Predicted Man Utd line-up vs Brighton, Fernandes and Rashford start

Manchester United face off against Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup semi-final at the Wembley Stadium today.

The Red Devils suffered a huge disappointment in midweek as they were eliminated by Sevilla from the Europa League.

The La Liga outfit beat them by a 5-2 aggregate scoreline in the quarter-final following a comfortable 3-0 victory at home.

Erik ten Hag will want a strong response from his players today. They will have to play at their best to beat the Seagulls.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

David de Gea had a difficult outing against Sevilla in midweek. He was at fault for all three goals conceded.

Despite this, Ten Hag was supportive of him after the game and the Spaniard is expected to continue between the sticks.

In defence, there will be an enforced change from midweek with Harry Maguire suspended for the FA Cup semi-final.

With Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez sidelined, Luke Shaw is likely to be the makeshift centre-back alongside Victor Lindelof.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot look set to continue in the right and left-back positions respectively.

Casemiro and Christian Eriksen are expected to start as the midfield pairing for the third straight game.

Bruno Fernandes is back available after his European suspension and his creativity will be a big boost from the number 10 role.

Further forward, there could be a couple of changes.

Jadon Sancho lacked the cutting edge from the left wing in midweek and should be replaced by Marcus Rashford from the starting XI.

Antony will most likely retain his spot on the right flank but we may see Wout Weghorst lead the line with Antony Martial possibly injured.

Martial could not continue in the second half on Thursday after a painful knock to his knee. The Frenchman seems doubtful to feature against the Seagulls.
