Brighton & Hove Albion head coach Chris Hughton was full of praise for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the Norwegian’s impact at Manchester United since taking over the reins.
The Seagulls were unable to bring Manchester United’s impressive six games winning run to a halt as the Red devils overcame to extend their run to seven.
Speaking in an interview after the game, Hughtonheaped praise on his opposite number saying their results and performances have improved since Ole took over, insisting no one else could have that much impact in such a short amount of time.
He also praised the Norwegian for beating Sir Matt Busby’s Man United record of five wins in a row by registering his sixth win in the league and seventh in all competitions.
The resurgence of England international Marcus Rashford has been put down to the confidence Ole has instilled in him, giving him the license to shoot the ball on sight. The Englishman has now scored in each of his last three Premier League games, taking his tally to eight for the season.
The Seagulls fell behind at Old Trafford after Man United were awarded a penalty when Paul Pogba was sandwiched in the box by Bong and Gross, the French midfielder stepping up to fire the Red Devils ahead.
The Brighton manager feels the referee made the right call by awarding the penalty as it was a clear one but also lamented how difficult it is to defend against some of the best players in the league.
Brighton are on a three match winless run but will be looking to bring this run to a halt when they welcome West Brom on January 26 in the FA Cup fourth round.
