GOAL! MANCHESTER UNITED 1 (MAC ALLISTER O.G. 68) BRIGHTON 2
The corner is whipped to the back post, where Sanchez flaps and the ball hits Dalot and rolls down his body and towards goal. Mac Allister and Sanchez play the ball off each other when trying to hack it clear, and it trickles over the line! After a long VAR review, it stands.
67'
GOOD SAVE!
United finally force a save from Sanchez, from a fizzing low drive by Eriksen that's deflected. Veltman puts the rebound behind with Ronaldo lurking.
65'
CHANCE!
It falls to Rashford again, as Fernandes whips a cross to the back post. Rashford connects on the volley, but it's high and wide.
64'
BACK FOUR
There's been an in-game switch from Brighton, who have dropped March to left back and are playing an orthodox back line now. Their midfield, which has been superb when they've had possession, indulde in a spot of keepball.
62'
BRIGHTON CORNER
Trossard, who has been excellent today, forces Dalot to concede a corner.
60'
GREAT SAVE!
United spring Ronaldo down the right. He squares it to an open Rashford in the box, who must score but is denied by a sprawling block from Sanchez! The flag then goes up but looking at the replays, Ronaldo was onside when he went through and it would have counted.
