Premier League's Goal Accreditation Appeals Panel amends Davy Propper own goal to strike by Manchester United midfielder

Manchester United's second goal against Brighton & Hove Albion last Sunday has been awarded to Scott McTominay following an appeal.

Man Utd ran out 3-1 winners over the Seagulls at Old Trafford but the goal to give them a 2-0 lead was originally adjudged to be an own goal by Brighton's Davy Propper.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have successfully appealed the decision, and the goal has been attributed instead to McTominay following a decision by the Premier League’s Goal Accreditation Appeals Panel.

The three-person panel reached their verdict after reviewing the match footage.

McTominay now boasts three Premier League goals for the season, one more than he scored in total last term.
