchester United were brilliant at Old Trafford as they won 3-1 against Brighton in their final game ahead of a two-week-long international break.

The Red Devils opened the scoring with a lucky Andreas Pereira goal, and less than two minutes later a scrappy attempt from Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay ensured that Propper netted an own goal.

Lewis Dunk’s superb header did give the Seagulls some consolation but Marcus Rashford’s picturesque goal cemented the three points for the home side.


David De Gea – 7.0

Great shotstopping from the Spaniard but couldn’t do much to keep out Dunk’s brilliant headed attempt. His national team spot seems shaky.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7.8

Back to his tackling brilliance and promising forward runs.

Harry Maguire – 7.7

Could have easily scored his debut goal for the Red Devils. Was impeccable in his ball-carrying skills.

Victor Lindelof – 7.5

Nothing too special from the Swede, who could have done a lot more to ensure that United didn’t sit too deep leading to the corner that stripped them off a cleansheet.

Brandon Williams – 8.0

Old Trafford are in love with the teenager who made his full Premier League debut and almost scored to commemorate it. Can easily oust Luke Shaw from the starting spot in the future.

Fred – 8.2

Was tremendously impressive in the midfield and actually started the flow of play that led to two of United’s goals. Steady dynamics from the Brazilian.

Scott McTominay – 8.2

Brilliant as usual and instrumental for the Red Devils. Did struggle a bit and his injury at the end will certainly be worrying ahead of the break.

Andreas Pereira – 7.9

Redeemed some of his past follies with his goal and constant long attempts but will have to do a lot more to stay in a regular role after Paul Pogba regains fitness, particularly since the Frenchman seems earmarked for the no.10 role now.

Daniel James – 8.4

The silent and pacey hero of the game delivering constant crosses. Could have easily had two to three assists to his name.

Anthony Martial -8.5

Played creator-in-chief today with his two assists and selfless style of play. Ought to have had scored a couple himself. Man of the Match?

Marcus Rashford – 8.5

Netted a pretty goal but could have easily had a hattrick and then some to his name. The open miss will be hard to forget.



Jesse Lingard -7.5

Was impressive during his time on the pitch but wasn’t passed to on the right occasions.

Marcos Rojo and Mason Greenwood – 

Brought on too late to make a significant contribution.
