Our prediction: Man Utd v Brighton

Manchester United have enough firepower to blow Brighton away even if the likes of Rashford and Martial aren’’t fit enough to feature.

Don’t be surprised if Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba feature in the midfield, while Donny van de Beek and Fred should drop to the bench. Defensively United should be able to handle Brighton so this tie could be settled in the midfield.

If Solskjaer’s men can grab an early goal it will settle the nerves, but even if they have to wait until the second half, the likes of Bruno Fernandes and James should provide a winner at some point.

Our prediction: Man Utd 2-0 Brighton (7/1 at bet365)
