In today’s Premier League match, Manchester United will take on Brighton, and here are five things to keep an eye out for at the Amex Stadium.
So you’re saying that there’s a chance of success?
According to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who loves to quote Lloyd Christmas, Manchester United would be three points behind fourth place on Sunday morning if they beat Brighton and Tottenham lose at Liverpool.
A steal at £3 million, Tariq Lamptey is a right-back who might be a target for Tottenham, as is Yves Bissouma, one of the league’s most impressive defensive midfielders. United would benefit from having any of the three players in their lineup.
After winning 4-2 at Leeds on February 20, United have lost their last four away games and have not won on the road since. That win at Leeds was arguably the season’s high point.
United were outplayed by City and Liverpool, while the Red Devils were stale at Everton in the middle. When they played Arsenal on their final away day, they were relentless in attack but profligate in possession, which has been a recurring theme since the domestic season began again in February.
Are there any plans for the Youth Cup?
Manchester United face Nottingham Forest in the FA Youth Cup final on Wednesday, and Alejandro Garnacho has been largely absent from the matchday squad in the last month. Because there are no Under-23 or Under-18 fixtures before Forest, United will have to decide whether to give Garnacho a proper run-out in a senior game or rest him for the match against the Reds.
Will Fernandez and Mejbri get a chance to speak?
It’s been a complete waste of time to keep Alvaro Fernandez’s professional debut on hold for so long, and Hannibal Mejbri has received a paltry amount of playing time despite the fact that almost every outfield player at Manchester United is out of form.

Aside from claiming assist from corners, Alex Telles has been relegated to the bench since April, and Bruno Fernandes has avoided being demoted despite having the worst run of form all season. The Portuguese-speaking players are likely to retain their positions, and Fernandez and Mejbri may have to wait up to 15 days before making their first-team debuts for Crystal Palace.
When it was 11 vs 11 at Old Trafford in February, Brighton were the superior side, but their form subsequently deteriorated significantly. In the last four weeks, they have defeated Arsenal, Tottenham, and Wolves, and coach Graham Potter has established himself as one of the most impressive in the Premier League.
What are your sources of inspiration?
It was in January of last year that United attempted to sign Moises Caicedo, but the negotiations became tangled, and the result has been Brighton’s gain. Caicedo was outstanding in his Premier League debut against Arsenal, and he has appeared in each of the four games that have followed.
