EFL Cup trip to Brighton date confirmed

Manchester United will travel to Brighton & Hove Albion in the fourth round of this season’s EFL Cup.

We travel to the south coast this Saturday lunchtime to face the Seagulls in the Premier League this weekend before repeating the fixture in the cup later in the week.

A 3-0 thrashing of Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday night booked our place into the next round.

Brighton have comfortably booked their place into the fourth round with a 4-0 thrashing of Portsmouth in their opening tie and then a 2-0 win at Preston North End on Wednesday.

It has now been confirmed that our second trip to the AMEX Stadium will be on Wednesday 30 September, four days after our Premier League clash.

The Seagulls opened their league campaign with a 1-3 loss at home to Chelsea before thrashing Newcastle United 3-0 last weekend.
