| Last Updated:


Evan Ferguson was previously listed as a doubt as Brighton travel to face Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Evan Ferguson has been on fire for Brighton so far this Premier League season, having scored four goals, including an incredible hattrick before the international break against Newcastle United.

His fitness, however, has been a doubt ahead of Manchester United‘s tie against Brighton at Old Trafford.

Ferguson pulled out of Ireland’s recent international fixtures due to a “sore knee”, and there has been little update since on his condition.

However, Brighton have now confirmed that Ferguson is back in training with a social media post boasting about his latest treble of goals.

Fortunately for United, Ten Hag has been provided with a positive fitness update as Lisandro Martínez and Victor Lindelöf are both declared fit to start the fixture.

There was doubt over Martínez availability after he was substituted against Arsenal due to an ankle problem and Argentina’s manager Lionel Scaloni confirmed he had not fully recovered last week, but the centre-back has been given the all-clear to play.

Lindelöf was also substituted during the North London tie due to illness, but has since made a full recovery and is expected to start alongside Martínez on Saturday afternoon.
