Brighton & Hove Albion made certain of another season of Premier League football thanks to a famous 1-0 victory over a below-par Manchester United at the Amex Stadium. The win means that the Seagulls reached the 40-point mark in the table and safety.
With third bottom Southampton and 17-placed Swansea to meet on Tuesday, Brighton now can't now be relegated. So pleased for Chris Hughton. The Seagulls could still finish in the top-ten, although they are now outsiders to clinch a top-half spot this season.
The visitors did have the ball in the net after just four minutes when Marouanne Fellaini turned Rashford's free-kick in from close range, but the Belgian was rightly flagged for offside.
"I told the players before the match what was going to happen".
The risky Jose Izquierdo got to the by-line and when his cross was parried by De Gea, the ball crossed the line from Gross's header by the finest of margins before being hooked clear by Marcus Rojo.
The home side came close to doubling their lead through Izquierdo, whose effort went just past the far post.
The German forward got on the end of a sharp Jose Izquierdo cross from the left and the ball crossed the line before Marcus Rojo's desperate attempt to keep it out. Martial was also involved in creating an opportunity for substitute Jesse Lingard, after a nice one-two with the latter miscuing an effort on goal.
"It's a special place already here and they've already had great times".
That's according to former Red Devils defender Paul Parker.
Jose Mourinho's side are nearly certain to finish second in the league table, but the manager was still frustrated with the disappointing display from his players at the Amex.
Neville believes United performance yesterday proved that several players of the squad have stopped playing for their manager. "Brilliant achievement to stay in the @OfficialFPL in their first season massive Congratulations!"
After a shaky begin to the season, beating West Brom was what sparked them into life, in accordance with Knockaert.
