On this day, Manchester United used a 4-3-1-2 formation. Hoeyun and Rashford were at the forefront, with Bruno at the back. Eriksen, Casemiro, and McTominay worked together in midfield, and the back four consisted of Reguilon, Lisandro, Lindelof, and Dalot. Goalkeeper gloves were worn by Onana.

In response, Brighton used a 4-2-3-1 formation. Welbeck started as the lone player, and Mitoma, Lallana, and Addingara formed the second line. Dahoud and Grosz played as midfielders, and the back four consisted of Lampty, Dunk, Heck, and Veltman. The goal was guarded by Steele. 

Brighton took the lead. Welbeck scored in the 20th minute of the first half. Manchester United also launched a counterattack. Rashford’s shot hit the goalpost in the 34th minute of the first half. There was also the most disappointing scene at the end of the first half. In the 41st minute of the first half, Hoirun received a pass from Rashford and hit the net. However, as a result of video review (VAR), it was not recognized as a goal. 

Manchester United was unable to turn the game around. Rather, they gave up goals in succession in the 8th minute and 26th minute of the second half. Fortunately, Mebri scored a goal in the 28th minute of the second half, but was unable to score any additional points and ended up losing 1-3. As a result, Manchester United has recently recorded two consecutive losses in the league and has achieved poor results of 2 wins and 3 losses in 5 games since the opening. 

In particular, Manchester United fans expressed disappointment when Hoirun was replaced 19 minutes into the second half. On this day, Hoe Irun appeared as a starter for the first time since joining Manchester United. Hoirun joined Manchester United this summer. He appeared to be the right person to solve the problems of the front line, but injury problems were discovered after the transfer, so he was not able to make his debut quickly.

And he made his debut as a substitute in the match against Arsenal ahead of the September international break. This game was his second appearance and his first as a starter. Although he was not in perfect physical condition, his performance was not bad, and he even hit the net once. It was just a shame that it wasn’t recognized as a score. 

Global media ‘Goal.com’ said, “Fans booed when coach Ten Haag replaced Høirun and brought in Martial. Høirun succeeded in scoring in the 42nd minute of the first half, but VAR showed that the ball had already been lost before Rashford passed in the lead situation. “As it was confirmed that the goal had crossed the line, it was not recognized as a goal,” the report said.

Regarding the reason for replacing Høirun, Coach Ten Haag said, “Høirun’s performance was good. I think the fans’ booing is also a positive sign. It will give him a lot of trust in the future. However, Høirun is not yet in shape to play full-time. “It was not in good condition,” he said.
