Fred says three points vital for Man Utd against Brighton

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has labelled his side's win over Brighton on Sunday as the team's "best performance" of the season so far, while he also praised the leadership qualities of Harry Maguire.

And only two minutes later Davy Propper bundled the ball into the back of his own net as he attempted to stop Scott McTominay from scoring.

"But exhilarating, entertaining and great to see the boys enjoy themselves".

But it was a completely different story in the Europa League on Thursday as they beat Partizan Belgrade 3-0 and again shone during the visit of Brighton three days later.

The England worldwide has bagged six goals from his previous six starts for the Red Devils and that includes crucial strikes against the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea.

"The table does not really matter at the moment: we need to keep improving and keep winning games and see where it takes us". At 2-0 I had one chance when maybe I could have done a bit better but at half-time we regrouped and I thought we did better in the second half.

TOP PERFORMERS: Jack Eichel leads the Sabres with 17 points, scoring seven goals and registering 10 assists. Brayden Point has recorded six assists over the last 10 games for Tampa Bay.

Teenage full-back Brandon Williams, making his first league start, James and Rashford were all denied by Ryan as United threatened to make the victory even more emphatic, while McTominay suffered a worrying late ankle injury which will be assessed on Monday.

Brighton are looking to record a third successive Premier League win at Old Trafford on Sunday.

"He's done nothing wrong since he's come in", said Solskjaer. "It looked painful, Scotty's not one for rolling around".

Asked if this was a case of United just being too good for his side, he said: "I think so on the day, yeah".

"But today they started off on the front foot, grew in confidence and then it was just a question of how many are we doing to get?"
