Manchester United travel to Brighton and Hove Albion this afternoon as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side look to continue their pursuit of a top-four spot.

United have enjoyed a successful restart, with four points from their two Premier League games and a place in the FA Cup semi-finals, while Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes have already formed a burgeoning relationship in midfield.

Brighton, too, are high in confidence having also claimed four points from their two league fixtures. Neal Maupay scored a stoppage-time winner against Arsenal before missing a penalty and another chance of victory against Leicester.

Those results have significantly bolstered the Seagulls’ hopes of survival, with six points now separating them from the relegation zone. However, they do still have fixtures against Manchester City and Liverpool to come.

Prediction

Brighton have played well since the restart, with a disciplined system and the ever-present danger of Maupay upfront. However, United will provide a far sterner test of their back-five than a blunt Leicester and erratic Arsenal. Pogba and Fernandes should have the quality to overrun the midfield while Rashford and Martial - fresh from his hat-trick last week - will capitalise on those openings.
