Wolverhampton Wanderers win over Aston Villa on Saturday saw them move up to 5th on the table, putting United on pressure as they'd need nothing than a win if their hopes for champions league qualification is still anything to go by.

Prediction

Brighton have been in good form since the resumption claiming four points which will go a long way to securing survival for them.  View pictures in App save up to 80% data. United are in excellent form themselves and they have to keep winning if they are to claim one of the Champions League places given the strong form of the likes of Wolves and Chelsea.

The records do not favour United coming into this game, and having to play 120 minutes on Saturday is sure not an excuse for OGS as we see them cruising to another resounding win.  View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

If Ole fail to use this formation, or maybe substitute anyone from this lineup then he should get ready to loose this game.
