“Biggest banter club; Bottling Top 4”- Manchester United brutally trolled on social media over losing PL tie v Brighton after a last-minute penalty

Manchester United succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium courtesy of an Alexis Mac Allister spot kick in the last minute of the game. Luke Shaw will feel frustrated conceding a penalty in the last kick of the game. Both sides started the match well after creating numerous chances right from kickoff. Nevertheless, the Seagulls deserve the win given the fact they dominated the match stats.

Brighton’s European dream remains very much on. Roberto De Zerbi’s side has now taken a huge step towards qualifying for Europe for the first time in their history. United loss shouldn’t cost them their Champions League dreams, though, with enough points already in the bag, so the pain of points dropped tonight should subside quickly enough. The teams were fairly equal in the first half, but Brighton was much the better side in the second.

As for Man United, the defeat means they remain in fourth and four points clear of Liverpool who may challenge them for a Champions League place. This is their third consecutive loss against the same opposition in the Premier League. They face West Ham next and would not want to bottle their chances of maintaining a top-four spot with Liverpool marching as potential competition.

Brighton got their revenge after getting knocked out by the Red Devils in the FA Cup semifinals where they lost on penalties. The battle between Kaoru Mitoma and Aaaron Wan Bissaka was the best highlight as they were the best offensive and defensive respectively. Nevertheless, Marcus Rashford and Antony had some golden chances to equalize and further seal the victory.

Their European aspirations are very much on with their current win taking them to the sixth spot being eligible to qualify for the Europa League. Brighton faces relegation-threatened Everton on Thursday and will hope to keep up the momentum. The Red Devils will hope their latest defeat will not falter the team morale.
