Manchester United have relaunched themselves in the Premier League with Brighton at home. With art and the way for once.
In the need to win to avoid getting bogged down in the crisis just before the international break, Manchester United has fulfilled its mission by taking the measure of Brighton this Sunday. In front of their supporters, the Red Devils have finally delivered a convincing copy, including a very good Anthony Martial. Back in the starting lineup, the French striker delivered two assists.
Already decisive midweek against the Partizan of Belgrade in the Europa League (3-0), the former Monegasque has therefore once again met expectations. In the 17th minute, it was he who served Andres Pereira for the opener. And in the 66th, he reoffended by offering the break point to Marcus Rashford. The latter did not miss it, placing the leather on the crossbar. A goal that struck a blow to the morale of visitors, just back to 1-2 thanks to Dunk. After having done a lot for his partners, Martial could himself have turned into a scorer but his cross shot in the 87th, after a nice individual effort, was picked up by Matthew Ryan.
MU finally effective at home
In the first period, MU had managed to double the stake thanks to a csc of Dany Propper, put in difficulty on a head of Harry Maguire. In the end, the Mancunians put three goals. This is the first time they have slammed more than one home since the opening of the championship and the ride against Chelsea (4-0).
In winning this Sunday, Manchester United goes up in the first third of the rankings (7th). Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men, however, remain quite far from their goal, which is the qualification for the next Champions League (9 points behind, provisionally). Confirmation is expected after the truce with a move to Sheffield United (5th).
