Predicted Manchester United line-up vs Brighton

Manchester United host Brighton & Hove Albion in today's late Premier League kick-off from Old Trafford.

The Red Devils had a disappointing end to the previous month as they were beaten by Leicester City in the FA Cup quarter-final.

They will be aiming to make amends with a victory over the Seagulls.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

Dean Henderson has started the previous six games for the Red Devils in all competitions. He looks likely to continue in goal, though David de Gea is available for selection.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw are the regular personnel in the Red Devils backline. Lindelof could miss the game with a back concern. Eric Bailly may replace him.

Both Fred and Nemanja Matic were poor against the Foxes before the international break. The former was at fault for the opening goal after a poor back pass to the shot-stopper.

Hence, we fancy a double change with Scott McTominay partnering Paul Pogba in the centre of the park. Bruno Fernandes is almost a certainty in the attacking midfield role.

Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood are available for selection after missing their international games due to injuries. They are likely to take up the left and right-wing spots respectively.

Anthony Martial is sidelined with a knee problem sustained on international duty with France. Edinson Cavani is pretty much guaranteed his place upfront. He has plenty to prove after a series of niggles.

Predicted Manchester United line-up (4-2-3-1): Dean Henderson; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba; Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Edinson Cavani.
