Brighton earn first double over Man Utd with PK

WATCH: Brighton claim first-ever double over Man United thanks to Mac Allister's late PK

A blatant handball by Luke Shaw in the final minute of stoppage time granted the Seagulls a chance to punish Ten Hag's men from the spot.

Brighton are having their best season in history, and if anyone needed proof of that, a nerve-wracking win against Manchester United is there for them to realize the great momentum Roberto De Zerbi's men are enjoying right now.

The game between the Seagulls and Manchester United seemed destined to end in a goalless draw, but a late penalty kick transformed by Alexis Mac Allister into a game-winning goal kicked off all celebrations at Falmer Stadium.

The home team had enjoyed at least two clear chances of taking the win in the final moments of the match, but a deflection by Bruno Fernandes and a save by David De Gea kept the Red Devils alive. Unfortunately for Ten Hag's crew, a blatant handball by Luke Shaw was spotted by VAR officers and handed the penalty right away to the home team.

World Cup winner with Argentina, Alexis Mac Allister, did not waste the chance to keep Brighton in the run for a spot in European competitions by drilling his spot kick past De Gea in impressive fashion. Here's Mac Allister's penalty for you to enjoy (Image might be geo-restricted).

This win will forever be remembered by Brighton fans, as it marked the first season where they were able to defeat Manchester United in both fixtures of a Premier League campaign.

The Seagulls also found another reason to celebrate their entrance in the league's record books, but something tells us Manchester United fans will not appreciate that.
