The Red Devils fail in Ansu Fati’s Premier League debut at home against Brigthon. Welbeck, Groos and Joao Pedro defeated the group led by Erik Ten Hag in the Theater of Dreams. The Spanish striker, on loan from FC Barcelona, played 30 minutes of the game.
Danny Welbeck completed the former’s game after some great play on the right wing where Adam Lallana let a ball pass between his legs for the England striker to score his first goal of the season.
Although the locals began to dominate the chances, Brighton’s intelligent play diluted the Mancunian attack with Rashford’s first free shot just minutes into the game. After Welbeck’s goal, the Seagulls calmed the pace of the game despite Rasmus Hojlund’s disallowed goal.
The walk back from the dressing room began in the same way as kick-off, with a clear scoring opportunity for Marcus Rashford in front of the opposition goal. Immediately, Pascal Gross breaks Lisandro Martínez on the edge of the penalty area with just a slight movement of his hip and thus scores the second goal against Onana. A work of art by the German midfielder in the Theater of Dreams.
In the 64th minute of the game, Ansu Fati took the field at Old Trafford to make his debut as a new Brighton & Hove Albion player. A few minutes later the “Seagulls” sealed the game.
Brazilian winger Joao Pedro used the inside of his right leg to put the third goal on the scoreboard after an assist from Tariq Lamptey.
United youth player Mejbri appeared to close the gap on the scoreboard. The Tunisian player’s goal sent the Red Devils’ stands into a frenzy for just a few minutes, which the visitors managed to alleviate brilliantly.
The striker, on loan from the Culer team, had bankruptcy at Old Trafford at his feet. But a handball from United’s Cameroonian goalkeeper put an end to Ansu Fati’s dream debut.
