Manchester United take on Brighton in the Premier League this weekend. Here are four players they should certainly watch out for…

Kaoru Mitoma

The first player United certainly have to watch is the Japanese ace Kaoru Mitoma.

The lightning-quick winger has dazzled defences since he joined the Seagulls and has quickly become their most dangerous player.

He can dribble, score and assist. Aaron Wan-Bissaka will have to put in a performance like last season if they want to be sure of stopping him again.

Solly March

One of the Premier League’s most underrated ballers is up next. It’s Solly March.

We have no idea how he hasn’t had a call-up to the England squad yet, March consistently produces moments of magic.

You could argue that March will be more of a worry than Mitoma given United’s circumstances. Dalot will most likely be up against the 29-year-old.

Pervis Estupinan

The left-back has had an electric start to the new campaign, and it could be argued he’s the best full-back in the league currently.

The Ecuadorian is lightning quick, making that duo on the left-hand-side borderline unfair.

United will need to suppress overlaps, otherwise, Brighton will run amock and toy with the defence at Old Trafford.

Evan Ferguson

Last but not least, it’s Evan Ferguson.

It was uncertain as to whether the Irish forward would be back for the fixture, but The Athletic have reported he’s hopeful to return.

He bagged a stunning hat-trick against Newcastle and has cemented himself as one of the Premier League’s hottest young prospects.

As a United fan, he’ll be desperate to make an impression in front of the Stretford End. Who knows, this could be the game that impresses Ten Hag and encourages the Red Devils to go all in for the brilliant 18-year-old forward.
