The Frenchman continued his impressive form with his tenth goal of the season, and Marcus Rashford also scored his 150th appearance with a goal.
Paul Pogba scored his tenth goal of the season to put Manchester United 1-0 against Brighton, matching their best record in a single campaign.
The Frenchman won and scored a penalty in the first half, producing his trademark stutter now before leaving David Button in Brighton's goal.
And it was a significant goal for Pogba, since the 25-year-old equalized the most goals he scored in a season, which he achieved during his time with Juventus.
The winner of the World Cup won 10 in all competitions twice during his career at Juve, in 2014-15 and 2015-16.
And now he has 10 in all competitions for United in 2018-19, with five of them since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was named interim manager in December.
Pogba, despite his well-documented clashes with José Mourinho, hit twice in the first two games of the season, before scoring two in a 3-0 victory in the Champions League over Young Boys in September.
He would not find the back of the net until a 2-1 victory over Everton on October 28, and then he went eight games without scoring when he found himself inside and outside the team at the end of Mourinho's tenure.
But it seems to have been revitalized since the appointment of Solskjaer, with the Norwegian opting to play the French international in a more advanced role No.10 behind the center forward.
And without a doubt, he has been rewarded because, in addition to his five league goals in his last six league games, Pogba has also contributed four badists, including Marcus Rashford's goal in a 1-0 victory over Tottenham.
England striker England Rashford was also on the scoreboard in the first half against Brighton in what was his 150th game for United.
Congratulations to Marcus Rashford.

That was also his eighth goal of the Premier League campaign: the maximum he scored in a single season, with the 21-year-old scoring seven in 2017-2018.
Rashford has scored 41 goals for United in his 150 games in all competitions, which is more than any of his teammates has achieved since his debut in 2015.
If the Red Demons continue claiming the three points against Brighton, they will advance ahead of Arsenal and occupy fifth place in the table, although the Gunners will have the opportunity to advance again in the last start of the match against Chelsea.
