4-3-3-: Fred starts, Young dropped in Man United probable line-up to face Brighton

Manchester United will be looking to make it two wins in a row when they travel to the south coast to play Brighton and Hove Albion. Mourinho would have almost full squad to pick from with Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones back in contention.

Brighton had a less than ideal start to the season losing their opener to Watford by 2-0 and would expect a response from his squad.

David De Gea is expected to man the sticks after making two world-class saves against Leicester underlining his reputation as the best in England.  The right-back position is between Ashley Young and Darmian.  The Italian had a torrid time against Leicester which could lead to Ashley Young holding the fort at the right back position.

Luke Shaw keeps his position after his match-winning performance against Leicester, while the centre back combination of Eric Bailly and Lindelof would continue.

The midfield three should remain the same with Andreas Pereira making a solid debut with some nice touches and good all-round display. Pogba would be looking to build on from his man of the match performance against Leicester and is the leader of the team.

Fred had a good debut in the first match with his dribbling and distribution skills on display but would face a sterner test against Brighting

Up front should be the usual suspects Alexis Sanchez on the left side cutting into his right foot with Mata bringing creativity from the right-hand side. Lukaku should lead the line after coming on for a bright cameo last week and would be needed against a physical Brighton side.
