Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray has revealed he will prefer to focus on the positives of their recent performances following the Seagull’s latest setback in last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford. The defeat extends Brighton’s Premier League winless run to three.

Goals from Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford were enough to see off a resilient Brighton side despite a late consolation from Pascal Gross. Pogba sent the hosts ahead 20 minutes in from the penalty spot, after been brought to deck in the Brighton box.

Rashford afforded the Red Devils some breathing space just before half time, evading his marker before curling one past the helpless Button into top corner of the net.

Brighton’s consolation arrived in the second half, when Propper’s exquisite outside-the-boot pass was latched onto by Gross, the midfielder making no mistake with his finish.

2-1 the game ended at Old Trafford but striker Glenn Murray was quick to play down the impact of their losses at Manchester United and Liverpool in their last two games.

The striker says he does not feel like his Brighton team was outplayed too much in the two games considering the stature of the clubs in question and the top class players available in these teams. He feels his team did well to avoid a cricket-like score-line in both games.

Speaking further, he explained how difficult it is to get away with something at Old Trafford and how happy he was with his team’s performance.

The Seagulls are still in search of their first league win in 2019 and the tensions are rising. The Brighton players will be forgiven though, considering how unfavorable their fixture list has been.

Brighton play host to West Brom in the FA Cup fourth round on January 26, as they look to break their 2019 hoodoo.
