Speaking to the

, he said:

“It's a confidence booster, I've not scored as many in the Premier League. I scored a header tonight which is something I've been working on a lot behind the scenes.”

This was Greenwood’s second league goal for Manchester United in their current league campaign. Having played 24 Premier League matches, the 19-year-old has established himself as a regular first-team player for the Red Devils.

“It was a hard night. When they scored the first goal, we knew we had to react and put in a better performance. Everyone was excellent in the second half.

"I don't think we started very well but we knew we had to switch on and be focused. We should have started that from the moment we came out, but it's a good three points. There was a lot of men behind the ball and we had to have that creative spark.

“Credit to Brighton. They scored the first goal, defended well and held us off. We had to break them down and we did that eventually.

“We weren't worried. We knew we had the quality on the pitch. Everyone kept their heads. There's a lot to play for.”
