  • GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS

    No doubt you have woken up with a smile on your face after last night's impressive win over Brighton.

    But fans were left fuming after VAR failed to intervene and disallow Bruno Fernandes' strike for the Red Devils.

    Two incidents were up for debate after the ball appeared to go out of play in the build-up to United's second goal.

    Moments later, Luke Shaw was fed a pass down the left before he whipped the ball into the box.

    But the left-back's leg looked to be clearly offside when the ball was played through – but the goal was allowed.

    Meanwhile, Mason Greenwood's goal for United means he has scored more times than Marcus Rashford did before turning 19.

    The teenager now has 13 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils after breaking into the senior side last season.

    In other news, Gary Neville has finally come out of “hiding” and broken his silence following Liverpool's title triumph.

    He said: “It's an incredible achievement to win any title. It's been coming for a couple of years, they've been knocking on the door.

    “Last season, with what Manchester City, they had to be at their absolute best.

    “Jurgen Klopp, the job he's done has been absolutely fantastic.

    “I thought when he came to Liverpool four years ago, it would be almost impossible for him to deliver a title without the spending power of City, United and Chelsea.”

  • GREEN DREAM

    Mason Greenwood's goal against Brighton means he has scored more times than Marcus Rashford did before turning 19.

    He fired home a sumptuous left-footed shot against the Seagulls in their own back yard on Tuesday night to give top-four chasers United a well-deserved lead.

    The teenager now has 13 goals in all competitions for the Red Devils after breaking into the senior side last season.

    That’s one more goal than 22-year-old Rashford achieved before he turned 19.

  • 'CORRUPT'

    Fans were left fuming after VAR failed to intervene and disallow Bruno Fernandes’ goal for Manchester United.

    Not one but TWO incidents were up for debate – but not according to the match officials.

    Firstly, the ball appeared to be out of play in the build-to United’s second goal of the game to put them 2-0 up against Brighton.

    Mason Greenwood controlled it out on the touchline, but images and replays appeared to show the ball was over the line.

    And then moments later Luke Shaw was fed a pass down the left into the box which he crossed through the box leading to the Portuguese star eventually getting it and finishing.

    But the left-back’s leg looked to be clearly offside – but still those managing VAR failed to intervene.

  • WHAM BAM CAM

    Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has penned a farewell note to Manchester United.

    But the defender admits his time at Old Trafford “revealed truths in football most won’t see.”

    Borthwick-Jackson wrote: “After 17 years at the club, it’s time for me to leave Manchester United.

    “Growing up as kid from Manchester, all I wanted to do was play for United.

    “To make my debut for the club I grew up supporting was a dream come true and a day that will stay in my heart forever.

    “I’ve had some great experiences, made some great friends and had the opportunity to play with/against great players.”

  • 'ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC'

    Gary Neville has finally broken his silence following Liverpool's Premier League title win.

    He said: “It's an incredible achievement to win any title.

    “It's been coming for a couple of years, they've been knocking on the door.

    “Last season, with what Manchester City did, they had to be at their absolute best.

    “Jurgen Klopp, the job he's done has been absolutely fantastic.

    “I thought when he came to Liverpool four years ago, it would be almost impossible for him to deliver a title with the spending power of City, United and Chelsea.”

  • NOT HAPPY EVRA AFTER

    Patrice Evra has claimed Manchester United's current squad are not capable of winning the title.

    Speaking on Sky Sports, he said: “I'm excited for tonight and to be fair it's a must-win and I just think until the end of the season United will have to play only finals.

    “What I love about Ole is I can feel that the United DNA is back.

    “I know the results should be better and we should win the title, but it's not the time.

    “I think Ole is really honest with himself, they don't have the team to win the title.”

  • GAME DAY!

    Brighton welcome the Red Devils to the Amex looking to make it four Prem games unbeaten.

    Kick-off is at 8.15pm, but tune into SunSport's LIVE blog for all of the build-up and team news before it starts!

  • YOU SNOOZE, YOU LEWS

    Rene Muelensteen has called for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign a striker like Robert Lewandowski.

    United's former first-team coach told talkSPORT: “They brought Ighalo in as a player that could help United in certain and he's done actually very, very well.

    “But, if you look at the other players that have been there, Rashford, Martial, they're not really out-and-out strikers.

    “Greenwood is a young player coming up, same thing there.”

    Before he added: “What I think Manchester United is missing is a striker the calibre of Robert Lewadowski, somebody that is up there, can hold the line, can link play.”

  • OUT-FOXED

    Prem boss Richard Masters admitted the League may not be able to be completed if the Leicester coronavirus lockdown is extended.

    But Masters confirmed that WHATEVER happens Liverpool are now champions.

    He said: “We can clearly cope with the situation in Leicester should it mean that the club can't play home games for the foreseeable future or just this weekend. We can adapt to that.

    “If it were to happen in multiple areas or the course of the virus creates other risks there is the chance we might not be able to complete the season.

    “We have to get through to the end of July, complete our 380 games. That is all dependent on the course of the virus.

    “The clubs decided to deal with the issue of curtailment and what would have happened if the season wasn't completed – there would be a discussion when it occurred.”

  • GIVING IT LARG

    Largie Ramazani has revealed why he decided to quit Manchester United.

    He shared this lengthy letter with his 8.119 followers on Twitter.

  • MARTIAL LAW

    Anthony Martial is learning from Odion Ighalo in his quest to become a world-class No9.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Sky Sports News: “Odion is a seasoned No9.

    “He’s played that position his whole career whereas Anthony has played more out on the wing.

    “Odion is helping on the training pitch, in terms of his movement, hold-up play and just being himself.

    “Anthony’s learning off an experienced centre-forward.”

  • NEWS TO ME

    Frank Lampard claims Chelsea have NOT offered a contract to Angel Gomes.

    The Blues boss also confirmed signing the out-going Manchester United youngster has never even been discussed at the club.

    He said: “I can elaborate to the point that it's never been mentioned on my end. That's it.”

  • MORE FROM CAMERON

    Borthwick-Jackson added: “I’ve had some great experiences, made some great friends and had the opportunity to play against great players.

    “To that I owe a huge amount of gratitude to those members of the club who believed in me.

    “Likewise, I’ve had many negative experiences which in turn become lessons, especially in recent years.

    “It’s revealed some truths in football most people won’t ever see.

    “Lastly I’d like to say a big thank you to all the fans who have supported me and those who still continue to do so. I appreciate you.

    “I’m looking forward to a new chapter that awaits me, wherever it may be.”

  • CBJ: THANKS UTD

    Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has thanked United as the defender gets set to leave the club today, with the expiry of his contract.

    The 23-year-old is without a club after loan spells with Wolves, Leeds, Scunthorpe, Tranmere and Oldham.

    But fans will remember him breaking into the first team as a left wing-back under Louis van Gaal after Luke Shaw’s horrific injury.

    He said on Instagram: “After 17 years at the club, it’s time for me to leave Manchester United.

    “Growing up as a kid from Manchester, all I wanted to do was to play for United.

    “To make my debut for the club I grew up supporting was a dream come true and a day that will stay in my heart forever.”

  • SHUFFLE FOR SCUFFLE

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted that tonight is going to be prime time for Manchester United to shuffle the pack.

    The Norwegian told ManUtd.com: “We’ve discussed it quite a few times now, this lockdown period means there are loads of games in a short space of time, but the five subs of course makes it a different job.

    “You can make changes at half-time and or make them early and you spread the minutes around, and that’s what it’s about for a squad.

    “We’re all working here every day together and everyone needs to feel that they’re part of it and they have been.”

  • PRICE AIN’T RIGHT

    Manchester United will NOT pay more than £50million for Jadon Sancho, according to reports.

    That is despite Borussia Dortmund slapping a £100m price tag on the England winger’s head.

    According to Sky Sports, United are still favourites to do a deal but Red Devils officials think he is overvalued given the market has contracted after coronavirus.

    The huge gap between the two clubs’ valuations could lead to Sancho staying at Signal Iduna Park.

    Or rival clubs would be able to step into the breach, who Owen Hargreaves has described as a “generational talent.”

  • MATIC ON BRUNO

    Nemanja Matic is not surprised Bruno Fernandes has hit the ground running at Manchester United.

    The ex-Benfica midfielder said of the former Sporting Lisbon ace: “I've followed him for a long time because I played in the Portuguese league at Benfica.

    “I knew he would bring quality for us. He played for a big club with a lot of pressure to win, but I didn't think he would adapt so quick.

    “From the first minute in the Premier League he made the difference.

    “I'm happy for him and happy we have him in the team.

    “He's playing in the position where he needs to make the difference. He has all the ability to be the leader on the pitch.”

  • FIXTURES AND TV CHANNELS

    Manchester United's upcoming games include these for confirmed matches and kick-off times.

    The date and kick-off time for FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea – on either July 18 or 19 – is yet to be confirmed.

  • MORE MATIC

    The Serbian added: “I’m a soldier and I wait for the instructions from my coaching team.

    “To be honest, when you don't play of course you think about everything but in my head I always try to be positive.

    “I always believe in my quality and I know if work hard my time is going to come again.”

  • NE-MAN HE TURNS TO

    Nemanja Matic admits he has had to work to earn the trust of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    The Serbian was in a rich run of form when lockdown kicked in in March.

    He told Sky Sports: “I always try to be professional and give my best when I am on the pitch, it doesn't matter if it is training or a game.

    “I’ve played football for a long time already and this situation is normal, sometimes you don't play and the coach doesn't see you as a first option.

    “You can accept it or not but you have to be professional.

    “You have to work hard, wait for your chance and use it. This is exactly what I did.

    “Now the situation is different, the coach trusts me more.”

  • THE RAUL DEAL

    Raul Jimenez has admitted that it is “good to know” that other teams are talking about him, in a boost to potential suitors Manchester United.

    He told Telemundo: “First of all I am very happy here with the Wolves.

    “I am in a place where from the first moment we made an incredible connection.

    “I am no stranger to all that [the rumours], every day a new team comes out, every day a new offer comes out, I do not know how many millions.

    “It is good to know that they are talking about you, but what I have to do to make that happen is to continue doing my job here with the Wolves.”

  • ICYMI – AJAX FIRE SALE

    Erik Ten Hag has confirmed Donny van de Beek is among several Ajax stars who have “agreements” to leave the club.

    United are considering a bid for the livewire Dutch midfielder.

    Ten Hag said: “Based on their performance and ambition, a number of our players also want to make the move abroad.

    “Agreements have been made with Andre Onana, Donny van de Beek and Nicolas Tagliafico, but it remains to be seen whether the market is indeed breaking loose.

    “For Onana and Van de Beek, another year of Ajax could certainly be an option, for Tagliafico it is slightly different because of his age.”

  • ON THE UP

    Michael Owen has backed “improving” Manchester United to challenge Liverpool for the Premier League title next season.

    Owen told Premier League Productions: “I think [Liverpool] are a very, very strong team that’s probably going to be strong for some time.

    “[But] that’s not to say they can’t be caught.

    “Manchester City are a phenomenal team and if they turn it on we’re going to have a great title race.

    “Manchester United are the first team outside those two that spring to mind because they’re improving at a rapid rate.”

  • LIKELY XI

    United take on Brighton tonight still dreaming of snatching a top-four spot.

    The Red Devils go into the clash at the Amex Stadium on the back of a last-gasp, extra-time win over Norwich – courtesy of a Harry Maguire header.

    With the games coming thick and fast, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to rotate heavily.

    And that should mean a return to the starting XI for Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

  • OFF THE MARC

    As one promising youngster leaves, another is set to arrive for United.

    Marc Jurado has bid farewell to Barcelona as his free transfer to Manchester United draws closer.

    The 16-year-old wonderkid announced on Instagram he will be leaving the Nou Camp after nine years with the club.

    He wrote: “It’s never easy to leave a team that has given you everything. FC Barcelona has been my second home, my second family, where I have developed as a player and as a person.

    “Today it’s time to say goodbye, but not before expressing my gratitude to each of the people who have helped me since I started in the prebenjamín in the year 2011.”

    The right-back has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford and it emerged last month he agreed personal terms with United.
