Spirited Brighton beat Man United to ensure Premier League stay

Manchester United v Brighton & Hove Albion

Manchester United v Brighton & Hove Albion

Another big money attacking player, Alexis Sanchez, was also out of commission due to injury, and the Red Devils (who were terrible all around) really did nothing in the final third.

Chants of "we are staying up" rang around a packed house at the Amex Stadium at full-time as victory moved Brighton up to 11 and more importantly eight points clear of the bottom three. It's also signed for the departure of some of the players from the dressing room.

"But if we'd lost today and the next two, it would have been a real feeling of injustice had we gone down".

"I knew what was going to happen and I told them".

Marcus Rashford has failed to impress despite a rare chance to start up front during the match against Brighton.

"Fair enough we are battling to hang on to second place but we have not managed to win our initial target which was to win the Premier League title and to give a good account of ourselves in the Champions League but we have also not managed to do that".

Jose Mourinho's side are nearly certain to finish second in the league table, but the manager was still frustrated with the disappointing display from his players at the Amex. "Probably we are not as good individually as people think and I keep saying that to finish in the top four is great and it's more than great if we finish second, but now we need four points and we must try to get them", Mourinho added.

It was no more than Brighton deserved after outplaying their more illustrious rivals throughout the contest and they sent a passionate home crowd into raptures after Gross headed home a 57th-minute victor.

"I didn't succeed in persuading my players that the four points to get second are very important". I wouldn't say disappointed.

The Belgian, whose future remains uncertain with his contract nearly up, had the ball in the net after three minutes but he was offside when he turned home Rashford's free-kick.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton was delighted after seeing the Seagulls, who beat United 1-0 in their last top-flight meeting at this venue in 1982, avoid relegation.
