What channel is Brighton v Man Utd on? Kick off time and latest team news- 26 September 2020

Man Utd head to Brighton seeking their first points of the Premier League season

Brighton v Man Utd TV channel and live stream

Manchester United will hope to kick start their Premier League campaign at Brighton after losing their opening game of the season last week.


United, whose opening Premier League fixtures were the envy of their top-four rivals, lost 3-1 at home to Crystal Palace last Saturday.

And while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men earned a 3-0 EFL Cup win over Luton in midweek, all focus is on grabbing three points at the Amex Stadium here.

Brighton have started the season well, having recovered from a narrow defeat to Chelsea on opening day to stun Newcastle 3-0 last weekend.

The Seagulls will be confident of another scalp here on Saturday, which means the first Premier League match of the weekend could produce plenty of drama.

Brighton v Man Utd team news

Brighton: Yves Bissouma is suspended for the game after picking up a red card against Newcastle, while Dale Stephens and Aaron Connolly are rated doubtful.

Jose Izquierdo, Florin Andone and Christian Walton are all sidelined, but full-back Tariq Lamptey could return following a hip issue.

Man Utd: Axel Tuanzebe, Phil Jones and Sergio Romero remain out, while manager Solskjaer likely to make changes from the XI that beat Luton in midweek.

Donny van de Beek should start, with Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood likely coming back into the line-up.

Our prediction: Brighton v Man Utd

United were stung by Palace last weekend and Solskjaer will be wary of how Brighton controlled their most recent Premier League clash against Newcastle.

Don’t be surprised if United come out a little slowly here, which could help the Seagulls settle and test under-pressure goalkeeper David De Gea.

We’re likely to see goals at both ends at the Amex and United, while favourites, will be pushed all the way on the south coast.

Our prediction: Brighton 2-2 Man Utd
