EPL: Balogun Benched As Brighton Lose 3-1 To Man United At Old Trafford

Leon Balogun was an unused substitute as Brighton & Hove Albion fell to a 3-1 defeat against Manchester United at the Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, reports Completesports.com.

Balogun is yet to make an appearance for the Seagulls in the Premier League this season.

Brighton struggled to cope with the pace and quality of the home side in the game .

Andreas Perreira’s deflected effort in the 17th minute put United on their way to victory in the game.

Scott McTominay forced Davy Propper into an own goal two minutes later after a Harry Maguire knockdown.

Anxiety grew around Old Trafford when Lewis Dunk scored against the run of play in the 64th minute but the Marcus Rashford restored the two-goal cushion two minutes later.

    Sometimes moving to the premier league can kill a players career.. Balogun had offers in Germany but went for the galore of the epl, we know the outcome

    I had no choice but to kill a cow today to celebrate Balogun’s bench appearance. Balogun on B&H bench? Once in a blue moon sumfin. Who knows when we are going to see him on the bench again? Balogun, this January should not pass you by. Make a move! Why should your career come to a finish at B&H? A defender who held his own against Messi at the world cup, who has been one of our best center backs in the past 2 years, is considered not good enough at B&H. Obviously, they are either crazy, stupid or just plain biased. Balogun should not hang around to wait for them to come to their senses. He should move on!

    Very well said @ Pompeii…

    • In the EPL, it seems you only have a real chance to play regularly if there’s no English player in your position that your English coach thinks has a potential and wants to groom for the 3Lions. Kelechi is another example (although he too is not helping matters). Musa too rarely had a playing opportunity at Leicester until he moved and saved his career. I wonder if Lampard would still be playing Tammy and Tomori if they had turned down England. Aina is now a regular after choosing Nigeria and moving to Italy. EPL coaches (especially English coaches) look face before they play you. It’s like a secret code/rule the English FA gave them.

      Thanks Glory. It pains me so much that such a talented defender is wasting away like this. Leon should do himself (and his fans) a favor and move away from that club.
