Socceroo helps ensure Brighton's Premier League survival

  • Chris Hughton says his Brighton side have had a 'normal' season in the Premier League for a promoted club

"I don't think he wants to be stuck on the touchline but he's not going to get that at Manchester United".

The Brazilian is supposedly said to favour a move to Manchester and Jose Mourinho's side are leading the race with Manchester City no longer interested.

Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku were both missing from the matchday squad, meaning it was a chance for Rashford and Martial to prove themselves, but failed.

The Red Devils will have been looking to build momentum ahead of their FA Cup clash with Chelsea towards the end of the month, however, they were on the end of a huge upset.

A second-half goal from German midfielder Pascal GroƟ was ultimately the difference between the two sides at Falmer Stadium as Brighton secured their Premier League survival with the win.

The three points could not have come at a better time. And Sky Sports' Geoff Shreeves revealed how Mourinho reacted to the mistake. I know we can do it, we only have two matches to get the four points we need.

Matt Ryan saved well from Rashford before Martial and Jesse Lingard fired off target as Brighton held out despite a late United rally. I thought for some the possibility to start a game, to give reason to the ones who criticise my choices. Why always Lukaku? Why always Lukaku?'

"They are fresher than others that played so many matches in the season, to play against a team that is strong at home and intense".

"You have the answer - why always Lukaku, why always this, you have the answer".

The club's chairman Tony Bloom said: "When we finally got to the Premier League, it was about nights like tonight". The next two games are crucial to see who will play in the final which United can not afford to lose. But before the hour mark, the host's effort was rewarded when they pushed forward and the cross of Izquidero met the head of Pascal Gross who powered in home to give them the lead.

The result lifts the Seagulls to 40 points, a usual benchmark to assure one's league status, while United must wait to ensure a second-place finish after a listless display.
