Team News:
Both sides beat Championship opposition away from home in the EFL Cup in midweek, but they suffered contrasting fortunes in their last league games with Brighton beating Newcastle United and Man United losing at home to Crystal Palace.

Brighton will be without Yves Bissouma after he was sent off for his accidental-but-dangerous kick to the face of Jamal Lewis during last weekend's win at Newcastle.

Connolly and the impressive Tariq Lamptey are both minor doubts who are expected to shake off their problems and be available.

Jose Izquierdo, Florin Andone and Christian Walton are all sidelined, though, while Dale Stephens is expected to complete his switch to Burnley before this contest.

Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Ryan; White, Dunk, Webster; Lamptey, Propper, Alzate, March; Trossard, Connolly, Maupay

Manchester United
One of the few positives to take from Manchester United's defeat to Palace last weekend was a goal for debutant Donny van de Beek, who will be pushing for his first Premier League start here.

Whether Solskjaer chooses to use him in a slightly deeper role alongside Paul Pogba remains to be seen, though, with his usual spot in attacking midfield seemingly taken by Bruno Fernandes.

Greenwood and Rashford both came off the bench to score in midweek and are expected to be among a host of first-teamers restored to the starting XI.

De Gea is likely to be one of those despite conceding three times in their opening match and Dean Henderson pulling off a fine save to keep a clean sheet against Luton.

Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones are both sidelined, while Chris Smalling is unlikely to be selected as he continues to be linked with a move away.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Pogba, Van de Beek; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial
