While their title rivals had to settle for draws last night, Manchester United managed to keep pace with their noisy neighbours after a win over Brighton last night.
Taking all points from oppositions at home when not exactly playing their best football is the hallmark of potential champions and that is exactly what Mourinho’s men did at old Trafford.
With Brighton starting the game brightly, the Red Devils were left on the back foot and it was only after midway through the first half that they managed to regain some control.
After the break however, United started to create more chances and were deserving of their fortuitous goal.
With the game set to be decided by Young’s deflected strike, United’s Swedish talisman took it upon himself to add his magic to the game.
With just one minute of regulation time left on the clock, the Swede made a delightful one-two exchange with Pogba that left the Brighton defence dumbstruck before unleashing a low shot that narrowly missed the target.
While Zlatan was unlucky not to have scored what would have been one of the goals of the season, fans were delighted to see see the striker’s impetus after making his return from a career threatening injury last week.
