Cristiano Ronaldo scores stunner and hands Manchester United 1-0 lead vs Brighton

Manchester United are in front against Brighton and Hove Albion, thanks to a brilliant finish from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Man United needed a David de Gea’s save to hold Brighton to a goalless first half. You can watch his save here.

Early in the second half, Ronaldo picked a loose ball and needed to take matters into his own hands and had a go just outside the penalty box and beat The Seagulls goalie, Sanchez with a brilliant finish.

Manchester United haven’t scored a second half goal since their 1-0 win over West Ham United before the international break.

United 1-0 Brighton.

Shortly after Ronaldo’s opener, Brighton and Hove Albion were reduced to ten men, with Lewis Dunk receiving a straight red card after VAR review.
