Brighton and Hove Albion goalkeeper Jason Steele has admitted his team were surprised by how Manchester United started during their defeat at Old Trafford.
Manchester United started off well in front of their home fans and were piling on the pressure from the outset. However, against the run of play they found themselves behind.

Manchester United’s new number 9 thought he had equalized just before the break, but VAR overruled the strike after adjudging the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.
The Seagulls exploited their favorable luck and multiplied their lead through Pascal Gross under ten minutes after the break. At the point when Joao Pedro made it three on 71 minutes the game was over as a challenge.
There was one motivation to grin however when Hannibal Mejbri scored his most memorable objective for the Reds with a long-range exertion yet protecting any of the points was sufficiently not. After the full-time whistle, Steele asserted Brighton found opportunity to adjust to Joined’s style yet felt they merited the success.
Addressing Chief Association Creations, he said: “It feels perfect. An incredible success. Away at Old Trafford, it is an astonishing inclination.
“We merited it as well, we played with boldness, with a major heart and most certainly had the right to win. We need to play on the front foot, forceful, Joined played a piece different to what we expected, so we needed to will grasps with that. In any case, following 10-15 minutes we settled down and got a traction in the game.”
