Chris Hughton disappointment with manner of goals Brighton conceded at Man Utd

Chris Hughton disappointment with manner of goals Brighton conceded at Man Utd

"It was backs to the wall when they scored but we still created chances and we are delighted with that win".

"I want players to be confident but not be complacent and take their foot off the pedal because that's a big difference for me".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed what he told Marcus Rashford when he met the England forward for the first time as Manchester United caretaker boss.

And when he was asked if he thought Rashford was now the best centre-forward in the division, Solskjaer said: "You can argue for many strikers but I'm glad he's in my team".

"Solskjaer did change it, but they could have lost that game four or five-one".

The victory came exactly one month to the day since Solskjaer, who won numerous honours as a player at Old Trafford, was brought back to the club to be the interim manager until the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

And welcome to our liveblog for Ole Solskjaer's flying Man Utd vs Chris Hughton's incredibly organised Brighton.

"We made it more hard than it should have been the last 20 minutes, because up until then I thought we played some great stuff at times", said Solskjaer. I've never ever bothered about these things.

Pascal Gross pulled one back for Brighton, but United claimed the three points to move into fifth, above Arsenal, ahead of the Gunners' home game with fourth-placed Chelsea later on Sunday.

Scroll down to read what Solskjaer had to say to MUTV as well as to reporters in his press conference.

In the final few games under Mourinho, Pogba was left out of the starting XI for Premier League matches, and did not play at all in the manager's final game - a 3-1 defeat to rivals Liverpool.

"I think it wasn't nice watching Manchester United over the a year ago and knowing the players weren't happy, they weren't enjoying it and I think all he's done is say "go and play, go and express yourselves, and enjoy it", he added.

"But then you know you're not going to get so many moments and in those moments you have to show quality, and we probably just lacked enough".
