Manchester United will try to get our 2020-21 Premier League campaign up-and-running on matchday two with a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion this Saturday lunchtime.
The Seagulls were beaten 1-3 at home by Chelsea in their opener before an impressive 3-0 thrashing of Newcastle United at St James’ Park last weekend.
We did the double over Graham Potter’s side last season.
The two lineups for today’s game are as follows:
David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba; Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Anthony Martial
Substitutes: Dean Henderson, Eric Bailly, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Scott McTominay, Donny van de Beek, Jesse Lingard
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made three changes from our season opening defeat at home to Crystal Palace with Timothy Fosu-Mensah coming in at right-back, Nemanja Matic in front of the back four and Mason Greenwood back into the attack four.
Donny van de Beek came off the bench to score a consolation last week. Our summer signing is back among the substitutes again today with only he and Jesse Lingard our attacking options.
Brighton & Hove Albion
Mat Ryan; Tariq Lamptey, Ben White, Lewis Dunk, Aaron Webster; Steven Alzate, Adam Lallana, Solly March; Aaron Connolly, Neal Maupay, Leandro Trossard
Substitutes: Jason Steele, Joel Veltman, Bernardo, Dan Burn, Jayson Molumby, Pascal Gross, Alireza Jahanbakhsh
The hosts appear to be sticking to their 4-3-3 formation today with Neal Maupay flanked by Leandro Trossard and Aaron Connolly in attack.
Impressive young Tariq Lamptey right-back has the tenacity to keep Marcus Rashford quiet, whilst Anthony Martial’s pace should be a problem for Lewis Dunk and Ben White in the middle of the Seagulls’ defence.
Adam Lallana and Solly March are goalscoring threats from central midfield.
