Man United vs Brighton: prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, results h2h

Anchester United’s latest new era kicks off on Sunday as Erik ten Hag’s makes his competitive debut as manager, against Brighton.

The new manager’s pre-season has been dominated by demands to leave Cristiano Ronaldo, but on the pitch he oversaw impressive wins on the pre-season tour of Australia, before more scrappy performances against Atletico Madrid and Rayo Vallecano closer to home.

But now the real work begins and Ten Hag will be desperate to collect the three points, against a Brighton side who continue to impress under Graham Potter but have now lost influential defender Marc Cucurella to Chelsea.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Manchester United vs Brighton is scheduled to kick off at 2pm BST on Sunday August 8, 2022.

Man United vs Brighton Team News

Cristiano Ronaldo is in contention to play despite intending to leave the club this summer, with Anthony Martial out after picking up a hamstring injury.

Man United vs Brighton Prediction

Pre-season is never a good yardstick, but United have looked like a more cohesive unit in Ten Hag’s first few weeks in charge.

He hopes Ronaldo’s show wasn’t too distracting and that his possible involvement doesn’t upset the apple basket.

United have enough to beat Brighton, but Graham Potter still has something to say against the bigger sides.

United win 2-1.
