Manchester United have no new injury concerns for the visit of Brighton & Hove Albion, although the squad could be rotated following the draw with Southampton.

Nemanja Matic remains doubtful due to a shin injury but Fred could feature after completing Covid-19 isolation.

I’d be delighted with a draw. There is so much quality in their attack that it will be hard to keep a clean sheet. But now is a good time to play them.... rumours of disquiet in the squad, the best ones want away....a temporary manager.
1 - 1 would be fine :albion2:

same as Spurs for me.

Every chance can go there and win but depends if we turn up and if we get some luck.

Wolves win there is a good blue print how to do it , even in that game Wolves still had to ride it out at the end.

If things go our way and we play as we can then we have a chance.

United 8/11
Draw 11/4
BHA 15/4

Those odds look about right
