Erik ten Hag faces a tricky first competitive match as Manchester United manager when Brighton visit Old Trafford exactly three months after the Seagulls embarrassed the Red Devils with a 4-0 win at the Amex Stadium.

As a benchmark for United’s initial progress since Ten Hag’s arrival from Ajax in July, a meeting with opponents who thrashed them towards the end of a dismal 2021/22 campaign could prove instructive.

Brighton finished the season on a five-match unbeaten run that included three wins, securing their highest ever final position of ninth in the top flight. However, they have since lost key men Yves Bissouma and Marc Cucurella to Tottenham and Chelsea respectively.

The Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates and commentary from Old Trafford.

Manchester United vs. Brighton live updates and highlights

1 hour 40 mins to KO: Ronaldo played and was booked when Brighton unceremoniously turned over a dishevelled United towards the end of last season. Marc Cucurella scored and was the standout player in that 4-0 win at the Amex Stadium but has, of course, now joined Chelsea in a mega-money move. Also, Yves Bissouma joined Tottenham. How Graham Potter reconfigures his impressive team around the loss of those two key players might go a long way to defining the Seagulls’ season.

2 hours to KO: Whether he’s in the matchday squad or not, Cristiano Ronaldo will loom large on Old Trafford on Sunday. The fact that Anthony Martial has a hamstring injury presents an intriguing scenario that could involve Ronaldo starting, unless he’s left out of the squad for leaving a pre-season match early. In his pre-match comments, Ten Hag was keen to point of Ronaldo was one of several players reprimanded. A much-anticipated team sheet is an hour away.
