Brighton crush woeful Manchester United as Red Devils' season suffers new low

Manchester United’s season reached a new nadir losing 4-0 to Brighton at the Amex Stadium, in Ralf Rangnick’s penultimate game in charge of the club.

As bad as United were though, Brighton were terrific and full value for the comprehensive scoreline.

Moises Caicedo opened the scoring after 15 minutes when he drilled a low effort past David De Gea from 25 yards out.

‘We should have tried’ – Rangnick reveals January striker request was rejected

YESTERDAY AT 09:35

It appeared Graham Potter told his side to go for the jugular during the break and they did just that, doubling the lead in the 49th minute when Leandro Trossard pulled back for Marc Cucurella to blast into the roof of the net.

Eight minutes later there was another goal, the pick of the bundle, when Cucurella brought down a fantastic long pass from goalkeeper Robert Sanchez, then found Trossard in the box. He slid a ball through to Pascal Gross who calmly pushed the ball past the sliding Raphael Varane with his right foot, before sliding home with his left.

Unbelievably, the lead was four just before the hour mark when former Red Devil Danny Welbeck lofted a ball over De Gea and Diego Dalot’s goal-line clearance was deflected over the line by Trossard – whose performance certainly deserved a goal.

The result means United will end the season with their worst points tally ever in the Premier League, under the 64 accumulated in 2013-14. They currently have 58, and could yet slip to the seventh place they finished in under David Moyes.

Brighton rise to ninth and look set for the first top-half, top-flight finish in their history.

TALKING POINT – Time for a big gamble?

Brighton owner Tony Bloom made a lot of his fortune from gambling – be it poker or sports betting. His preference for Asian Handicap (where you get back a lesser amount if the preferred result does not eventuate) suggests a man who believes in stealthy accumulation rather than big moves. So it has been at Brighton with the team now set for their best finish in the club’s history. That said, there cannot have been an onlooker this season who pondered what the Seagulls might have achieved with a top striker. The team built by Potter has a central midfield which can mix it with the very best in the Premier league, a well-organised defence and a number of bought-in talented players capable of ensuring the ball spends a lot of time in dangerous areas. They will challenge for one of the two lesser European competitions next year anyway but could seriously contend for a Champions League berth if they can bring a top striker to the Amex Stadium. If the gamble is worth doing at all, surely it would be now.

MAN OF THE MATCH – Leandro Trossard (Brighton)

You could share this award around probably six Brighton players, but the Belgian player was at the hub of so much of their fantastic creative play. This included two assists for the goals, but there were many more fine passages of play where he helped forge opportunities for his team. As much talent as Belgium have he will not look out of place alongside them in the World Cup at the end of the year.

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

15′ GOAL FOR BRIGHTON! Gross had a shot blocked on the edge of the box and it fell 25 yards out to Caicedo who drilled a low dart into the corner beating De Gea.

42′ BIG MISS FROM WELBECK! Varane lost a long kick from Sanchez in flight and mis-controlled feeding Welbeck just outside the area and only requiring him to lob De Gea to score but he shins the ball and it goes high and wide.

49′ GOAL FOR BRIGHTON! Trossard pulls back to Cucurella from the by-line and the defender slammed the ball high into the roof of the net giving De Gea little chance.

58′ GOAL FOR BRIGHTON! Brilliant football. Cucurella raced down the left and fed a ball into Trossard who then slid through to Gross who danced around Varane and slid a ball past De Gea to make it three.

59′ GOAL FOR BRIGHTON! It’s four! What a night for Brighton. The first home win of the year was worth the wait. Welbeck lifted the ball over the ‘keeper and though Dalot cleared the ball off the line it hit Trossard before going into the net. They are now checking for VAR.

65′ OFF THE POST! The United defence is ridiculously open. Mac Allister puts through Gross who returns a ball to create an open goal for the Argentine but Dalot gets back to clear the ball against the post and out.

KEY STATS

  • 120 – The number of years in which Brighton have failed to finish in the top half of the top-flight.

Caroline Weir, Alex Greenwood and Lauren Hemp were also on the scoresheet for Gareth Taylor’s side.

Khadija Shaw scored four as Manchester City thrashed Brighton to climb into third spot in the Women’s Super League for the first time this season.

It took the Citizens only four minutes to open the scoring, Shaw firing a low shot into the corner before she doubled her tally following a smart turn, and Caroline Weir made it 3-0 with just 16 minutes on the clock.

4 HOURS AGO

Inessa Kaagman reduced the deficit from the penalty spot and Julia Zigiotti’s first-time finish on the stroke of half-time gave Brighton renewed hope.

But three goals in 10 second-half minutes saw City deservedly pull clear. Shaw put daylight between the teams with a fine individual goal on the break and she completed her hat-trick from an excellent Lauren Hemp assist.

Alex Greenwood’s header made it six but there was still time for Hemp to cap a superb performance with a goal of her own, as City leapfrogged rivals Manchester United into third as the WSL enters the final week of the season.

United have the chance to move back above City on Sunday when they host West Ham, however they will have played one game more, with Gareth Taylor’s side hosting Birmingham on Wednesday ahead of the final round of fixtures.

Burnley move out of relegation zone after crucial win over Wolves

Burnley secured a hugely significant 1-0 win over Wolves at Turf Moor that took them out of the Premier League relegation zone.

It was a result that will have sent shockwaves towards Goodison Park, as it plunged Everton into the bottom three just before they were due to take on Liverpool at Anfield.

Burnley’s match-winner was Matej Vydra, who got on the end of Wout Weghorst’s cross in the 62nd-minute to spark wild celebrations among the home contingent, not least Mike Jackson whose interim leadership is threatening to keep the Clarets in the top flight.

Newcastle’s Wood transfer is deeply cynical, and all the better for it

13/01/2022 AT 12:24

Wolves huffed and puffed in search of an equaliser but in truth didn’t create much, with their best chances coming either side of half-time when it remained goalless.

The result meant that Burnley have now won three consecutive Premier League matches at Turf Moor for the first time since January 2017, and their fans broke into a chant of “we’re staying up” at the final whistle.

Speaking to Sky Sports in the immediate aftermath, match-winner Vydra said: “The last 10 minutes, I was so nervous. I was counting the minutes and praying we could bring the three points home.

“I think we struggled in our defensive shape first half because they played three or five at the back.

“I swapped position with Jay [Rodriguez] after starting on the left and my target was to put pressure on [Willy] Boly.

“My first [goal of the season] was Chelsea away, it was an important goal. This one is even more important, but it doesn’t matter who scores, we need to be one goal ahead of the opposition and to take three points.

“We are so happy today.”

In the South-Coast derby between Brighton and Southampton, the spoils were shared 2-2.

Danny Welbeck opened the scoring after just two minutes at the Amex Stadium, and when Saints defender Mo Salisu turned into his own net, Brighton looked set for a routine home win.

But James Ward-Prowse had other ideas, scoring a fine free kick in first-half stoppage time to reduce the arrears, before lashing past Robert Sanchez early in the second period to give his side their point.

ManCity antwortet Liverpool und ist wieder an der Spitze

Nach dem 4:0 von Liverpool am Vorabend stand Manchester City gegen Brighton unter Zugzwang. Gegen chancenlose Seagulls gewann die Guardiola-Elf verdient mit 3:0 und eroberte sich die Tabellenführung zurück.

Torschützen unter sich: Phil Foden (li.) und Bernardo Silva erzielten das zweite und dritte Tor des Abends.

IMAGO/PA Images

Nach zuletzt drei Spielen ohne Sieg in Folge und der 2:3-Niederlage im Halbfinale des FA-Cups rotierte Pep Guardiola in seiner Anfangself ordentlich durch: Hinten ersetzte Laporte Zinchenko, dafür rückte Aké auf die defensive Außenbahn. Auf der Sechs spielten Gündogan und Rodrigo anstelle von Fernandinho. Vorne kamen De Bruyne und Mahrez neu ins Team – Gabriel Jesus, Grealish und Sterling saßen erstmal auf der Bank.

Die Citizens, durch den Sieg des LFC am Vorabend gegen Manchester United unter Zugzwang, taten sich in den ersten Minuten trotz neuer Offensivleute schwer. Die Seagulls standen dicht gestaffelt in der eigenen Hälfte und ließen wenig zu. Einzig Sanchez’ missratener Querpass hätte Mahrez eine gute Torchance ermöglicht, doch der Algerier überlegte zu lange und verspielte so die gute Möglichkeit (16.).

Stattdessen entstanden halb verzweifelte Versuche aus der Distanz, die im Falle von Cancelo eher schlecht gelangen (25.) oder bei De Bruyne nur knapp vorbeirauschten (26.). Alles in allem aber war es ein ideenloser Auftritt des himmelblauen Star-Ensembles, das immer wieder auch zu statisch wirkte.

Mahrez eröffnet, Foden und Bernardo Silva erhöhen

Im zweiten Durchgang aber sollte sich das dann ändern. Schon nach acht Minuten klingelte es das erste Mal, nachdem Mac Allister in Citys Hälfte den Ball verlor und die Hausherren über De Bruyne schnell schalteten. Letztlich hatte Mahrez zwar etwas Glück bei seinem Abschluss, doch der Ball flog über Sanchez ins Netz (53.). Zu diesem Zeitpunkt war City wieder mit einem Zähler Vorsprung an der Tabellenspitze.

Den knappen Sieg brachten die Citizens aber selbstverständlich nicht einfach über die Zeit. Foden erzielte nach einer kurzen Ecke per abgefälschtem Schuss das 2:0 (65.), ehe Bernardo Silva in der Schlussphase nach dem zweiten Assist von De Bruyne den Deckel draufmachte (82.).

Eckenverhältnis

7:4

Das 3:0 ging völlig in Ordnung – Brighton hatte mit nur zwei Torschüssen wenig vom Spiel. Der Sieg verhalf ManCity zur wiedererlangten Tabellenführung. Weiter geht es für beide Teams am Wochenende: City empfängt am Samstag (16 Uhr) Watford, die Seagulls am Sonntag (15 Uhr) Southampton.

La insistencia de De Bruyne devuelve el liderato al City

Ahora tú, ahora yo. Parece que será esta la historia que se repita en la cima de la clasificación de aquí a final de temporada. Dos equipos, Manchester City y Liverpool, que están no uno, sino dos o tres peldaños por encima del resto. Dos equipos separados por un solo punto tras la victoria de los de Guardiola ante el Brighton, y después de que los de Klopp hicieran lo propio frente al Manchester United el martes. Arrancó bien el City, dominando y encerrando al Brighton en su campo. Aunque sin incomodarlo demasiado. Todo en orden. Unos, los locales tenían la pelota y generaban ocasiones. Los otros, los visitantes, viéndolas venir. Pero sin pasar demasiados apuros. Sobreviviendo. Como hicieron en el norte de Londres antes de sorprender a Arsenal y a Tottenham, en las últimas jornadas. Trataron de dar un paso adelante a la media hora de juego, estirando líneas y combinando hasta la frontal de Ederson, pero solo ofrecieron espacios para las carreras de los celestes.

Kevin De Bruyne regresó a la titularidad para disputar su partido 300 con el Manchester City. Fue suplente en la semifinal de la FA Cup. No llegó al choque contra el Liverpool, acusando las molestias en el tobillo que le forzaron a ser sustituido en el Metropolitano la semana pasada en Champions. Ante el Brighton se desquitó. No quedan dudas sobre el estado físico del belga. Después del aluvión local en los primeros minutos de la reanudación, Kevin generó el primer gol. Recibió el premio a su insistencia. Arrancó en el centro del campo. Imparable. Ni echándose encima suyo lograron pagarle los zagueros rivales. Un rebote en Cucurella deja a Mahrez solo frente a Robert Sánchez. Otro rebote, cuando disparó el argelino, desvió la pelota del alcance del meta cartaginense. Abierta la lata, al Brighton se le hizo de noche. Foden consiguió otro gol tras otro rebote, y Bernardo cerró la cuenta en los últimos minutos. En una jugada en la que Zinchenko, De Bruyne y el portugués conectaron a un toque cada uno para certificar, por si no estuviera claro, el triunfo del City, el líder.

El Newcastle sigue sumando

Por si quedaban dudas, el nuevo súperproyecto de la Premier League ha certificado una temporada más su continuidad en la competición tras ganar al Crystal Palace. La segunda vuelta ha supuesto una auténtica revolución, pese a temer en la primera por la pérdida de la categoría. Almirón, a la media hora, hizo el único tanto del partido asistido por Bruno Guimaraes. En el otro partido de la jornada, Richarlison salvó un punto sobre la campana para el Everton, que vuelve a ganar algo de oxígeno para con la zona del descenso. El Leicester, centrado en la Conference League, sigue lejos de los puestos europeos. El gol de Harvey Barnes prometía una tarde tranquila, pero acabaron cediendo el triunfo sobre la campana.

City battle past Brighton to reclaim Premier League top spot

Manchester City beat a resolute Brighton side 3-0 to move back to the top of the Premier League table.

Pep Guardiola’s side were frustrated by Brighton’s defensive shape for much of the opening for 45 minutes and struggled to create chances.

The best opportunity fell to Riyad Mahrez after a poor Robert Sanchez clearance but the Algerian took too long on the ball and was tackled.

‘No answer’ – Guardiola refuses to discuss Haaland transfer talk

YESTERDAY AT 16:37

The hosts improved after the break and Kevin De Bruyne drove through the midfield avoiding challenges eventually poking it through for Mahrez who finished to put City one up.

City settled any nerves when Phil Foden’s shot took a huge deflection off Enock Mwepu completely wrong footing Sanchez putting them two goals to the good.

They wrapped it up when Bernardo Silva curled in a brilliant third.

It secured a huge three points for the current champions as they responded well to falling behind Liverpool in the title race after their 4-0 demolition of Man United last night.

The pressure was firmly on City but they didn’t crack despite tension in the crowd after a below par start to the game. However, once City got one goal the result was never in doubt.

Brighton will be disappointed at the score line as they performed well and will deem themselves as unlucky as both the hosts first two goals took deflections.

TALKING POINT – CITY BACK IN CHARGE OF TITLE RACE

The eyes of the world were on Guardiola’s men and Liverpool fans became Brighton supporters for the evening. The Seagulls had a great record away from home (the 6th best in the league prior to the match) and it was definitely a potential banana skin for Man City. But as all great teams do, they found a way to not just win but win comfortably and net three times to make the victory look very convincing.

Next up in the Premier League, City face Watford, Leeds and Newcastle with the huge Champions League semi-finla tie versus Real Madrid in there too.

For Liverpool it’s rivals Everton, Newcastle and Tottenham with their Champions League semi-final against Villarreal in the mix also.

This title race will go right down to the wire and can still go either way but neither side is showing any signs that they will drop points. City are one point ahead, could that be all it takes to seperate them.

MAN OF THE MATCH – Kevin De Bruyne

He turned on the style when his team needed him most. City were struggling to break down Brighton but when he picked up the ball on the half turn and drove at the visitors’ back line there was no stopping him as he pushed challenges aside. The goal he created was crucial in giving his team control of the match and stopping panic setting in.

His fantastic assist for the third goal by Silva topped of a vintage De Bruyne display.

MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

16’ – BIG CHANCE: Sanchez tries to play out from the back and Mahrez intercepts it and has time on the ball in front of goal but he doesn’t pass or shoot. Eventually Caicedo gets back and tackles him. City don’t take their gift.

53’ – GOAL: They finally break the deadlock and it’s Mahrez! De Bruyne charges through on the counter attack shrugging off defenders and he pokes it through to Mahrez. He shoots and it hits Veltman who is sliding in to block the shot and it loopes over Sanchez.

65′ – GOAL: Foden scores but it takes a huge deflection off Mwepu. It’s a short corner to the edge of the box and Foden strikes – it’s not a great shot but it wrong foots Sanchez after it comes off Mwepu’s foot as he tries to block. A big slice of luck.

82′ – GOAL: Brighton try to play out and Zinchenko intercepts and it finds De Bruyne who flicks it to Silva. He strikes the ball first time and curls it into the net. Great finish.
