Comments:

League position: 4th Manchester United had now lost one of their last 13 games in the Premier League (won seven). The Red Devils remained unbeaten in their last 25 home games in the Premier League played in February since 2008 (won 19). Cristiano Ronaldo avoided completing a run of seven consecutive club appearances in all competitions without scoring for the first time since January 2009 during his first spell with United. Raphael Varane was originally named in the starting line-up before falling ill in the pre-match warm-up. Victor Lindelöf was promoted to the starting XI with Tom Heaton taking his place on the bench.

Comments:

League position: 9th Brighton and Hove Albion failed in their attempt to equal their club record of eight consecutive games in the top division without defeat set in November 1981 in League Division One. Albion had now lost two of their 13 away games so far in this Premier League season (won four). They had now scored one or no goals in 17 of their 24 games so far in this Premier League season (two in six of the other seven). Lewis Dunk was shown a yellow card in the 52nd minute but was upgraded to a red card following a VAR review.
