Gary Neville and Brighton ‘toast’ to humiliating Manchester United defeat

Gary Neville and Brighton toast each other over Manchester United’s humble defeat on Saturday night.

Moises Caicedo, once a target of United in midfield, started the defeat in the first half before Marc Cucurella, Pascal Gross and Leandro Trossard made a miserable evening on the coast for Ralf Rangnick and his side. It was another chapter in a bleak Premier League season in which some unwanted records for the Reds were overturned.

Mathematically, United’s tiny hopes of Champions League qualification came to an end and the defeat marked the fifth in a row away from home. It also resulted in Rangnick’s sixth league loss as interim manager.

Match of the Day host Gary Lineker summed up the display for full time. He tweeted: “Good heavens! @OfficialBHAFC plays fantastic football.

“However, this is arguably @ManUtd’s worst performance of the season…and that’s quite an achievement.”

For United legend Neville, who has been candid in his criticism of the squad and the hierarchy this season, he was unable to react and posted a lone full-stop. Brighton’s social media team were among those who noticed and responded with a red wine emoji, referencing Neville’s regular selfies of him taking a sip in celebration.
