With 50 minutes on the clock at the Amex Stadium, Manchester United produced a moment of counterattacking magic worthy of any of the club's great sides.

It all started with a Harry Maguire header and was finished by a volley from man of the moment Bruno Fernandes.

It was the Portuguese's second goal of the game and sixth in all competitions since he signed from Sporting CP back in January.

There aren’t enough superlatives to fully explain the impact the Portugal international has had since his arrival at Old Trafford.

United look a totally different team with Fernandes in the starting line-up and his new partnership with Paul Pogba is blossoming into something special.

Man United' s brilliant form in 10 games has seen a huge transformation since Bruno Fernandes ' arrival and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deserves some real credit for

In Wednesday night's 3-0 win at Brighton, they were making just their second start together and yet performed like a veteran duo.

After just 12 minutes, the hosts were given a warning of what was to come, with Pogba teeing up Fernandes, who saw his shot rebound off Mathew Ryan’s post.

The pair repeated the move on the half-hour mark, though, and this time Fernandes' strike from outside of the box found the back of the net.

The fit-again Pogba is playing like he has never been away and credit must not just to Fernandes but also Nemanja Matic, who is offering greater security tucked in behind them.

Mason Greenwood, though, was arguably the star of the show on the south coast.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes exciting claim about Manchester United wonderkid. The 17-year-old’ s impressive stats at youth level earned him four appearances in Solskjaer ’ s senior side, and the MUFC boss says he now expects to use him more next season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ' s side totally dominated the contest at the Amex Stadium and extended their unbeaten run to 15 games to move up to fifth in the Teenager Mason Greenwood bamboozled Seagulls defender Lewis Dunk with quick footwork and drilled in an accurate opener for the visitors.

It was the 18-year-old who opened the scoring as United stretched their unbeaten run in all competitions to 15 and it was a sublime individual effort from a player who has vindicated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision not to buy another forward after Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez left for Inter last summer.

As he cut inside from the right and skipped through the Brighton defence with two stepovers, Ryan would have had no idea which foot the shot was coming off.

This time, the two-footed teenager shifted the ball on to his left and fired past Ryan at the goalkeeper's near post.

It was Greenwood's 13th goal in all competitions, which is an incredible tally for one so young, in his full first campaign in the Premier League. It was no wonder, then, that Solskjaer was sporting a smile in the stands.

Greenwood wasn’t done there either. He was instrumental in United’s third, producing a stunning cross for Fernandes to crash home a late contender for goal of the season, one which bore all the hallmarks of Sir Alex Ferguson's heyday.

When Solskjaer let Lukaku, their leading goal scorer, leave last year without bringing in a replacement, there was understandable concern over United's attacking options.

However, patience has proven a virtue for the Norwegian manager.

Fernandes was well worth waiting for; he's now been directly involved in eight goals in his first eight Premier League games for United, scoring five and assisting three – only Robin van Persie has enjoyed such a successful start to an Old Trafford career.

As for Greenwood, Solskjaer knew he just need time to shine. He's doing that right now.

Thanks to Greenwood, Fernandes and Solskjaer, United's present looks just as exciting as the future.
