Ryan praised after Brighton's loss to Manchester United in Premier League
Brighton and Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton praised Caltex Socceroos keeper Mat Ryan for two key saves after his side's narrow 1-0 loss to Manchester United in the EPL overnight.
In front of over 75,000 fans, United kept their 100% home record this season but the Seagulls pushed them all the way.
Ashley Young's deflected strike in the 66th minute helped Jose Mourinho's men grind out the three points against Hughton's side.
Ryan then made a great double save to deny Paul Pogba and Lukaku right before the break.
The Brighton boss told BHAFC that he didn’t think they deserved to come away with nothing from the game.
"It was almost one of those games that was going to take that little bit of brilliance or fortune - and, of course, they got the fortune with the deflected goal.
“I thought we were worthy of at least a draw today. Our play was good and we restricted them to minimal chances.
“We needed Maty Ryan to make two really good saves for us - but apart from that, I can’t think of a clear opportunity they had in the 90 minutes."
Brighton next face Crystal Palace on Tuesday night (Wed AM AEDT).
