  • Alternatively, stick right here with us on SunSport as we will be running a live blog.
  • Ronaldo hoping to kickstart year

    Cristiano Ronaldo starts up front again for Manchester United this evening despite not having scored in the club's last six games in all competitions.

    It's the Portuguese forward's worst goal drought in 13 years, and means the player has yet to find the net in 2022.

    Last month was the first time Ronaldo had failed to score a goal in the entirety of January since 2006, and this is now the latest into a calendar year he has gone without notching since first arriving at Old Trafford in 2003-04.

  • Seagulls flying on the road

    Brighton may never have won at Old Trafford, but they should take to the field tonight full of confidence given their away form this season.

    The Seagulls have won 19 points on the road so far this campaign, losing on just one occasion, 2-0 at Aston Villa. No other side in the Premier League have lost fewer away games than Graham Potter's men.

  • Late change as illness strikes

    Manchester United have been forced into making a change to their starting line-up this evening after Raphael Varane was taken ill.

    The Frenchman misses out and will be replaced at centre-back by Victor Lindelof.

    Reserve stopper Tom Heaton has been added to the bench just in case United require three goalkeepers to keep their half-time lead in tact.

    • On the Albion bench tonight

      23 Steele, 2 Lamptey, 14 Lallana, 17 Alzate, 18 Welbeck, 20 March, 24 Duffy, 25 Caicedo, 58 Ferguson

    • Bissouma returns to Brighton midfield

      Graham Potter makes three changes to the side that won at Watford, and there's a shift in shape too. The highly-rated Yves Bissouma is back in midfield while Pascal Gross and Leandro Trossard also return to the starting line-up; Adam Lallana, Tariq Lamptey and Danny Welbeck drop to the bench. The Seagulls dispense with three at the back to operate with a 4-4-2 that sees Joel Veltman shift to right-back.

      1 Sanchez; 34 Veltman, 5 Dunk, 4 Webster, 3 Cucurella; 8 Bissouma; 13 Gross, 15 Moder, 10 Mac Allister; 9 Maupay, 11 Trossard

    • Pogba on the United bench

      26 Henderson, 2 Lindelof, 4 Jones, 6 Pogba, 8 Mata, 10 Rashford, 14 Lingard, 27 Telles, 29 Wan-Bissaka

    • United XI - Fred and Elanga start

      Ralf Rangnick makes two changes to the side that started the match with Southampton on Saturday lunchtime. No sooner had he won his place back in the team, Paul Pogba is out again. The Frenchman drops to the bench and is replaced in midfield by the returning Fred. Marcus Rashford is also among the substitutes with his place in the forward line taken by 19-year-old Anthony Elanga. Cristiano Ronaldo leads the line at the top of a 4-2-3-1 shape for the Red Devils while the under-fire Harry Maguire captains the side.

      1 De Gea; 20 Dalot, 19 Varane, 5 Maguire, 23 Shaw; 39 McTominay, 17 Fred; 25 Sancho, 18 Fernandes, 36 Elanga; 7 Ronaldo

    • Splendid century up for Potter

      Graham Potter will tonight become the 74th boss in Premier League history to make it to 100 games as a manager.

      The omens are good for the Brighton gaffer too when it comes to commemorating the magic milestone against Manchester United.

      Three of the last four coaches to face the Red Devils in their 100th game have ended up celebrating with three points.

      Steve McClaren in 2004, Roy Hodgson in 2009 and Mick McCarthy in 2011 each oversaw victories against United with Sean Dyche proving the one exception in 2018.

    • Manchester: so much to answer for

      A trip to Manchester doesn't always meet with the approval of those travelling from the south, and that's especially the case for followers of Brighton - and it's not just due to the weather.

      Instead, it's because the Seagulls have NEVER won an away league game at either Manchester United or Manchester United.

      Albion have drawn three and lost 16 of their 19 visits to the two Manchester clubs in league competition.

      In Football League history, only Hull City have played more away games (24) against the pair without registering a success.

    • United odds on for success

      The bookies are certainly less keen on Manchester United than they were when this fixture was originally intended to have been played, but the Red Devils are still odds on favourite for the three points this evening.

      • Man Utd win 20/23
      • Draw 5/2
      • Brighton win 7/2

      Odds from Betfair correct at the time of publication.

    • Good evening from Old Trafford

      Welcome to our live coverage of Tuesday evening's Premier League match between Manchester United and Brighton and Hove Albion.

      Three days on from the latest nightmare at the Theatre of Dreams, the Red Devils are back in action again with yet another opportunity to take pole position in the race for fourth place.

      Ralf Rangnick’s men passed up the chance to move into the Champions League spots on Saturday after giving up a half-time up lead for the third game in succession.

      The uncertainty on the pitch has been matched by the speculation off it with Cristiano Ronaldo rumoured to be leading a revolt against interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

      There is some good news for United fans, however, with Fred available for selection again following his recovery from Covid-19.

      It was Southampton that departed with a deserved draw on Saturday, and tonight it’s the turn of another south coast club in Brighton.

      In stark contrast to their opponents, Albion arrive as the model of consistency and unity despite the big loss of Dan Ashworth and the loss of big Dan Burn.

      Graham Potter’s Seagulls have been beaten just once in their past nine outings in all competitions, and sit neatly in ninth place, only four points off the prospect of European football.

      Striker Neal Maupay has fired himself into form with his stunner at Watford on Saturday drawing him level with Glenn Murray as the club’s all-time leading Premier League scorer.

      It’s a later start than usual this evening with the action due underway at 8.15pm, and we’ll soon have confirmation of the two teams as part of our continued build-up to kick-off.
