Brighton & Hove Albion scored three first-half goals to stun Manchester United 3-2 for their first win of the season.

Glenn Murray opened the scoring for Brighton on 25 minutes, flicking the ball over David De Gea from Solly March's left-wing cross.

Two minutes later, Shane Duffy converted Anthony Knockaert's pass after United had failed to clear a corner.

Romelu Lukaku's header halved the deficit, but Pascal Gross restored Brighton's two-goal lead with a penalty before the break.

Paul Pogba got a goal back for United with a stoppage-time penalty but it was too late to prevent defeat.
