Hojlund’s Old Trafford debut and no Amrabat: Predicted Manchester United line-up to face Brighton

Predicted Manchester United line-up to face Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford tomorrow in a 3pm kick-off.

The Red Devils finally return to Premier League action and will be looking to put the stresses of the international break behind them by securing all three points against the rampant Seagulls, who have won three out of their four games played.

Roberto De Zerbi has confirmed that forward starlet Evan Ferguson will undergo a late fitness test to determine his involvement in the clash, while Ansu Fati is in line to make his debut.

Another full debut is on the cards for United, as Rasmus Hojlund looks set to start from the get-go for the first time. He made a 23-minute cameo against Arsenal to mark his maiden outing on September 3, and will now greet the Old Trafford faithful when he leads the line tomorrow.

Predicted United line-up


Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Martinez, Dalot

Raphael Varane remains sidelined and Erik ten Hag confirmed today that Victor Lindelof and Lisandro Martinez are fit.

Casemiro, Eriksen, Fernandes

Judging by this morning’s training footage release, Sofyan Amrabat wasn’t involved, so he may be forced to wait for his first appearance. He was sent home from international duty with Morocco as Walid Regragui wanted to take precautions with the midfielder’s injury, which he seemingly hasn’t recovered fully from.

Garnacho, Hojlund, Rashford

Antony and Jadon Sancho are unavailable for selection and as much as we’d all like to see Facundo Pellistri granted a starting spot, it’s more likely that the manager will utilise Alejandro Garnacho on the right and then bring the Uruguayan on later in the game. Hopefully, Pellistri will be given the nod next time around and the young duo can both balance the role equally.
