UK Four Manchester United moments vs Brighton you may have missed last minute news
MetiNews.Com - Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood took the headlines at the Amex as Man Utd romped to a straightforward 3-0 victory over Brighton.
Breaking News ! If you're a Manchester United fan, you'll most likely want to watch the highlights of their 3-0 victory over Brighton on repeat. From Bruno Fernandes and two superbly taken goals, to the genius passing of Nemanja Matic and the dead-eyed finishing of Mason Greenwood, it was a near perfect United display. It stretched their unbeaten run to 15 games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and significantly boosted their top four hopes. But there was so much to enjoy at the Amex Stadium on Tuesday night that some key moment flew under the radar. Here are some moments you may have missed from the Brighton game: Wan-Bissaka's touch It was the near-complete full-back display from Aaron Wan-Bissaka, the former Crystal Palace youngster who clearly wanted to dent the survival hopes of traditional rivals Brighton on Tuesday night, as well as continue his United progression of course. It started with a trademark early tackle to stop Yves Bissouma - as Wan-Bissaka did all game. Then there was a great touch past his man in the build-up to Fernandes' early chance that ricocheted off the post. The 22-year-old also claimed the assist for Greenwood's opening goal after some more excellent attacking play down the right. There was also an impudent flick to Fernandes in the 52nd minute, as Brighton came forwarded trying to respond to United's third goal. It showed Wan-Bissaka's class and composure in his own half.

Or a recovery drink? Either way, United fans seemed to love how relaxed Fernandes looked while sitting in the stands after another Man Of The Match display. Given that Fernandes had played the whole 120 minutes against Norwich in the FA Cup on Saturday, it was probably a wise decision from Solskjaer to take his Portuguese playmaker off after 64 minutes at Brighton, replaced by Andreas Pereira. He didn't have his best game at Carrow Road, but he is too important to United's hopes. And clearly whatever he was drinking after being substituted at the Amex is the secret to the 25-year-old's success.
. Greenwood heroics As if his early goal and huge part in United's brilliant second-half counter-attacking strike wasn't enough, Greenwood rarely put a foot out of place. Two first half moments summed up his excellent night on the right flank.

Not long after poking home a left-footed effort beyond Matt Ryan in the Seagulls' goal, Greenwood was collecting the ball "on the half-turn" as Gary Neville rightly said on commentary and driving at Brighton. He brilliantly controlled Paul Pogba's pass and fed Wan-Bissaka. Then, he magically kept the ball in play (or not, some suggested) on the right touchline following a Wan-Bissaka block, flicking the ball back into play with his left foot. From there, United passed the ball left and Luke Shaw found himself in the box, before it eventually came back to Pogba who set up Fernandes for the second goal. It all came from Greenwood's quick-thinking.

De Gea saves deserve credit David de Gea received more than his fair share of criticism for his mistake in United's 1-1 draw with Tottenham. Rightly so, many would say, he ought to have saved Steven Bergwijn's shot. But equally, he also deserves credit for his excellent saves to deny Aaron Connolly and Leandro Trossard in the second half at the Amex as Brighton made a recovery of sorts. De Gea's acrobatic goalkeeping ensured United could see the game out in straightforward fashion. Solskjaer has always stood by his keeper and will be delighted.
