Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s winning start to his Manchester United managerial career was extended on Saturday, with the Red Devils beating Brighton 2-1 at Old Trafford.

The victory sees the Norwegian become the first manager to win his first six league games in charge of the Red Devils, with Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford finding the back of the net for the hosts.

United started brightly and took the lead on 27 minutes, with Pogba converting a penalty after he had been fouled in the box by Gaetan Bong.

The hosts continued to dominate and doubled their advantage just before the break, with Rashford netting with a superb solo goal.

Brighton improved in the second-half and got one back on 72 minutes, with Pascal Gross firing in off the bar.

However, the revitalised Red Devils would deservedly win the game 2-1, extending Solskjaer’s winning start to six league games.

United now find themselves just three points off the top four, with their players certainly enjoying their new-found freedom post-Jose Mourinho.

As for Chris Hughton’s Seagulls, they find themselves in 13th spot, seven points clear of the drop-zone and unlikely to get drawn into a relegation battle this season.
