Manchester United VS Brighton & Hove Albion
Saturday (25/11/2017)
16:00 (WAT)
Manchester United's pursuit of Premier League leaders Man City continues on Saturday as Brighton travel to Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho's Red Devils survived an early scare to eventually dismantle Newcastle 4-1 last Saturday, leaving United second in the table after a strong start to the season.

The trouble for Mourinho is that Pep Guardiola's City are in stunning form having dropped just two points from the opening 12 games, and sit eight points clear of their city rivals.

United cannot afford to lose any more ground if they are to offer a realistic title challenge to City, and need a result after a disappointing Champions League defeat against Basel in midweek.


Team news
Mourinho will likely revert to his preferred XI after a number of squad players failed to take their chance to impress against Basel.

Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia should return on the flanks, while Mourinho may stick with the same front four - Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku - who staged the comeback against Newcastle.

United may have problems at centre-back though, with Phil Jones still out and Eric Bailly a major doubt.

Predicted line-ups

Man United starting XI: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Young; Matic, Pogba; Martial, Mata, Rashford; Lukaku

Brighton starting XI: Ryan; Bruno, Hunemeier, Dunk, Suttner; Knockhaert, Stephens, Dropper, March; Gross, Murray
