Following a 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Friday at the Old Trafford, Manchester United will be looking to extend their winning run this Sunday when they come up against Brighton and Hove Albion this Sunday. United head coach, Jose Mourinho, is hoping to make it two wins out of two in the 2018-2019 Premier League season and mount a serious challenge for the English Premier League trophy currently held by their noisy neighbours, Manchester City. Paul Pogba could captain the Red Devils again after successfully leading them to a deserved victory over The Foxes on Friday. As for Brighton, a seemingly uphill task awaits them, having lost the opening match to Watford by two goals. They are hoping to use the home advantage to ease past a resurgent United at the Amex Stadium.
Although the possibility of a major upset is real, the Red Devils have beaten the Seagulls twelve times and drawn five times. Brighton, on the other hand, has beaten United only twice, the latest being a one-nil victory at the Amex in May this year. Chris Hughton’s side will be praying for a repeat performance against the Red Devils and pull a surprise on Jose Mourinho. However, it will be no consolation that United will be without Nemanja Matic, Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera and substitute shot stopper, Sergio Romero. Mourinho still has the iconic Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones at his disposal, and Romelu Lukaku looks set for a promising start after pulling a cameo against the Foxes. The Seagulls are likely to be without Jose Izquierdo, Bruno Saltor and Florin Andone.
