Manchester United XI vs Brighton: Confirmed team news, predicted lineup and latest injury list

2 min read

Victor Lindelof’s place is under threat as Manchester United look to respond to last week’s shock 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants an immediate reaction to his side’s opening day loss when they face Brighton on Saturday.

With Eric Bailly fit again and playing a full 90 minutes against Luton in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, Solskjaer has options as he looks to find a steady partner for Harry Maguire.

Lindelof was erratic against Palace, with United’s manager bemoaning the nature of the “sloppy” goals conceded and the general performance of his team.

Mason Greenwood should come straight back into the starting XI after starting on the bench last week.

United lacked energy and inspiration in the final third, with Daniel James failing to offer much threat on the right wing.

Solskjaer said: “I wasn’t happy with the game against Palace. We weren’t ready to play with the intensity we needed or the quality we needed.

“Then again, after restart, I thought we’d taken big stride.

“Once in a while a game lives a life of its own.

“Palace was very disappointing, but I am confident we can break teams down. We need more imagination to break teams down, that’s for sure.”

Man United predicted XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial
