Confirmed Starting XI: Rashford leads the line against Brighton as United look to extend run to seven matches

Manchester United take on Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League at Old Trafford this afternoon. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has won his first six matches as interim manager of the club, the first manager to do so, winning five Premier League matches and one Emirates FA Cup match so far. This will be his seventh game in charge of the club, which has entered a new era and for the first time since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, it seems to be a positive one.

Solskjaer has been boosted with the return to Eric Bailly, after a three-match suspension following his red card against Bournemouth at the end of December. Alexis Sanchez has also been training during the week, after missing out against Tottenham Hotspur last week in that victory that showed the real Manchester United at Wembley. The news that Anthony Martial is close to signing a new long-term contract at the club will also be a big boost for the supporters and the players – David De Gea next, please.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Dalot, Lindelof, Jones, Young;

Matic, Herrera;

Lingard, Pogba, Martial;



Romero; Bailly, Darmian; Mata, Pereira; Sanchez, Lukaku

This will be the 21st match between United and Brighton. In the previous 20 meetings, United have won 12, drawn five and lost three times. Two of the three defeats were in the last two meetings between the two sides; the 3-2 defeat at the start of the season and the 1-0 defeat at the end of last season, both at the Amex Stadium. United now have the confidence, ability, mentality and momentum to beat Brighton and that is just what they need to be doing. Come on UNITED!
