According to the Brighton and Hove Albion defender, the 2-1 defeat against Manchester United let the team show something good for the fans.

Brighton and Hove Albion was defeated 2-1 by Manchester United in yesterday’s English Premier League fixture.

But according to the Seagulls defender Lewis Dunk, not everything was negative, as his team showed a good face during the second half.

“We were all disappointed at the break and the manager spoke to us about that,” he told the team’s official website.

“We reacted well and that’s the positive to take from today [Saturday]. I thought we were excellent in the second half and if we’d played like that in the first then we could have easily got something.”

“We felt we had to score next and we did, it gave us a boost, but it just wasn’t meant to be for us,” he added.

“Last year we felt as though we didn’t perform against the top sides, but this season we’ve been in all the games and performed well.”

“It’s about taking the next step now – that might mean getting the first goal and kicking on from there, but we have to look forward now,” he commented.

“We feel disappointed because we lost the game in the first half, it’s a tough place to come as it is.”
