Sunday – Old Trafford – Kick-off 2:00pm GMT.

Brighton will go to Old Trafford this Sunday, hopeful of taking points in the first encounter between the sides this Season.

New season for Man U; they will try to reach new heights

During last year, Man U reached the 6th position in the standings after a hard year. For this season, they will have to step up their game if they want to succeed in the Premier League.

Last year the team did a good job, with a record of 57 – 57, and they hope that this year they will be able to step up their game.

Man U are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Erik ten Hag is concerned that Sunday’s fixture could see him without six of his key players.

A new season begins for Brighton; a new win will reward the efforts made on the preseason

During last year, Brighton reached the 9th position in the standings after a hard year. Regarding this season, they’ll try to improve their records with hard work to meet the requirements of the Premier League.

The 42 – 44 record last season means that the team is on track, but they must improve as a team, because the competition is more demanding every edition.

It is likely that one key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Graham Potter and his Brighton team.

In their most recent meeting of this fixture was May 2022, when Manchester United walked away as 4-0 winners.
