Manchester United face Brighton & Hove Albion tonight at Old Trafford in the rearranged Premier League clash.

The game between the two sides was originally meant to take place on Saturday, 18 December, but Covid-19 outbreaks in both camps resulted in the Premier League postponing the match.

Interim boss Ralf Rangnick has selected his United starting line-up for the game against Graham Potter’s Seagulls.

You can see how the side the German has picked compares to our predicted line-up here.

A win for the Reds will see us leapfrog West Ham into fourth spot and move four points behind third-placed Chelsea.

However, United are coming up against a Brighton side that are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League games.

Three points at the Theatre of Dreams would move Potter’s side above Tottenham into eighth place and four points behind United with a game in hand.

Potter will be hoping for a change of fortunes against United as he has lost all five of his previous meetings against the twenty-time champions.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be looking to ensure he doesn’t go seven games without scoring, is set to face Brighton for the first time in his career.
