Man Utd v Brighton Premier League match on? Kick-off time, TV
Check out how to Man Utd v Brighton in the Premier League, including TV channel, radio coverage and kick-off time.
It has been a challenging start to the Premier League season for Manchester United, and visitors Brighton & Hove Albion will be hoping to pile on the misery this weekend.
The Red Devils have won both of their games at Old Trafford – a 1-0 success against Wolves in their opener before a dramatic 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest – but defeats at Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal leave them in the bottom half of the fledgling table.
Summer signing Rasmus Højlund could make his full debut after an encouraging cameo at the Emirates Stadium, but deadline-day arrival Sofyan Amrabat is a doubt and joins the likes of Luke Shaw, Raphaël Varane, Mason Mount and Lisandro Martínez as fitness concerns for Erik ten Hag.
It is not just on the pitch where Ten Hag has problems, as a spat with Jadon Sancho dominated the gossip columns during the international break, while Antony is delaying his return to training amid off-field controversy.
Brighton are the Premier League’s great entertainers with 12 goals from four games, and their three victories, including a 3-1 success against Newcastle last time out, means they are once again flying high. A positive result here would tee the Seagulls up nicely for their European debut on Thursday.
Manchester United host Brighton at Old Trafford in the Premier League today in dire need of a win. After such a promising time of things last season, Erik ten Hag’s team have struggled to convince since the summer break, losing to both Arsenal and Tottenham while being unconvincing in victories over Wolves and Nottingham Forest.
Few would doubt Roberto De Zerbi’s Seagulls will offer a stern test. Victors at the Theatre of Dreams last season, they have only got stronger since the Italian replaced Graham Potter and remain capable of beating any one on their day. It’s now getting to the point where a win in Manchester would not be considered a shock.
Jadon Sancho is the latest headache for Ten Hag to deal with as the England international trains away from the first-team, with the Dutchman needing a statement victory to lift some of the pressure. Follow all the action with Standard Sport’s dedicated match blog!
