Manchester United scored a 100th-minute penalty after the full-time whistle as Brighton lost 3-2 in a five-goal thriller on Saturday.
The Seagulls, who have touched the post five times to set a new Premier League record, believed they had finally got their reward when Solly March equalized in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
But Neal Maupay, the man who put Brighton ahead of the spot, handled in the box in the dying seconds, before VAR stepped in after the final whistle.
Having already scored a Man United goal and canceled a Brighton penalty, VAR correctly gave Bruno Fernandes the chance to win the game for United with the last kick – which he duly took.
Maupay went from hero to zero, having started this incredible five-goal thriller with a superb Panenka penalty
This gave Graham Potter’s side a deserved lead, but the scores were level again within minutes.
A set-piece for Manchester United from the left found Nemanja Matic at the back post and he turned his back through the goal and into the path of Harry Maguire who, although tangled with Lewis Dunk, managed to force his opponent to push himself into his. net.
Although the score was 1-1 at half time, throughout the first half the Seagulls gave the Red Devils something to worry about.
Trossard hit the post twice, the first in the ninth minute of the game as he took a touch at the limit of the effort and unleashed a distorted strike.
His second strike embraced the amount after the Belgian made an effort on goal.
It wasn’t the last time Brighton messed up the woodwork guarded by David de Gea as Adam Webster’s slow loop header hit the crossbar to make it a hat-trick.
Ultimately Brighton would set an undesirable record hitting the woodwork a grand total of FIVE times – the most recorded in a Premier League game since statistics were collected.
Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood had goals denied by VAR and were also ruled offside by VAR when he scored in the second half, but the technology eventually worked in United’s favor.
Aaron Connolly was deemed to have dived under pressure from Paul Pogba, then Rashford went on and scored a superb solo goal to put United ahead.
March finally found the net for Brighton in the last minute of the stoppage time, but even that wasn’t enough to snatch a point as there was more drama to follow.
VAR stepped in to punish Maupay after the final whistle, and Mat Ryan was sent the wrong way to round up perhaps the most unlucky defeat in Premier League history.
