The Premier League returned to action on Saturday after the international break and the action continues on Sunday night with some crucial games lined up. Manchester United will host Brighton and Hove Albion at their home in Old Trafford this Sunday night. While Brighton would look to improve their position on the table coming into this game on the back of wins over Southampton and Newcastle United, Manchester United were shown the exit door at the FA Cup by Leicester City prior to the international break and would look to bounce back to winning ways.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will miss the services of Anthony Martial who sustained an injury during his time with France. In addition, Victor Lindelof is also likely to be out owing to a back problem. Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford, who had pulled out of England squad owing to injuries, should be able to recover in time for Sunday’s clash.
As far as Brighton are concerned, Aaron Connolly picked up an injury while on international duty and will not play a part in this contest. The likes of Solly March, Florin Andone, Adam Webster and Tariq Lamptey are already nursing injuries from the Brighton camp.
Ahead of their Europa League game against Granada, the Red Devils would look to gain some momentum and play their best football in this match. Although Brighton have a winning momentum, the difference between the two teams can be gauged by a glimpse at the League table this season. While Brighton were at one stage in the relegation zone and are currently at number 16, United even fancied winning the league this season at one stage. Placed number 2 on the table after Manchester City, United are favourites to seal a win in this game.
