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.

Talking Tactics

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.

Jakub Moder will definitely miss this clash because of injury. Otherwise, Potter should have a fully fit squad to choose from this weekend.

Brighton Predicted XI

Sanchez; Veltman, Dunk, Webster; Lamptey, Mwepu, Gross, March; MacAllister, Welbeck, Trossard

Key Men

Manchester United

Marcus Rashford will be Man United’s best hope for a goal this weekend. The defensive performance of Harry Maguire and Lisandro Martinez could go a long way in determining the fate of this contest.


Danny Welbeck will be desperate to score against his old club this weekend. Both Leandro Trossard and Pascal Gross will carry most of the creative burden for Brighton in the final third. Potters will expect the dynamic duo to deliver a decent performance collectively at Old Trafford this weekend.
