Confirmed Man Utd line-up vs Brighton, Martinez starts in defence

Man United handed massive injury boost as Lisandro Martinez returns to training

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has named his starting line-up for the final game of the Premier League season against Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Red Devils returned to winning ways against Newcastle United at Old Trafford and they will be aiming to end the league campaign on a high with another victory.

The Magpies currently have a superior goal difference over United. They need to drop points against Brentford for the Red Devils to qualify for the Conference League.

Ahead of today’s game, Ten Hag has made a solitary change in the backline.

Lisandro Martinez makes his first start since his return from injury. He replaces Jonny Evans in central defence. Casemiro has been picked to partner the Argentine.

There is good news on the bench with Raphael Varane back in the matchday squad after an injury of his own.

Rasmus Hojlund scored after coming on as a substitute in midweek, but the Dane continues on the bench today.

United have had a poor season by their high standards, but they need a victory to keep up the momentum.

The club face arch-rivals Manchester City in the FA Cup final next weekend where they will be underdogs.

Varane’s comeback is a huge boost. The Frenchman could feature off the bench today to prepare for the big game.

Confirmed Man Utd line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Brighton: Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Martinez, Dalot; Amrabat, Mainoo; Amad, McTominay, Garnacho; Fernandes.
