Manchester United will look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Brighton at Old Trafford this afternoon.

Despite not featuring this season until the 1-0 win over Leicester City in September, Fred has now started seven of United's last eight games, helping us to secure progress to the UEFA Europa League knockout stages and the Carabao Cup quarter-final.

The Norwegian tactician has led the Red Devils to 10th spot on the Premier League table after four defeats from the first 11 games.

United were still enjoying the honeymoon period under then-interim boss Solskjaer when these two sides faced off last January, and they were able to pick up a seventh straight win in all competitions as a result.

Luke Shaw, Phil Jones, and Axel Tuanzebe are unlikely to be available for selection, with Paul Pogba, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, and Eric Bailly also out for the long-term. Manchester United have chose to completely defend and keep establishing themselves in their side of the park in their matches, a narrative which could easily see this match end up as a torrid 0-0 show.

Marcos Rojo and Harry Maguire started the mid-week game, with Maguire reportedly getting a knock.

Instagram to test hiding users’ likes starting next week
It was in April this year, that Instagram was first reported to be working on removing likes from its platform . He added that Instagram doesn't have any scientific proof that hiding likes will improve mental health.


The young left-back, who impressed against Partizan Belgrade and Chelsea, comes in for the suspended Ashley Young.

Fans could see Brighton control the pace and tempo of the game at Old Trafford, with United sitting back and absorbing pressure.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka should continue at right-back. McTominay reportedly told Solskjaer that he would be fit for the Premier League game, but the manager has his doubts.

A partnership akin to Brighton's marauds its way from the opposition as well with Scoot McTominay and David James being selected by us as we opt for a seamless blend of attack and defence from the side. 'We need to improve our league form, definitely'.

And when they square off against Manchester United today, Brighton will be well aware that ore of the same will see them easily salvaging something from this tie.
