Manchester United started the 2022/23 season with a 2-0 defeat at “Old Trafford” against Brighton.
The era of Erik ten Hag at the Red Devils started with a defeat and from now on it has raised many questions about the future of the team this season.
After only half an hour of play, Danny Welbeck assisted Pascal Groos, who made it 1-0.
Only nine minutes passed from the first goal and Groos (39′) also scored the second for his team and the second personally.
With these two goals, the two teams went to the halftime break.
The second 45 minutes brought only one goal, but that was not enough for Manchester United to escape defeat.
It was the 68th minute of the match, when Alexis Mac Allister put the ball into his own net from a corner kick.
Until the end, United struggled to get a point, but Brighton were very well placed in defense, thus taking the full points.
