However, if the match stats were considered Man United was a bit ahead of Brighton, but somehow couldn’t shoot the ball inside the net. They beat their opposition in the race of every stat including ball possession, passes, and all, however, Brighton being less in that number, were more impactful, and eventually, they got the eventual win.
The first goal was scored by Brighton in the 30th minute, that came from Pascal Gross, and he scored his second goal of the match, soon in the 39th minute. Coming to the match stats, as said earlier, the Red Devils were a bit ahead of their opposition. They hit 17 shots and Brighton hit 15, out of which 5 and 4 were on target respectively.
