Four records Man United, Solskjaer broke against Brighton

20 Jan 2019, 14:00

The 2-1 Manchester United win over Brighton made Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the only third manager to win six consecutive matches in charge of a team in the Premier League.

The other two are Carlos Ancelotti during his time in charge of Chelsea and the other manager with is Manchester City’s, Pep Guardiola. Solskajer though has recorded seven matches in charge with the seventh being a cup victory over Reading.

Chris Hughton, Brighton’s boss was not happy with how his team gifted Solskjaer the win that earned him the record saying his team conceded too easily.

"The biggest disappointment is the goals we conceded. I thought we very much gave them a game. We will need lots of that come to the end of the season but I thought there was a chance for us today. We needed a bit more quality in the final third and in general." Hugon lamented.

Stats

  • Solskjaer is just the third manager in Premier League history to win his first six games in charge of a club, after Carlo Ancelotti with Chelsea and Pep Guardiola with Manchester City.
  • United have won more penalties (seven) while Brighton have conceded more (also seven) than any other Premier League side this season.
  • Pogba's goal was his eighth in the Premier League this season, equalling his best return in a single season in the top five European leagues (also eight with Juventus in 2014-15 and 2015-16).
  • Rashford has now scored in his last four Premier League games. Only Anthony Martial (five) has had a better such run in the competition this season.
