Manchester United are visiting the Amex Stadium for their second-to-last game of the season against Brighton this evening. The Reds will want to follow up on a good performance against Brentford, and the line-ups are out for this tie.
Despite returning from injury, Harry Maguire can only make the substitute bench for United after a solid defensive showing was on display against The Seagulls. Eric Bailly was also confirmed injured before the game by Ralf Rangnick.
Juan Mata makes back-to-back starts in the league for the first time since November 2020, with Bruno Fernandes continuing from the left flank.
Young talents Alejandro Garnacho and Alvaro Fernandez make the bench for the encounter, with the former likely to star at Old Trafford on Wednesday in the FA Youth Cup final.
United will be desperate to put on another solid performance after a disastrous season altogether. Brentford was the first time in a while that it was arguable that the Reds were playing good football, and it will hopefully be a similar situation in this encounter.
The starting eleven is unchanged and that suggests that Rangnick liked what he saw. The talent on the bench is what catches the eye of many supporters, hopefully the team are in a position so that the manager can afford to put them in.
