Man Utd take on Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford on the 16th of September 2023 in the 5th game of the 2023/2024 Premier League season. Kick off is 1500 hours UK time.
United will be eager to rebound following their disappointing late defeat to Arsenal before the international break. United have seemed more like a television drama recently then a football club recently. Erik Ten Hag will be without Antony who is in Brazil after the announcement of his ‘period of absence’ and Sancho after he has been sent to train alone ‘pending resolution of a squad discipline issue’. Injuries have been a persistent issue for the Red Devils, with too many first team players to even mention on the sidelines.
Brighton will go to Old Trafford full of confidence after taking all 6 points last season. Young Irish striker and lifelong Man Utd fan Evan Ferguson should recover from a knee injury in time to play against United after his astonishing hat trick against Newcastle before the break.
