Manchester United will welcome Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford this Sunday as both sides try to get the better of each other in the opening weekend of this Premier League campaign.
Erik ten Haag could opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might instruct his players to dominate possession and create enough chances to win this game.
Graham Potter will set his side up in a 3-5-1-1 formation and is expected to ask his men to keep a good shape at the back and try to expose Man United’s weaknesses on the counter.
