Brandon Williams has been solid on his first Premier League start for Manchester United against Brighton at Old Trafford.
The 19-year-old came in at left-back for club captain Ashley Young in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s only change from last weekend’s defeat to Bournemouth.
And so far, Williams has yet again justified his first-team selection with an assured performance in defence.
The academy graduate seldom looked troubled against Graham Potter’s side as United went into the break with a comfortable 2-0 lead.
Andreas Pereira opened the scoring with a huge slide of luck via Dale Stephens’ deflection and the Reds doubled their lead following a goalmouth scramble with the ball eventually put into his own net by Brighton defender Davy Propper.
Williams has rarely put a foot wrong so far in a United shirt and it will be interesting to see if he can retain his place in the squad when Luke Shaw returns from injury.
