Manchester United team news

Harry Maguire has been pictured back in training this week and Ralf Rangnick has confirmed that the England international will be part of the travelling squad.

Rangnick also suggested that Edinson Cavani will be fit and has been training this week.

Marcus Rashford has been ruled out and Eric Bailly is a doubt, although he has fallen down the central defensive pecking order anyway.

Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba and Jadon Sancho will also miss out, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka also a doubt for the game.

Our prediction: Brighton v United

Brighton caused United problems at Old Trafford and could have got at least a draw.

United go into this game on the back of four away losses in which they have conceded 12 goals.

The performance against Brentford was much better than what has been served up lately, and a similar display should earn a win here.

It is hard to judge this game between two sides whose seasons are effectively over. Will that provoke attacking freedom or a more drab game played out at testimonial pace?

Our prediction: Brighton 2-3 United
