Early Man United team news ahead of Brighton clash

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have a fully-fit squad to pick from when they play away to Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on Tuesday night. 

The Reds needed extra-time to see off a stubborn Norwich City in the FA Cup on Saturday and will be rearing to go once again as they chase a Champions League spot.  

Solskjaer made eight changes to the starting lineup for the Norwich clash, with Sergio Romero, Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailly, Fred, Scott McTominay, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, and Odion Ighalo all coming into the line-up.

The Norwegian expects all those who started at Carrow Road to be fit for the midweek clash. 

“Apart from, of course, the after-effects of the physical work-out and coming back late, they had a recovery day yesterday and today will be an easy day and we’re just preparing for tomorrow,” Solskjaer told club media when asked if there were any injury issues in the Reds camp.

“I think the buzz and the energy that the win and a semi-final place will give you will help us tomorrow night.”

Luke Shaw has been impressive for the Reds in recent games, and Solskjaer hinted he could start yet again on Tuesday.

“We manage a squad, we manage players differently and Luke has had a good upturn in form. He's playing some good football, let's see if he starts this one,” Ole added in his pre-match press conference.

United have won one and drawn the other in the two Premier League matches they have played since action resumed on June 17th. 

They lie sixth in the table on 49 points, three off fifth-placed Wolves, who won 1-0 away to Aston Villa on Saturday evening.
