Incredible Late Drama As Manchester United Beat Brighton 3-2

Incredible Late Drama As Manchester United Beat Brighton 3-2

Manchester United beat Brighton 3-2 with a last-gasp penalty in an incredibly dramatic end to proceedings at the AMEX.

In a game where the Seagulls hit the woodwork no less than FIVE times, the hosts thought they had claimed a point when Solly March headed home an equaliser in the fifth minute of stoppage time.

Then, moments later when United went up the other end and won a corner, goalscorer Neal Maupay blatantly handled the ball in the area just as the referee blew his whistle for full-time.

Chris Kavanagh went to the screen and had no choice but to award a penalty - allowing Bruno Fernandes to score a 100th minute winner from the spot with the last kick of the game.

Maupay opened the scoring with a cheeky panenka penalty that left David De Gea looking like a fool, immediately producing Kylian Mbappe's 'crybaby' celebration.

Reece James Scores Incredible 35-Yard Thunderbolt Goal For Chelsea Against Brighton

United pulled level before half-time when Lewis Dunk put through his own net under pressure from Harry Maguire, before Marcus Rashford put the visitors in the lead with a superb solo goal.

The goal came after a penalty had been given for Paul Pogba tangling with Aaron Connolly, only for the decision to be overturned when VAR was referred to.

Leandro Trossard, who hit the woodwork three times in total, was denied by De Gea from close range moments prior to March notching at the far post.

But then when a spot-kick was correctly given in the dying embers, Fernandes was the coolest customer and put the penalty away emphatically with the last action of an enthralling encounter.
