Man Utd player ratings as Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes batter Brighton

Manchester United earned a convincing win in their Champions League chase as they swatted aside Brighton & Hove Albion 3-0 in a dominant display at the Amex Stadium.

After Bruno Fernandes had hit the post early on, Mason Greenwood expertly fired home at Mat Ryan's near post following a determined run.

Fernandes made it 2-0 when his effort found the net following a deflection after he'd been teed up by Paul Pogba.

But the visitors saved their best for last when a sweeping counter attack featuring a Harry Maguire header, Nemanja Matic's long ball and Greenwood's fine run and cross was finished off by Fernandes at the back post.
