Old Trafford will be the venue for the first competitive fixture of Erik ten Hag's Manchester United tenure as The Red Devils host Brighton in their first game of the 2022/23 Premier League TV schedule.


The Dutchman is hoping to bring the good times back to the historic club after his appointment ahead of the summer. Doing so will be no easy or short process, but ten Hag will hope to see some positive early steps on Sunday at the Theatre of Dreams.

It's hard to argue with the signings of Christian Eriksen, Tyrell Malacia, and Lisandro Martinez but at Man Utd, drama is never far away and the ongoing Cristiano Ronaldo and Frenkie de Jong sagas remain a dark cloud over the club at the moment.

Finally, we are able to turn our full attention to the goings on between the white lines and Brighton's visit to Old Trafford promises to be an enthralling Premier League contest.

Graham Potter can feel aggrieved that his side's performances did not translate into better results last term and it would not be a surprise to see them battling higher up the table this time around.

Sunday's game comes three months to the day after The Seagulls embarrassed Man Utd at the AMEX. That result will have damaged The Red Devils' pride and you have to feel there will be many players desperate for revenge. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Man Utd v Brighton on TV and online.

Our prediction: Man Utd v Brighton

Man Utd's dismal 4-0 defeat to Brighton in May was emblematic of the sour end to Ralf Rangnick's time in charge, and supporters will hope that victory on the opening day can be an omen of the good times to come under the German's replacement.

The Seagulls have had a fairly quiet window but we shouldn't underestimate the impact of having managed to keep the majority of their squad together.

This will be a test for the hosts. A test of where exactly ten Hag's side are right now and what we can expect from them this term.

Our prediction: Man Utd 2-1 Brighton (17/2 at bet365)
