Manchester United vs Brighton LIVE: Latest score, goals and updates from Premier League fixture today

Manchester United host Brighton and Hove Albion looking to bounce back from defeat to Bournemouth last weekend. 

Since then United ripped apart Partizan Belgrade to put some much-needed smiles back on faces around Old Trafford, but a slip-up here will see any top-four hopes drift further into the distance and leave a bitter taste during the international break.

Brighton have shown encouraging signs under the stewardship of Graham Potter and have already taken one big scalp this season in Tottenham, so can they claim another today? Find out below:

We're 30 minutes away from the big game of the weekend. Liverpool vs Man City. Jurgen Klopp vs Pep Guardiola.

Manchester City have arrived at Anfield, to red flares and jeering Liverpool fans.


Man Utd 3 - 1 Brighton

90+6 mins: The full time whistle is blown and Man Utd have done it. They claim the three points and move up to seventh in the table. One point behind Arsenal.

90+3 mins: Marcus Rashford will be disappointed with his day. He's been brilliant but could have had a hat trick. 

Solly March catches Scott McTominay off the ball and looks to have done a number on him. The stretcher has come onto the pitch and there are a lot of medical staff around him. He gets to his feet and hobbles off the pitch. 

That could be a big blow to Man Utd going forward.
