Manchester United team news ahead of Brighton clash

Manchester United team news ahead of Brighton clash

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have virtually a fully-fit squad to pick from when they play away to Brighton on Saturday in an English Premier League clash. 

The Red Devils bounced back to winning ways against Luton on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup, managing to put the 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace in their opening fixture behind them. 

Solskjaer rotated his line-up for the mid-week clash, retaining only skipper Harry Maguire from the team that paraded at Old Trafford last weekend.

The performance against the Championship side though could be a worry for Solskjaer and will have a selection headache ahead of the tie.

Eric Bailly impressed against Luton, and so did Dean Henderson, who was starting his first match for the club. 

Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard too pressed their claims for a starting berth at the Amex Stadium, after assured performances in midfield.

The game was won following the late introduction of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, who both scored, and will most likely be in the starting lineup on Saturday.

United's only absentees are Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones, who are still out with injuries.

Tuenzebe, who has been out since December 2109, has however stepped up his recovery and was pictured training at the club's grounds.
