Ed Woodward’s face during Manchester United defeat against Brighton says it all…
A 3-2 defeat away to Brighton inflicted in Manchester United’s first defeat of the 2018/19 Premier League season, in just their second league game of the season.
Brighton raced to a two-goal first half lead before Romelu Lukaku pulling one back before the break for United.
However, Brighton got their 3rd of the game when Pascal Gross converted a 44th minute penalty. Paul Pogba bagged a late consolation from the spot but it wasn’t enough to see Manchester United avoid defeat.
As Manchester United plodded around looking dead and buried, the Sky cameras panned to the crowd where Woodward cut a lonely and dejected figure.
United’s shocking defensive performance led to fans taking aim at the chief executive for his lack of transfers in the summer window and who can blame them?
