Team News:

Manchester Unted
Manchester United will be looking to get their season back up and running yet again when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Red Devils have won just three of their opening 11 games of the Premier League and currently sit 10th in the table, two places and two points behind their opponents this weekend.
Manchester United will be sweating on the fitness of Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire after the pair sustained knocks in their 3-0 win over Partizan Belgrade on Thursday.

Victor Lindelof is also a doubt after missing the Partizan game due to a back injury, though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful he could return alongside McTominay.

The Red Devils will definitely be without the suspended Ashley Young, who joins the likes of Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly on the sidelines.

Predicted XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Rojo, Williams; Fred, McTominay; James, Lingard, Rashford; Martial.


Brighton
After an equally inconsistent start to life in the Premier League, Graham Potter has Brighton playing good football and the Seagulls have won three of their past four games, including a 3-0 victory over Tottenham.
Brighton will be without Adam Webster for their trip to Old Trafford this weekend after he picked up an ankle injury in their win over Norwich last week.

The defender joins Bernardo and Jose Izquierdo on the sidelines, but Leandro Trossard could be in line for a start after coming off the bench to score against Norwich.

Predicted XI: Ryan; Montoya, Dunk, Duffy, Burn; Gross, Stephens, Propper; Alzate, Maupay, Trossard.

Quote
Key stat:
Brandon Williams has averaged 2 tackles per 90 minutes in the Europa League this season.
Only three players have created more chances in the Premier League than Pascal Gross’ 27 this season.

Prediction: Man Utd 1-0 Brighton
Manchester United have been a strange side this season, not really wanting to hit a run of form. The Red Devils are yet to string back-to-back Premier League wins together and must start again after last weekend’s defeat to Bournemouth.

And it will not be easy for them this weekend against a Brighton side that have won three of their past four games.

However, the Seagulls have never won at Old Trafford and, having already lost an unbeaten Premier League home record to Crystal Palace this season, United will be keen to keep that particular run going.
