The race for Champions League qualification continues on Tuesday as Manchester United head to the Amex to take on Brighton in the Premier League.
Graham Potter's men have enjoyed a bright return, beating Arsenal at home and drawing with Leicester at the King Power Stadium, but face a far sterner test in the shape of the Red Devils.
Following a slow start to the season, United have found their feet in the second half of the campaign and are currently enjoying a 14-game unbeaten run in all competitions.
Where to Watch
Brighton are still without winger Jose Izquierdo, who suffered a knee injury last May, while centre back Adam Webster, who picked up a hamstring problem at Leicester, may also be missing.
United will have their full first team available for the game, though Daniel James and Harry Maguire are each one yellow card away from suspension.
Brighton: Ryan; Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Burn; Stephens, Bissouma; Connolly, Mac Allister, Mooy; Maupay.
Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Pogba, Matic; Lingard, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial.
Both sides are yet to taste defeat following the Premier League's restart, with Brighton snatching a win against Arsenal and holding Leicester to a stalemate. United bagged victories against Sheffield United and Norwich in the Premier League and FA Cup respectively, and split the points with Tottenham in a 1-1 draw.
The recent form has seen Brighton all but secure their Premier League safety, while the Red Devils continue to close the distance between themselves and a Champions League spot. They currently occupy fifth spot, which might be good enough for Europe's elite club competition if Manchester City's ban is upheld.
Here's how both sides have fared over their last five games.
Leicester 0-0 Brighton (23/6)
Brighton 2-1 Arsenal (20/6)
Wolves 0-0 Brighton (7/3)
Brighton 0-1 Crystal Palace (29/2)
Sheffield United 1-1 Brighton (22/2)
Norwich 1-2 Manchester United (27/6)
Manchester United 3-0 Sheffield United (24/6)
Tottenham 1-1 Manchester United (19/6)
LASK 0-5 Manchester United (12/3)
Manchester United 2-0 Manchester City (8/3)
Although Brighton have been difficult to beat of late, United should have too much here. Solskjaer has finally found a winning formula and the club have started to show positive signs for the future.
It'll be another chance for United fans to observe the Pogba-Fernandes partnership and the Red Devils will edge even closer to a Champions League spot with victory on the south coast.
Prediction: Brighton 0-2 Manchester United
