United's 3-1 victory moves them to seventh in the Premier League table, while Brighton have dropped to 11th place.

United's win, which took them to within a point of the top five in the Premier League, came courtesy of goals from Andreas Pereira and Marcus Rashford and a Davy Propper own goal.

McTominay also limped off during Thursday's 3-0 defeat of Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday before being given the nod to face Brighton.

"You can go back to the Chelsea game, but today the reaction after they scored was fantastic and sometimes this season, when you get one or 2-0 up and go for the next one, how we didn't end up five, six, or seven we don't know". The Norwegian alluded to this, adding: "These six weeks since the worldwide break when we started against Liverpool we've had five wins and a defeat, after the Liverpool game".

"The table does not really matter at the moment: we need to keep improving and keep winning games and see where it takes us".

Yeah, I think it's our best performance of the season.

United's front three of Rashford, Anthony Martial and Daniel James were too good for Brighton while 19-year-old left-back Brandon Williams, making his first Premier League start, was given a standing ovation by the Old Trafford crowd after being substituted in the final minutes.

The Manchester United vs Brighton Premier League match will be played on November 10, 2019.

"These are young boys, there are going to be ups and downs", said Solskjaer.

"He's in for a scan tomorrow... but it looked painful and he's not one for rolling around".

"We tried but we didn't play as well, the level we can play at, but we have to credit the opposition as well, so a bit of both".
