As far as the Premier League is concerned, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side recorded a comprehensive 3-0 victory against Sheffield United in their previous league encounter.

Manchester United do not have any fresh injury concerns. Solskjaer has a fully fit squad at his disposal and should name a strong lineup after resting a handful of key players for the FA Cup fixture.

David de Gea should return between the sticks for the Red Devils, while the likes of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba should also earn recalls to the side.

Nemanja Matic could start in the heart of the midfield, allowing Pogba and Fernandes to combine and weave their magic from advances positions. Daniel James is also expected to be restored to the starting XI, as he looks set to take Mason Greenwood's spot in the front three.

Injuries: None

Brighton v Manchester United Prediction

Both teams have been in good form since the restart and are unbeaten in their last three Premier League encounters.

Brighton recorded their first Premier League victory since the turn of the year against Arsenal a week ago, as Neal Maupay scored a last-gasp winner to give Graham Potter a much-needed victory.

Manchester United, on the other hand, overcame their 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur with a 3-0 demolition of Sheffield United.

The Seagulls have been in good form, but Solskjaer's side should still leave the Amex Stadium with three points.
