WHAT'S OUR RECORD LIKE AGAINST BRIGHTON?
United have hosted the Seagulls six times in the league and are unbeaten in those encounters, winning five and drawing one. We’re also unbeaten in the five cup games we’ve played against the south-coast club at Old Trafford. Overall, the Reds have met Brighton on 21 previous occasions - the first of which took place in 1909 - and we’ve won 13, drawn five and lost three times. Last season, Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford’s first-half strikes earned a 2-1 victory when the Seagulls visited the Theatre of Dreams back in January.
WHO IS THEIR MANAGER?
Graham Potter was appointed the club's new boss on a four-year deal on 20 May, following the departure of Chris Hughton. The former Southampton player guided Swedish side Ostersund into the top flight and in 2016/17 they reached the Europa League Round of 32, but were knocked out by Arsenal despite winning 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium. He earned a move to Swansea City, where he managed our new signing Daniel James and led the south-Wales club to 10th in the Championship - narrowly missing out on a place in the play-offs in his only season in charge in 2018/19.
HOW DID BRIGHTON GET ON LAST SEASON?
It was a season of two halves for Brighton in 2018/19. Following a 3-1 win over rivals Crystal Palace at the start of December, they were 10th in the table after 15 games. However, a run of just two wins in the final 18 matches of the season dragged the Seagulls into a relegation scrap, one that they ultimately survived on the penultimate weekend of the season. Brighton finished the campaign 17th in the table, having picked up 36 points.
