Manchester United v Brighton team news

Anthony Martial picked up a hamstring injury against Atletico Madrid last weekend and will miss this game.

It remains to be seen whether Cristiano Ronaldo will be the man to replace him, but he has been in training with the squad this week.

Luke Shaw and Jadon Sancho have recently been ill but they should be in with a chance of playing in this game.

Erik ten Hag has also already said that new signings Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen and Tyrell Malacia are all fit to start.

Our prediction: Manchester United v Brighton

United have to get their new era off to a winning start, but Brighton won May’s clash at the Amex Stadium 4-0 and will be tough opponents.

It will be a test of United’s new pressing game to stop Graham Potter’s side playing their football and getting into passing patterns.

The players should be full of energy and running, while the fans should be keen to support them in full voice.

We’ll go for 2-0 victory to kick off the Ten Hag era and generate some much-needed momentum.
