Bruno Fernandes leads United's comeback

Brighton took the lead with a Welbeck goal, but the Portuguese Red Devils midfielder was activated in the second half, making Rashford's goal and starring in Greenwood's.


With a comeback and with both goals in the second half, but Manchester United won again at Old Trafford and remains in second place in the Premier League. Although Solskjaer's men are 14 points behind City -with one game less-, the race for the runner-up is on their way as well as their presence in the next edition of the Champions League -they have an 11-point advantage over the fifth-placed team- and Much of it is thanks to Bruno Fernandes, who was instrumental in the win against Brighton. The 'seagulls' began winning by 0-1 thanks to a goal from Welbeck, who returned to the Theater of Dreams, where he has scored in his last three starts, but the Portuguese playmaker of the Red Devils was activated in the second half: he made Rashford's goal and was the protagonist in Greenwood's.

Graham Potter's team put the Red Devils on the ropes. Despite the fact that the results and their position in the table are not striking - they are 16th with a six-point margin over the drop - the football played by the 'seagulls' allows us to dream of a better future. Potter has given Brighton a fresh and dynamic air, very intense in pressure and with a tactical script that is capable of blocking the best rival footballers. This is how Manchester United suffered, who did not shoot once on goal in the first half - for the first time at home since August 2019 - and it was not until the appearance of Bruno Fernandes that he found a crack in the visiting center of the field. .

The Portuguese received the ball between the lines and started with a slight space that he took advantage of as he well knows. She approached the area, waited for the right moment and gently assisted Rashford, who crossed her to the long post perfectly to achieve the equalizer on the scoreboard. Later, she returned to put a center to the area and the continuation of Pogba sent her to the Greenwood network. By then Brighton had requested a penalty on Welbeck that Michael Dean decided not to consult with the VAR.

In Manchester United's goal was Dean Henderson, again a starter ahead of De Gea. For the third time in a row, the longest run since 2012, the Spanish goalkeeper did not start in the league with Manchester United. His paternity trip to Spain opened a door to regularity for Henderson ... and so far he has not missed it.
