Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Brighton reaction LOSS, Leroy Sane is Antony alternative, Ronaldo ‘holding talks at Galatasaray’
Danny played through the chain barrier
Brighton manager Graham Potter has praised Danny Welbeck, who put in a stunning performance against former club Manchester United, despite suffering from a stomach ache.
The Seagulls ruined new United manager Erik ten Hag’s debut at Old Trafford by beating the Red Devils 2-1 with a brace from Pascal Gross.
Potter praised his players but was particularly impressed with Welbeck as he played sick and still dominated Harry Maguire as well as Lisandro Martinez.
The Brighton manager wasn’t surprised by the striker’s resilience as he knew he would have ‘strapped the toilet on his back’ to play for his team.
Potter said, “He [Welbeck] would have strapped the toilet on his back to play, but that would have slowed him down. He was amazing.
The Brighton boss added: “You can see how many times we’ve won here as a club, it’s not easy so when you get the three points it’s nice to celebrate.
“The guys were amazing, it was a top performance, with real charisma and personality and I’m really proud of them. It was a fantastic effort from the players and we deserved the win over the of the game. It’s a historic victory for us, it’s something to celebrate.
“We had an idea on how to attack and then, when we could, we tried to press and put them under pressure. We were brave in what we did.
