BRIGHTON 0-0 MANCHESTER UNITED

1: Ready? Good because we’ve just started. It’s a pretty miserable evening on the south coast but a blustery 15 degrees won’t prevent us from having a drinks break at 22 minutes. I could rant about that for hours but I’ll leave it there for now. And DON’T get me started on the five substitutes…

Solskjaer – Three points is all that matters

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given his pre-match interview.

“This is the same team that played less than a week ago against Sheffield United and we played really well in that game. Hopefully we can again,” he told Sky Sports.

“Everything has to be right. We have been here the last two years and not got any points. We know it is going to be hard. We have to focus on one game at a time. “

Discussing Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes starting together: “It goes with football that you get used to each other, you get used to the way they want the ball and the way they run. We have Nemanja Matic’s experience behind them, we have seen something there but with Scott McTominay and Fred they have never let us down. I am in a good position.”

On their pursuit of Champions League football: “Three points today is all that matters now. you cannot look too far ahead. All eyes have been on this one and we see how we perform.”

Jadon Sancho latest

This is going to rumble on all summer… Well I suppose the mind games have continued and this one is a real doozy.

Sky Sports are claiming that Manchester United will not pay more than £50million for Jadon Sancho.

Borussia Dortmund are demanding in excess of £100m for his signature.

You seeing the problem here?

Obviously my opinion is irrelevant, but let’s take a quick look at the facts.

He’s only 20, he’s a regular England international, he’s scored 34 goals and provided 43 assists in 99 appearances for the German club AND he’s behind only Robert Lewandowski and Timo Werner in the Bundesliga scoring charts this season.

Am I missing something here?

On the box

TV coverage for tonight’s game is underway. Who’s in the studio? It’s Manchester United legend Patrice Evra and… Jamie Redknapp.

The first five minutes have been dedicated to Gary Neville going into hiding after Liverpool’s title win. I don’t hate it as much as I thought I would…

“Just watching the advert I realised how many of you lot (Liverpool fans/ex-players) work in this company,” said Neville. No response…

D’ya know

All five Premier League meetings between Brighton and Manchester United have been won by the home side, the most played Premier League fixture with the home side winning 100% of the time.

Twitter reaction

Lauren: Anyone else feeling nervous for the game tonight? We don’t have a good record away at Brighton. Really hope we keep the momentum going! Three points needed!

Rob: Brighton are going to be a tough challenge for Manchester United. I really want to see OGS play his best side and go after emphatic victories. Build confidence and momentum. There’s little room for rotation now. Get the job done in the first half.

Odiah: Another Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes masterclass tonight. I’m ready, are you?

Steady on, Odiah. I’ll ask the questions around here.

Brighton vs Man Utd LIVE: Score and Premier League latest updates

Who?

I know this has nothing to do with tonight’s match but it’s well worth a mention.

Carlo Ancelotti was asked why the club had decided to release Luke Garbutt after 11 years with the club.

And his response will forever be etched in Everton legend… “Who?”

In fairness to the Italian boss, Garbutt hadn’t played for the Toffees in over six years and never worked alongside Ancelotti.

Team news – Brighton

Graham Potter has made changes. He’s made three of them.

The Seagulls boss is without Adam Webster, who failed a late fitness test. So that injury sees the return of the iconic Shane Duffy/Lewis Dunk partnership.

Aaron Mooy and Neal Maupay drop out with Martin Montoya and Davy Propper starting.

Tariq Lamptey keeps his place having shaken off a knock. Think Chelsea may regret losing the 19-year-old.

Team news – Manchester United

Nice and simple. Manchester United name an unchanged side from the team who beat Sheffield United at an empty Old Trafford.

Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes continue their flourishing relationship in the middle of the park with Nemanja Matic providing the steel in behind.

No Jesse Lingard or Diogo Dalot in the squad again… but I suppose that’s not really a surprise after their weekend performances.

Starting XI

Apparently the Leroy Sane deal is actually £54.8million – but it’s still a bargain in my book.

Anyway, the team sheets have arrived and it’s pretty-much as expected. No changes for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Brighton XI: Ryan, Lamptey, Dunk, Duffy, Burn, Montoya, Bissouma, Stephens, Propper, Mac Allister, Connolly.

Subs: Button, Schelotto, Bernardo, Gross, Mooy, March, Trossard, Murray, Maupay.

Manchester United XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Matic, Pogba, Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial.

Subs: Romero, Bailly, Williams, Fred, Pereira, McTominay, Mata, James, Ighalo.

Leroy’s gone…

How’s this happened? I know it’s been on the cards for a while but I can’t get my head around it.

Leroy Sane will join Bayern Munich this summer. The Bundesliga giants are paying £41million for the 24-year-old, whose contract at the Etihad would have expired next June.

It’s a deal, it’s a steal, it’s sale of the… I’m not allowed to finish the Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels quote here I’m afraid.

Oh and in far less interesting news, Sandro Ramirez will remain with La Liga side Real Valladolid after Everton agreed to extend his loan.

They can’t all be winners…

Evening…

Hello everyone and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Brighton vs Manchester United from the Amex Stadium.

I hope you’re all hunky-dory on this miserable June day. Lockdown restrictions ease, pubs nearly open and the weather responds in stunning fashion…

Anyway, enough moaning.

The title may have been decided last Thursday (or back in December) but the weeks ahead offer plenty more excitement.

Champions League places are top for grabs and relegation six-pointers are in full swing. Tonight, we have a little bit of both on the south coast.

United, who are undefeated in 14 games in all competitions, are looking to clinch Champions League qualification while the Seagulls want to climb further away from the drop.

Plenty at stake, so let’s get going.

BRIGHTON vs MANCHESTER UNITED | TEAM NEWS

Defender Adam Webster will be assessed having suffered a hamstring injury against Leicester.

Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes are expected to start again against Brighton and will be joined by the rest of the usual starters.

Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic are likely to partner up in midfield, while Fernandes will be placed at No 10 between Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.
