Premier League football is back, with Manchester United taking on Brighton Hove Albion this weekend. Here’s how to watch, team news, head-to-head, odds, predictions and everything else you need to know about it.

Fans are massively excited for the new campaign, and for good reason – this Premier League is heating up to be one of the best in years. We have exciting new players such as Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez, new managers such as Erik ten Hag and returning giants like Nottingham Forest, so this season should have it all.

But for now, we turn our attention to Manchester United against Brighton – in what should be a cracking Super Sunday fixture.

Team News

A blow for Manchester United has emerged in the past few days as it looks like Anthony Martial will be out for the fixture. Cristiano Ronaldo may start amidst his ongoing transfer saga where he seems unsettled at the club.

As for Brighton, they’ll be without Jakub Moder and Kacper Kozlowski through injury. They also likely won’t have Marc Cucurella – who seems to be on his way to Chelsea.

Manchester United Predicted XI: De Gea; Malacia, Varane, Maguire, Dalot; McTominay, Fred, Fernandes; Rashford, Ronaldo, Sancho

Brighton Predicted XI: Sanchez; March, Veltman, Dunk, Webster, Lamptey; Caicedo, Gross, MacAllister; Trossard, Undav

Head to Head

This upcoming match will be the 12th between the two sides. United have won nine, and Brighton has won three. There have been no draws between the two sides historically.

Last five meetings in all competitions:

  • 7th May 2022: Brighton 4-0 Manchester United
  • 15th February 2022: Manchester United 2-0 Brighton
  • 4th April 2021: Manchester United 2-1 Brighton
  • 30th September 2020: Brighton 0-3 Manchester United
  • 26th September 2020: Brighton 2-3 Manchester United


The betting markets have Manchester United as their favourites.


A new Premier League season brings new possibilities – but we think this game swings one way.

United notoriously get off to a good start on opening day – THEN it’s usually all downhill from there. It’s Erik ten Hag’s first competitive match at Old Trafford, so he’ll be desperate to get off to winning ways. We think United will win this.
