GOAL! Man United 1-1 Brighton | Marcus Rashford, 61 mins
United are level!
Out of nothing, we’re all square. Brighton concede possession high up to, of all people, Bruno Fernandes, who slips in Rashford for a lovely finish across Sanchez.
Fernandes was wiped out in the build-up and is not happy with the challenge, but United are back in this.
United currently sit second in the Premier League table, while top-four rivals Leicester City (third) and Chelsea (fourth) both lost this weekend to offer the Red Devils the chance to capitalise.
With Tottenham also drawing to miss the chance to go fourth, United could go 11 points clear of fifth-placed Liverpool if they beat Graham Potter’s Seagulls at the Theatre of Dreams.
