United defender Shaw handed the Seagulls a penalty in added time and Alexis Mac Allister fired past David de Gea from the spot to secure all three points.

The goal marked the latest winning goal scored against United in Premier League history in a dramatic finish on the south coast.

Shaw, 27, opened up about his crucial error at full-time and bemoaned the fact that Brighton were given a late corner – from which he produced the handball – and the England international felt that he was nudged.
