Man Utd 1-3 Brighton: Seagulls roar over helter-skelter Red Devils, Welbeck nets

Manchester United's dismal start to the new Premier League season continued on Saturday as they lost 3-1 to Brighton for the fourth top-flight game in a row.

Match Report
The Red Devils' difficult start to the season continued with Ten Hag’s side having been ruthlessly exposed at home by Brighton.

Danny Welbeck gave the Seagulls a first half lead, with Pascal Gross putting the visitors 2-0 up after the break.

The home fans expressed their frustration at proceedings when Ten Hag opted to substitute Hojlund, with the £75m summer signing’s home debut ending in the 64th minute.

Hojlund was withdrawn for Martial, with the decision greeted by a series of boos from the home supporters.

Man United’s misery was increased when Joao Pedro put the visitors 3-0 up, before Hannibal Mejbri’s consolation effort.
