Manchester United loses to Brighton in premier league 2022

United slumped to a 2–1 loss against Brighton at Old Trafford on Sunday

Manchester United looked vulnerable in defense—with Pascal Gross scoring twice in the first half to put Brighton in control 

Ten Hag decided to leave Ronaldo out of his starting lineup after the Portugal star only played 45 minutes in preseason  

Robert Sánchez failed to punch away a corner and then got in the way of Alexis Mac Allister, who tried to clear the ball only to send it into his own net.

United continued to push forward but never came close to an equalizer as Brighton  

United improved in the second half, the first 45 minutes  and the club finished sixth in the Premier League last season.

Brighton took the lead in the 30th when Danny Welbeck made a run into the area to collect a pass from Leandro Trossard near the byline.
