Confirmed Starting XI: Romero, Shaw, & Martial start; McTominay back in the team; Pogba & Sanchez benched

Manchester United face Brighton and Hove Albion in the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup at Old Trafford on Saturday evening. United have had some great results recently, beating Chelsea and Crystal Palace in the Premier League, coming from behind in both matches, then beating Liverpool last weekend, putting some distance between them and United.

On Tuesday night though at the Theatre of Dreams, United needed to beat Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League. They lost 2-1 after a very poor performance – a performance which saw the best of Romelu Lukaku and Eric Bailly, but showed a weakness amongst the remainder of the team.

Manchester United:


Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Shaw;

Matic, McTominay;

Mata, Lingard, Martial;



De Gea; Lindelof, Young; Pogba, Fellaini; Sanchez, Rashford

Manchester United and Brighton and Hove Albion have played 17 times in the history of both clubs. The first match was played on the 16th January 1909 – a 1-0 victory for United in the FA Cup.

United have won 11 times, drawn five times and been defeated just once – a 1-0 defeat in the old Football League Division One on the 6th November 1982 – exactly four years before Sir Alex Ferguson was named the manager of the Old Trafford club.

United have beaten Brighton at Old Trafford earlier this season, a 1-0 victory with Lewis Dunk scoring an own goal. Jose Mourinho’s side will need to do that again, but in a much better way to bounce back from defeat on Tuesday.
