Manchester United are currently embroiled in a close affair down on the south coast against Graham Potter’s impressive Brighton and Hove Albion.
United have survived a first-half scare after striker Neil Maupay fired the Seagulls into the lead from the spot after star-midfielder Bruno Fernandes was deemed to have fouled breakthrough talent Tariq Lamptey inside of the box.
United’s first-half blushes were saved just three-minutes though when club captain Harry Maguire poked home an equaliser from close range.
The first-half could have been even worse for the Reds though after wide-man Leandro Trossard hit both posts within the first half an hour.
Despite youngster Mason Greenwood having an early goal disallowed for a Marcus Rashford offside during the build-up play, United have unquestionably been the worst side on the pitch this afternoon.
The Reds’ now go into the break all square at 1-1 with Solskjaer undoubtedly keen to gather his young guns in the hope of ensuring that they can restart the second-half in much the same fashion they ended the first.
In light of United’s largely disappointing first 45-minutes loads of fans have taken to their social media to express their discontent with yet another sub-par performance.
Disjointed & hard to watch

Panicking…. they need to calm down a bit and pass the ball around. Press a bit more when not in position and force Brighton in making mistakes. Game is ther to be taken.
