It was mostly United in the first 20 minutes before Anthony Knockaert raced onto a long ball and spun a 20-yard shot wide of David De Gea’s far post.
Brighton did indeed take the lead through Murray, who cut in front of Victor Lindelof to flick a pretty ball from Solly March beyond De Gea.
Duffy then settled a cross in the heart of the United box before doubling Brighton’s advantage.
Lukaku answered with a headed goal, but a poor pass from David De Gea led to Eric Bailly’s sliding challenge on Pascal Gross. He converted the penalty to make it 3-1.
