Portuguese fires brace while Greenwood scores one and sets up another in impressive 3-0 win at Brighton & Hove Albion

Manchester United extended their unbeaten run to eight Premier League matches with a comprehensive 3-0 victory at Brighton & Hove Albion.

Bruno Fernandes had already hit a post with a well-struck shot before Mason Greenwood's smart low finish on 16 minutes.

Paul Pogba then set up Fernandes, whose deflected shot found the corner to make it 2-0 on 29 minutes, during a first half dominated by Man Utd.

The Seagulls pushed on after the break but were undone by a sweeping counter-attack in which Fernandes volleyed home Greenwood's floated cross.
