Manchester United host Brighton and Hove Albion in the opening weekend of the Premier League season.
Last season’s 4-0 win at the end of the season will remain fresh in the minds of the Red Devils’ players, even though the dugout has seen yet another change.
This will be Erik ten Hag’s first game in the English top flight and he has a big task to bring United back to the top of the country’s football tree.
For Brighton, the loss of Marc Cucurella means money in their pockets but options needed before the transfer window closes if they want to progress from ninth place last year.
Here’s everything you need to know before playing.

What’s new from the team?
Anthony Martial’s injury means either a reasonably fit Cristiano Ronaldo or Marcus Rashford will start for United. Christian Eriksen is unlikely to start, having only recently joined. Lisandro Martinez could start in defense or midfield, with Harry Maguire being the player to line up in defense if it’s the latter.
Solly March was set to start at left after Marc Cucurella was sold to Chelsea on the eve of the season. Jakub Moder is the only injured absentee for the Seagulls, but Graham Potter has often switched his system from a back three to a back four so an extra midfield face could start this game.
MUN – De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Sancho, Fernandes, Rashford, Ronaldo
BRI – Sanchez, Veltman, Dunk, Webster, Lamptey, Mwepu, Gross, March, Trossard, Mac Allister, Welbeck
Man United 7/10
The Man United players have plenty of reasons to put up a great performance and result in this season opener and it’s not just because of the new manager. Last season’s dismal defeat should still hurt enough to force a reaction. United 2-1 Brighton.
