The awesome and terrible is driving people crazy Brighton! His team Roberto De Jerbia few days before welcoming AEK for the premiere of the Europa League groups, blew past “Old Trafford” by winning 3-1 against Manchester United.
The “red devils” came into the match strongly and pressed for the quick goal, but once again their defensive function… betrayed them. The fast-moving visitors opened the scoring for the home side, with Antigra converting and Welbeck slotting past Onana to make it 1-0. A goal that… launched the pace, the ball was going up and down and United found the equalizer with Hoylund in the 40′, but the Danish forward’s goal was disallowed for offside.
The second half saw Brighton come on strong again and extend their lead in the 53rd minute, Lambtey turning to Gross who with a neat finish evaded an opponent to make it 2-0. De Gerby’s side had substance and were attacking the home side’s weaknesses, with Fati making his debut in the 64th minute for the Seagulls. And a little later (71′), Joao Pedro from Lambtey’s second assist of the match made it 3-0 for the amazing Brighton. All United managed was to go down 3-1 in the final, with Maibri scoring in the 73rd minute.
With this victory, Brighton reached 12 points and is in second place, i.e. -3 from the top, while the Manchester team is 12th with 6 points.
Manchester City came through London with an upset, winning 3-1 against West Ham, who are among Olympiakos’ opponents in the Europa League groups.
David Moyes’ side made it difficult for Guardiola’s side in the first half when they took the lead through Ward-Prowse in the 36th minute, but the visitors showed no particular inclination to… play and drop points. Because seconds after the start of the second half, Doku with his maiden goal in a City shirt leveled the score from Alvarez’s assist, with the Argentinian striker “making it” and Bernardo Silva’s 76th-minute goal for the upset .
Of course, Haaland couldn’t be missing from the scorers’ table as he put the icing on the cake in the 86th minute to set up a 3-1 final for Pep Guardiola’s 5/5 side in the league.
An unlikely come-back in stoppage time for Tottenham, who beat Sheffield United 2-1 and caught Liverpool in second place, showing that this year they are capable of returning to the top four of the Premier League.
All the latest in the last twenty minutes, plus stoppage time, of the match. Sheffield United managed to freeze the ‘Tottenham Stadium’ in the 74th minute with Hammer and looked set to leave London with a great result. Nevertheless, the extra… ten minutes of stoppage time were to have plenty of emotions. Tottenham found the equalizing goal in the 90’+8′, with Perisic serving the 1-1 that Risarlison wrote, while in the… caps the scorer became a creator and Kulusevski signed the overthrow of the “spurs”.
Important win for Aston Villa, who found two late goals in a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace to move to 9 points, while Fulham beat Luton 1-0 to move up to 7.
