Brighton v Manchester United: Premier League – live! | premier league

6 minutes: Brighton are yet to win at home in the 2022 calendar year. Early exchanges suggest they are in the mood to change that today. Lots of possession.

4 minutes: Gross takes the corner long. Dunk goes up to the far post but, under pressure from Elanga, cannot meet the ball in any meaningful way. A confident start from Brighton nonetheless.

3 minutes: March waltzed to the right and won the first corner of the afternoon/evening. Brighton plays short and wins a second corner.

2 minutes : Brighton spend the first two minutes establishing a passing rhythm. Then Veltman splits the United defense with a pass down the middle for Trossard, who can’t control the first time. But the ball breaks to his right, and he defends one for Welbeck, who innocuously raises eyebrows.

United gets the ball rolling… but only after everyone took the knee to hearty applause from all corners of the Amex. There is no place for racism.

The teams are out! Albion are in their blue and white stripes, while United sport the first-choice red. Always an aesthetic treat when both teams can wear their favorite colours, a scene further embellished by the Saturday sun in such clear blue skies. We’ll be leaving in a few minutes.

Ralf Rangnick speaks to Sky Sports. “In possession, Brentford was one of our best games. We still had a few spaces defensively that we didn’t cover at times, but overall it was a convincing performance and we need the same today. We are playing away against a very flexible and technical team, so we have to be compact and hopefully have our counter-attacking moments. It’s important how we play for the team and our fans. As for not bringing captain Harry Maguire back into the team? “There was no reason for me to change a team that just won 3-0.”

Graham Potter talks to Sky. “Three games to go, and we want to try and compete for all the points. We start today against Manchester United, so it’s going to be an exciting game for everyone, but we want to finish strong. In an ideal world, you would like to get all your points home but you didn’t so we have to take them out Forty four points is good for us but we want more so it will be good to get some good performances at home. We will do our best.”

Both teams are coming off satisfying three-goal wins, so there aren’t many changes to report. Brighton made one, and it was imposed: Pascal Gross replaced Enock Mwepu, injured. Manchester United is unchanged. Marcus Rashford is ill, but Harry Maguire, recovered from a back injury, takes his place on the bench.

Preamble

Manchester United are on a seven-game winning streak against Brighton & Hove Albion. If they make it eight in a row against the Seagulls today they will be very close to securing Europa League football for next season. Brighton, on the other hand, have very little riding on this game, although a finish in the first half would be nice. They have won three of their last five games and are coming off a very impressive 3-0 win over Wolves. United, meanwhile, will be buoyed by a comfortable 3-0 victory over Brentford at Old Trafford last Monday. Kick off at the Amex at 5:30 p.m. It’s on!
