Fans say the same thing after Sky Sports cameras show Brighton’s dressing room celebrations following Man Utd win | The Sun

BRIGHTON boss Roberto De Zerbi led the dressing room celebrations after leading his side to victory over Manchester United on Thursday.

The Seagulls successfully avenged the FA Cup semi-final defeat to the Red Devils from two weeks ago, and in doing so completed a league double over United for the first time in their history.

Alexis Mac Allister's dramatic 99th minute penalty to seal a 1-0 win was also a huge step towards European qualification for Brighton.

And Italian boss De Zerbi, who was initially a doubt for the game due to illness, made sure his side celebrated in the dressing room after the game.

He clapped along and waved his hand in the air while a member of his backroom staff danced away.

However, some United fans poked fun at the Seagulls after seeing Sky Sports air the celebrations.

Supporters pointed out that Erik ten Hag's side had come out on top when the two sides faced off at Wembley just days ago – in what most would argue was the bigger game.

One joked in response to the dressing room scenes: "Celebrating like they’ve made it to the FA cup final."

Another said: "It’s like they won a semi final or something!!!"

A third added: "We're their cup final shame they couldn't do it when it really mattered at Wembley."

And a fourth quipped: "Every teams cup final when United comes to town."

The game at the Amex seemed to destined to end 0-0 until a late Luke Shaw handball gifted Brighton a penalty.

Referee Andre Marriner initially waved away the home side's claims but changed his decision after consulting the pitchside VAR monitor.

Mac Allister stepped up and coolly slotted the from the spot.

Shaw admitted to making a "silly mistake" after the match, telling Sky Sports: "It hurts a lot, last minute, last action.

"I got a little nudge but my hand shouldn't be there and I own up to it.

"Take it on the chin, cost us the game, it's tough I can't even explain why my hand's up there, I got a nudge, maybe that helps but still it shouldn't be there.

"Even before the corner the free-kick that was given away was never a foul. I'm not looking for excuses for what I did but there's no way that should have been given a foul.

"For me that corner shouldn’t have happened, I can't change that, not accusing the ref of anything but for me it wasn’t a foul but hands up, silly mistake. But it cost us a point at the end."
