Predicted Man Utd line-up vs Brighton, Antony and Wan-Bissaka start

Manchester United travel to the South Coast for tonight’s Premier League clash against Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Red Devils returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at Old Trafford last weekend.

They are now inching closer to their aim of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

If United beat Brighton, they will need six points from their last five games to seal a top-four spot.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

David de Gea has moved clear in the Golden Glove race after keeping his 15th clean sheet of the campaign. The Spaniard will be aiming for another shut-out at the Amex Stadium tonight.

We anticipate a solitary change in the backline. Aaron Wan-Bissaka was tremendous against Kaoru Mitoma in the FA Cup semi-final and completely nullified the threat of the Japanese star.

He should replace Diogo Dalot at right-back. Victor Lindelof is expected to partner Luke Shaw in central defence. Tyrell Malacia should retain his spot on the left side of the back four.

With Brighton’s attacking credentials, Erik ten Hag should resort to a more defensive formation. Christian Eriksen could play in a more deeper midfield role alongside Casemiro tonight.

Further forward, we fancy a couple of changes. Jadon Sancho was largely ineffective against Villa from the left side of the attack and he could drop to the bench alongside Marcel Sabitzer.

Anthony Martial should lead the attack with Antony starting on the right wing. This obviously means Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes will start in the left wing and number 10 positions respectively.
