Manchester United were dramatic 3-2 winners away to Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday lunchtime.
Bruno Fernandes scored a penalty in the 100th minute, after the referee had blown the final whistle.
That’s because Chris Kavanagh had been alerted by VAR that Neal Maupay had handled Harry Maguire’s effort on the goalline that went unnoticed by the on-field official.
Our winner came five minutes after Solly March appeared to have rescued a stoppage time point for the Seagulls.
In an eventful game that saw Manchester United have two goals chalked out and Brighton one themselves, the hosts took the lead in the 40th minute through a Neal Maupay penalty after Tariq Lamptey was tripped in the box by Bruno Fernandes.
We weren’t behind for long as the Portuguese ace provided the free kick which was eventually turned into his own net by Lewis Dunk.
Bruno then played a fantastic through ball to Marcus Rashford, whom twisted in and out before firing a deflected effort into the top corner to give us a 2-1 lead 10 minutes after the break.
We sat back the further the game went on and Brighton ended up hitting the frame of the goal five times throughout the match before Solly March was left free at the back post to head home in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
A corner at the other end saw Harry Maguire’s header deflect off the outstretched arm of Neal Maupay before March headed it off the line.
Chris Kavanagh then blew the full-time whistle before our players informed him of a potential handball. Eventually he was buzzed by the Video Assistant to check out the monitor, which led to the correct decision – a Manchester United penalty.
Bruno Fernandes kept his composure and converted our winner into the top corner of Mat Ryan’s goal.
