Manchester United lost 1-0 at Brighton as Luke Shaw’s stoppage-time handball allowed Alexis Mac Allister to win it from the penalty spot. The game was played at the Amex Stadium and was part of the Premier League season. The match was played on May 4th, 2023.
The game started with both teams playing well and creating chances. However, neither team was able to score in the first half. In the second half, Manchester United started to dominate the game and created several chances. However, they were unable to convert any of them into goals.
Brighton also had their chances but were unable to score until the very end of the game. In the 99th minute of the game, Luke Shaw made a mistake by handling the ball inside the box. This resulted in a penalty for Brighton which was converted by Alexis Mac Allister.
After the game, Erik ten Hag and Luke Shaw bemoaned missed chances. They felt that Manchester United should have won the game but were let down by their finishing. Roberto De Zerbi argued that the win was deserved and that Brighton played well throughout the game.
For their head coach De Zerbi, this win was particularly satisfying given that they lost the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United on penalties just last month.
