Manchester United is set to take on Brighton at Old Trafford today in a highly anticipated Premier League clash. The Red Devils are determined to bounce back from their recent heart-breaking loss to Arsenal, while Brighton is riding high on confidence after their 3-1 victory over Newcastle.
Both teams will have to assess their players' fitness after the international break. Brighton's teenage sensation, Evan Ferguson, who scored a hat-trick in their last game, faces a fitness test due to a knee injury. Meanwhile, Manchester United has several players sidelined with long-term injuries, including Raphael Varane and Luke Shaw.
Unfortunately, the match will not be televised live in the UK due to the Premier League's 3pm Saturday blackout law. Fans will have to follow the action through live updates and radio commentary.
Manchester United's new signing, Rasmus Hojlund, impressed during his debut against Arsenal and could make his first start today. Brighton will rely on Ferguson, who has been in exceptional form, to lead their attack.
Manchester United currently sits 11th in the Premier League table, with two wins and two defeats from their four games. Brighton, on the other hand, have won three out of their four matches, placing them in an impressive sixth position.
What They Said
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag praised his team's performance against Arsenal, despite the loss. He believed that officiating decisions and VAR played a role in preventing them from securing a win. Brighton coach Roberto De Zerbi expressed his belief in Ferguson's potential, stating that the young talent has the ability to become Europe's top goalscorer.
With both teams eager to secure a crucial win, today's match promises to be a thrilling encounter. Stay tuned for the latest updates and analysis.
