The World Cup victor was named in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's starting XI for the trip to the south coast following his promising performance in Manchester United's 3-0 win against Sheffield United last week.

It's tough to make expectations so high so early on, yet everything we have seen of this young lad so far convinces us he is a special player, and destined for the very top. Proving him correct, the game saw Pogba and Fernandes play in sync as Man Utd defeated Brighton 3-0 and clinched three crucial points in the 2019-20 Premier League. "I'd have been proud of that goal".

When Greenwood broke onto the scene at the start of the season, few would have expected him to get as many starts, or goals, as he has in his first full season in the senior side. "He's developing into a fine player and he's a special finisher, a special kid in and around the box and he's one of the better ones I've seen to be fair". "It's gone from watching a little bit of a tiresome team, to one player coming in and all of a sudden they look like they're going to create, they look like they're going to score goals every time he's in possession of the ball".

Former defender Patrice Evra has insisted that Paul Pogba needed a "big player" like Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United to ease the burden on his shoulders.

"Well then.I think we have a football team", he wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of Bruno Fernandes celebrating his second goal of the game.

As well as praising individuals, Solskjaer finished by praising the team as a whole.

"We always look at ourselves to try and improve and they are as good as anyone we have played this year". We can combine together, we have qualities, but we know that we have teammates who can do well. "We defend from the front". Gomes, who joined the United academy as a six-year-old, left Manchester United after his contract expired on Tuesday.
