Ralf Rangnick insists they had to change tactics against Brighton in other to get victory at Old Trafford.

Manchester interim manager Ralf Rangnick stated that they needed to change tactics in the second half of the game against Brighton.

United were victorious in the game after goals from Portugal’s duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruni Fernandes gave them a hard fought three points.

Rangnick also hail Ronaldo’s performance after he ended his few weeks goal drought with an outside the box shot.

Speaking with Skysports the German claims that was Ronaldo’s best performance in the last few weeks.

He said: “It was a good performance by Ronaldo. In the last few weeks, it was certainly the best performance by him and a very, very important goal.

“Everyone could see after the first half, it was not an easy game. They are very possession-based. It was difficult for us to get hold of the ball. We made a change and it paid off. In the second half, we were more aggressive and tried to intercept the ball.

“The question at half-time was do we change formation or how we attack? We decided to stick to 4-2-3-1 and told our wingers to attack their centre-backs. That meant our full-backs had to jump to their full-backs and that paid off. From then on, it was a different game.”
