Paul Scholes Gives Honest Verdict On Manchester United's Win Against Brighton

Fernandes then curled a free kick over the bar before turning home the second goal from the edge of the box in the 29th minute after being teed up by Paul Pogba.

Bruno Fernandes volley. Two nil.

"That's what I've done all my life more or less, working in football, and sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't".

Albion may have had one eye on what should be easier pickings on Saturday when they play Norwich City.

Fernandes, as TUKO.co.ke reported was in typical scintillating form as his brace along with a Mason Greenwood goal helped keep the Red Devils' hopes for a top-four finish alive.

"It's not important if it's complete or not, what is important is the three points", he told Sky Sports.

Fernandes' second goal was a particularly spectacular counter-attack and was something that the manager also commented on, "His second goal was good defending on a set-play and we know we've got pace and we wanted to counter quickly".

Pundits around the world again hyped the Bruno- Pogba partnership but the Portuguese came back with a brilliant response, "Paul is an unbelievable player but I don't want to talk too much about me and Paul because it's not fair on the other teammates".

That is 30 percent higher than the peak of 34,203 on April 25, the peak day in the original surge of covid cases this spring. Redfield predicted a "difficult" fall and winter, saying Americans must be convinced to get flu vaccines .

United is also looking more solid at the back with eight clean sheets in its last 13 league matches. After that strike, Neville suggested the 19-year-old was on his way to cementing his spot in the side. Cutting in from the right, Greenwood froze Lewis Dunk with a nimble step-over and drilled a low shot past Brighton keeper Mat Ryan.

Scholes did it so much so that Jose Mourinho got annoyed with the club's former players, feeling as though they were trying to get him fired.

"He's still only 18 so we will see more from him".

The breakthrough came in 16th minute as a result of individual brilliance from Mason Greenwood.

United's goal against Brighton was similarly impressive.

Looked solid in defence and made a few runs into the forward areas from the left-back position.

Nemanja Matic's cross-field pass sent Greenwood sprinting away down the left and the teenager unfurled a ideal cross for Fernandes to volley past Ryan from 12 yards.
