Premier League – Manchester United were an embarrassment



Premier League – Brighton & Hove Albion took revenge on Manchester United and scored four goals. Rangnick’s team rounded off one of the worst seasons in its history and is already mathematically out of Champions League 2022-23. Cristiano Ronaldo will not play in the tournament he loves the most and there is already speculation about his departure.

Manchester United put the finishing touch to one of the worst seasons in living memory at Old Trafford. And it was in the worst possible way. The painful defeat against Brighton by 4-0 ended the few options they had to qualify for the Champions League.

The Red Devils have now lost five consecutive away defeats. And they once again played a horrible game. We had to wait until the hour mark to see Manchester United’s first shot on goal.

A team made for embarrassment

Brighton, who had not known what it was like to win at their home stadium in 2022, took the lead after 15 minutes through Moises Caicedo. The Ecuadorian picked up a rebound on the edge of the area and beat De Gea with a shot that went through the legs of McTominay and Lindelöf. It was the first goal of his Premier League career.

The 2-0 came in the 49th minute, just after the break, from Marc Cucurella. Trossard gave back and the former Barcelona, Eibar and Getafe connected a missile to the top corner. He celebrated in style, even with tears. It was no wonder: Cucurella, like Caicedo, made his debut as a Premier League goalscorer. The perfect finishing touch to a great individual season.

Brighton, who were the lowest-scoring team at home with 12 goals, extended the lead in the 57th minute thanks to their goalkeeper. Robert Sanchez set up Cucurella for a 70-yard delivery, and Gross finished to score off a pass from Trossard. Everyone, however, ran to embrace Sanchez.

The icing on the cake came three minutes later to the despair of Cristiano Ronaldo. Welbeck’s shot was headed over the top by De Gea, only for Trossard to push it over the line. There could have been a handball in the challenge for Dalot. But the VAR did not detect it.

Between the post and Dalot himself prevented another goal after a superb Mac Allister counter-attack. Welbeck also had a chance late on with a shot from the edge of the area that went just wide of De Gea’s right-hand post. It could have been an even worse thrashing.

Cristiano will not be Mr. Champions

With this result, Manchester United can no longer reach the Champions League places. And will have to settle for the Europa League next season. At least for the time being and if they are not reached by West Ham.

Thus, Cristiano Ronaldo, winner of 5 Champions League, will not be able to be in the tournament that most welcomed him in his life. Although the international press is already speculating about his departure from Manchester United.
