Mourinho to make two changes – Predicted 4-2-3-1 Manchester United XI to face Brighton

Manchester United will travel to the Amex Stadium this Saturday to face Brighton & Hove Albion. This match will be particularly crucial for the Red Devils since a win can secure our spot as runners-up for the season.

Meanwhile, things are not looking great for Brighton. Currently placed 16th in the league standings, the Seagulls could secure their top-flight status if they manage to pull off a shock win against the Red Devils. However, United will go into this game on the back of an intense win against Arsenal and they must be pushing for nothing but a victory.

Team News

Jose Mourinho will have a fully-fit squad to choose from but Romelu Lukaku’s inclusion is a slight doubt. With the FA Cup final coming up, Lukaku might be provided with some rest since he is suffering from an ankle injury.

Predicted Manchester United XI to face Brighton

Manager: Jose Mourinho

Formation: 4-2-3-1

David De Gea (GK)

De Gea has been rock-solid for United this season and he is expected to retain his spot ahead of this game.

Antonio Valencia (RB)

Valencia’s powerful runs up and down the flank can open up several opportunities for us. He will be an important presence against Brighton.

Phil Jones (CB)

Jones might come in for Chris Smalling after the latter was given a start against Arsenal. Although he did well, it would be advisable to change things a bit.

Victor Lindelof (CB)

Lindelof put in a stellar performance against Arsenal and he should be handed a start once more for the game against Brighton.

Ashley Young (LB)

Young has been one of our most prolific defenders this season and he is expected to hold onto his spot for this game.

Nemanja Matic (DM)

Matic’s influence from the centre of the park has been instrumental in a lot of our successes and he is a sure-shot starter for the game against Brighton.

Ander Herrera (DM)

Herrera partners well with Matic and he is expected to hold onto his spot for this game.

Alexis Sanchez (LW)

Sanchez performed admirably against Arsenal and he is likely to start in his usual left-wing role on Saturday.

Paul Pogba (AM)

Pogba’s creativity will be important for us against Brighton, making it imperative for him to start.

Jesse Lingard (RW)

Lingard is quite a force to be reckoned with on the right-wing and that should prompt Mourinho to hand him a start for the weekend clash.

Marcus Rashford (ST)

With Lukaku’s inclusion doubtful, Rashford might be allotted a chance to lead the line. He is one our most promising players and has worked wonders in this role in the past.
