A dramatic injury-time penalty handed Manchester United a win at Brighton as the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side takes home their first three points of the season in a stunning game at Amex Stadium.
The dramatic match was settled with a penalty, as Bruno Fernandes goal handed the Red’s a win, spotted and awarded via a VAR check for Neal Maupay’s handball from a corner, all after on-field official Chris Kavanagh had blown the final whistle of the match.
Shortly after, Brighton were glad to have sealed a point that would have been the least they deserved when Solly March headed in a cross from Alireza Jahanbakhsh.
It was a fitting finale to a game that had seen Albion take the lead through a Maupay penalty before United did a come-back thanks to a Lewis Dunk own goal and a superb solo effort from Marcus Rashford.
As if that wasn’t enough, the home side also struck the woodwork five times (with Leandro Trossard responsible for three of them), saw one awarded penalty overruled by VAR and another potential one waved away by Kavanagh.
However, the visitors had two goals ruled out for offside.
