Manchester United vs Brighton Preview 

   Manchester United welcome Brighton to Old Trafford in their seventh match under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Here is all you need to know ahead of the game. 

What are the team news?
   For Man United, Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling, and Marouane Fellaini will be unavailable, with Ole being hopeful that Alexis will be fit enough to play. As for the visitors, Izquierdo and Fernandes da Silva Junior are out, with Bissouma being a slight doubt. No side have any suspended players for this match. 

What does a win mean for each team?
  A win for Manchester United could narrow the gap to a Champions League position to 3 points, if Arsenal beat Chelsea at the Emirates. United are currently level on points with Arsenal at 41. For Brigton, a win would put them on 29 points and increase their chances of a finish in the top half of the table. 

What were their previous matches?
  United's last match came against Tottenham Hotspurs in which the reds claimed a 1-0 victory courtesy of a Marcus Rashford goal in the first half and a heroic performance from David De Gea. Brighton's last match came against league leaders Liverpool, in which they suffered a 1-0 defeat following a Mo Salah penalty. 

What happened last time out?
   Manchester United's last meeting with Brighton earlier this season ended in a 3-2 defeat, due to goals from Duffy, Murray, and Groß. Last time this fixture was played in Old Trafford, United got a 1-0 win thanks to a Lewis Dunk own goal. 

Anything else I should know?
Manchester United will be looking to extend their win streak to 7 games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and continue their good momentum approaching the PSG match. On the negative side, United's record against Brighton isn't the best, but I think that curse will end, my prediction is 4-0 United.
