Manchester United welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to Old Trafford this evening as the hosts’ pursuit of an unlikely Premier League title continues, while their visitors look to increase the distance between themselves and the bottom three.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United are second in the table, 17 points behind leaders and rivals Man City with nine games remaining – but with two games in hand over Pep Guardiola’s side. Brighton, meanwhile, sit in 16th place, five points off the relegation zone with a match in hand over most of their fellow strugglers. While United suffered an FA Cup quarter-final defeat by Leicester City before the international break, they are unbeaten in their last nine top-flight outings, while Graham Potter’s Seagulls are seeking a third straight victory in the Premier League following positive results against Newcastle and Southampton.

United may be lacking a cutting edge this evening, with Anthony Martial sidelined and fellow forwards Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood injury doubts for the fixture. They may be able to count on Edinson Cavani, however, and Bruno Fernandes – a frequent goalscorer from midfield – though Victor Lindelof could miss out in defence.
