Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Brighton & Hove Albion


Ready for the Brandon Williams show, Manchester United supporters? The youngster has racked some nice statistics and looked impressive in the Europa League competition. The promising academy graduate should likely start on Sunday against Brighton & Hove Albion, as United look to get a Premier League win before the next international break ensues.

Williams is pressed into action as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is forced down the depth chart at left back. Depending on last minute fitness situations, he may be forced to play third choice guys in midfield and defense as well. The good news is that maybe United have found something, a formula that kind of works in their 3-0 win at Partizan Belgrade last night.

“This is a little bit of a template on how we want to play, definitely,” Solskjaer said in postgame.

“No disrespect to Partizan, but they gave us spaces. Of course after we scored the first goal, they went forward.

“These boys are learning. Tonight will give them loads of pointers of how to play. Even though the opposition is not the same as in the Premier League, it was still good principles.”
