Jordan Henderson lauded his former Liverpool teammate, Adam Lallana, after he helped Brighton and Hove Albion secure a historic 2-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, as he posted on Instagram. Graham Potter guided Brighton to their first-ever win at Manchester United on the opening weekend of the Premier League season, with Lallana impressing in the middle of the park.

Given his Liverpool connections, the 34-year-old would have been ever more overjoyed with that performance in Manchester and the all-important three points for his side. This was Eric ten Hag’s first Premier League game in charge, and even though pre-season was pretty positive for the club, it just goes to show how much of it means absolutely nothing compared to when the real stuff starts.

Brighton vs Man U

Pascal Gross netted a brace in the first half to turn a positive atmosphere inside Old Trafford into a pretty hostile one in next to no time, with Lallana playing 76 minutes for his team. Nonetheless, when the ex-Liverpool midfielder expressed his delight at the win on IG, Jordan Henderson posted in the comments section ‘what a player’, whilst ex-Red Dejan Lovren added ‘Well done bro’.

Even though Lallana has suffered a number of unfortunate injuries during his career, now that he is fit and firing, the 34-year-old is still producing the goods. Brighton don’t splash the cash like many teams in the Premier League, in fact, they have just lost two of their best players this summer.

Despite that, they rocked up in Manchester, and not only secured three points, but put on a performance worthy of that win and outclassed an Eric ten Hag side full of star-studded players. Graham Potter is doing quite the job at the Amex Stadium and it just goes to show how work on the training field can trump money spent in the market.
