The Red Devils came from a 1-0 loss in the first half with Former Manchester United forward Danny Wellbeck who gave Brighton an early lead till Rashford equalizer on the 62nd minute made the home team pressing with Mason Greenwood heading home a mistimed shot from Paul Pogba in the closing minutes to take all the 3 points.
Mason was mature,”Manchester United manager Solskjaer said. ‘Today he was one of our brightest players.
“He was clean, he was tidy and he got the goal. It’s a header inside the six-yard box and that’s what we need more from Mason.
“It’s always difficult to play Brighton. We have had good results and we’ve had to earn them the hard way. We managed to find a way in the second half.”
Former United and England defender Ferdinand added on BT Sport: “They struggled in the first half but they improved and got the job done. It wasn’t perfect but they got the win.
“The goal from Greenwood, that’s a striker’s instinct, this kid is a striker.
“What I was pleased about with Greenwood was his all-round game. His movement and the way he retained possession was great.
‘”He’s making unbelievable runs. He needs to keep making those runs because his teammates will find him eventually.
“For someone so young to be doing that when he’s not in a rich vein of form in terms of goals tells me a lot about him. He’s got the right attitude.”
