Goal Scorer:

Team News
Erik ten Hag will be bidding to make the perfect start to his reign as Manchester United boss when the Red Devils welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Man United finished sixth in the table last season, some 13 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, while Brighton were ninth, picking up 51 points during an impressive campaign

Manchester United
Man United boss Ten Hag revealed during Friday's press conference that Anthony Martial is out of the contest due to a hamstring problem, which could open the door for Ronaldo to start through the middle.

A lack of minutes this summer are likely to count against the Portuguese, though, which could mean that Marcus Rashford moves central, with Anthony Elanga coming into the side in a wide position.

Much could depend on whether Jadon Sancho overcomes an illness in time, as the England international has not been pictured in training this week and was not referenced by Ten Hag during his discussion with the media.

There could be a debut at the heart of the defence for Lisandro Martinez, while Malacia could get the nod over Luke Shaw at left-back, with the Englishman absent last weekend through illness.

Facundo Pellistri (ankle) and Brandon Williams (unspecified) are likely to be absent, while Mason Greenwood remains suspended by the club.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Dalot, Maguire, L Martinez, Malacia; Fred, McTominay; Sancho, Fernandes, Elanga; Rashford

Brighton & Hove Albion
As for Brighton, Potter revealed during his pre-match press conference that he has a fully-fit squad aside from Jakub Moder, who is a long-term absentee with a knee injury.

Cucurella's departure could open the door for Solly March to play as the left-sided wing-back, while Alexis Mac Allister is set to start after shaking off a groin issue.

Leandro Trossard scored three times against Espanyol last time out and will also feature in an attacking area, with Danny Welbeck potentially leading the line against his former club.
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; Veltman, Dunk, Webster; Lamptey, Mwepu, Gross, March; MacAllister, Welbeck, Trossard
Prediction: Manchester United 2-1 Brighton & Hove Albion
