Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton insists that his side's victory over Manchester United was down to their own good performance, rather than United being poor.

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton has insisted that his side's 3-2 victory over Manchester United this afternoon was more to do with their good performance than a poor display from the visitors.

Glenn Murray, Shane Duffy and Pascal Gross were all on target in the first half for the Seagulls as they picked up a shock three points in their first home game of the season.

The result came off the back of a 2-0 defeat at Watford on the opening weekend, and Hughton was delighted with the way his side responded to the setback.

"Very proud of the performance, particularly the reaction from last week," Hughton told reporters.

"The tempo of the game was very good and I must admit, even if we hadn't got the result, I would have been really delighted with the way our team played the game and the levels that we got to, to try and get a result.

"And I would like to think that most people watching the game would look at it - I know once it's a big-six team that others will look at it a little bit different - that we were good, as opposed to United being poor."

Brighton have now won back-to-back matches against Manchester United for the first time in their history.
