Manchester United 2-1 Brighton: Mason Greenwood late header seal comeback win against Seagulls after Marcus Rashford’s equaliser cancels out ex-Red Devil Welbeck opener

Manchester United come from behind to defeat Brighton.

The visitors had a great first half and took the lead through Welbeck who headed in the rebound after seeing his first effort saved by Henderson after Greenwood hit the post.

Rashford then pulled one back for United with a low shot into the far bottom corner and Greenwood headed in the winner in the 83rd winner after latching onto Pogba’s scuffed volley.

Manchester United’s matchwinner Mason Greenwood to BBC after the game:”Credit to Brighton.

They scored the first goal, defended well and held us off. We had to break them down and we did that eventually.

“I remember [Danny Welbeck] as a United player. He scored a lot of goals for United and he’s still doing the same to this day so credit to him.”

“We weren’t worried. We knew we had the quality on the pitch. Everyone kept their heads. There’s a lot to play for.

United move four points above Leicester in third and are now unbeaten in their last 10 league games.

Their attention turns to the Europa League and their quarter-final with Granada on Thursday.

Brighton stay in 16th but are still six points clear of the relegation zone after Fulham’s loss earlier. Next up for them is Everton.
