Manchester United's predicted lineup to face Brighton

Manchester United will welcome Brighton to their Old Trafford turf on Sunday evening hoping to pick maximum points ahead of the third and last international break of the calendar year. 

United have won only once in their last six Premier League games, and continue to languish in the bottom half of the table. 

Brighton, on the other hand, have been one of the surprise teams this campaign, and their wins over Tottenham and Everton have proved they are no pushover. 

They are eighth, six places above their Sunday opponents, but only two points ahead fo them and will prove a tough nut to crack.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have a headache picking his team for the test, but will hope to have one man fit for the tie; Scott McTominay. 

The Scot was injured in midweek against FK Partizan, but there is some hope that he might shake off the injury to feature in midfield, having grown into one of the most important players for the Norwegian in the absence of Paul Pogba.

De Gea is also expected to be back between the posts having been rested in mid-week in favour of Sergio Romero. 

Victor Lindelof will be available having missed the Europa League clash and will take his place alongside Maguire at the back. 

Aaron-Wan Bissaka will take his right-back spot, but with Ashely young suspended for the match having picked his fifth yellow card of the season, Marcos Rojo will be moved to start in the left-back spot. 

United's front three of Daniel James, Marcus Rashford and Antony Martial are fit and will be rearing to go. 

Man United Predicted XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Rojo; McTominay, Fred; Pereira, James Rashford, Martial.
