5:18pm: Yellow Card for Lewis Dunk after a foul on James. 5:19pm: GOAL!! McTominay scored. 5:22pm: Brighton are playing out of character. Potter needs to get these boys in and they need to regroup. They can’t seem to pass to each other and they don’t move. The few good plays have all come from Trossard. United, on the other hand, are playing some nice football. They are playing triangles and beautiful link up play. 5:25pm: CORRECTION: Goal was an own goal for Pröpper. 5:26pm: Nice football from Brighton until Montoya played a sloppy ball. 5:27pm: Connolly free kick. Trossard to take. Good ball and Brighton should’ve scored from Duffy. 5:30pm: Yellow Card for Montoya. Lunged at Rashford. Desperate and unnecessary.

5:32pm: First corner for Brighton. Connolly accidentally caught De Gea on the face and play stops to make sure he’s okay.

5:34pm: Free kick after foul on Connolly. Montoya crosses it and Dunk flicks it on to Duffy who heads it down but United got the ball. 5:37pm: Rashford’s down with medical staff now assessing the injury. Although it’s not clear where he sustained the injury. 5:38pm: He’s walking now which is good. 5:41pm: Connolly headed the ball over the bar. 5:42pm: Good defending from Dunk. James crosses it and forces Dunk to clear before it would’ve fallen for Rashford.

5:44pm: Maguire headed it over the bar from the corner.

5:44pm: Yellow Card for Rashford.

5:45pm: 4 minutes added.

6:51pm: Good defending from Duffy after Martial almost slipped through. 6:53pm: McTominay is down and a stretcher is on field. This does not look good for the young lad. 6:54pm: McTominay is back on his feet, hopping slightly but back on his feet. United will have a few seconds with 10 men.
