On Saturday, Man United will play Brighton in the Premier League, and we’ll provide live match updates on this blog.
On Saturday afternoon, Manchester United will host Brighton at Old Trafford in the Premier League.
In their last four meetings, Brighton has outscored United 7-1 overall. Last season, during their most successful season ever, Brighton beat United twice in the league for the first time.
After a demoralizing 3-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates, United will find it difficult to return to winning ways because Roberto de Zerbi’s team finished sixth and qualified for the Europa League.
Early team news is that Mason Mount, Sofyan Amrabat, and Raphael Varane are all out due to injury. Additionally absent are Antony and Jadon Sancho, the latter of whom was prohibited from training with the first squad.
However, Victor Lindelof and Lisandro Martinez, who were both substituted against Arsenal, are healthy.

Amrabat blow confirmed by Ten Hag
Sofyan Amrabat won’t be available for Saturday’s Premier League match against Brighton & Hove Albion, according to Erik ten Hag.
Amrabat’s loan agreement with United for the entire season was finalized on the final day, but the midfielder was not registered in time to play Arsenal.
However, he did report to camp with his Moroccan colleagues for international duty until withdrawing last Thursday due to what head coach Walid Regragui called a “precaution.”
