And it was Paul Pogba who opened up the account in front of the 74,000 fans in attendance at Old Trafford.

The Frenchman was brought down in the first half and awarded a penalty which he proceeded to convert himself and take the lead to 1-0, in favour of the home team.

Marcus Rashford made sure his name appeared on the score-sheet with second shortly after in the first half, with a pinpoint strike that whizzed past David Button to find the back of the net.

It looked like another good night and a clean-sheet for the Norwegian interim manager but only before Pascal Grob leaped forth and registered Brighton's only goal in the 72nd minute.

However Manchester United held on and extended their unbeaten run which now places them above Arsenal with 44 points prior to the Gunners squaring it out with Chelsea.
