Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Brighton & Hove Albion



Manchester United will travel to Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday for league clash against the Seagulls. A couple of key players to watch in this one are Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw, the two players who have been publicly called out the most (arguably) by manager Jose Mourinho during his time at United thus far.

Both players started in the season opening win over Leicester City, and both put in a man of the match level performance. Mourinho had praise for both.

“Pogba was a monster,” said Mourinho. “We thought maximum 60 minutes but he managed over 80. He made himself available and he was very good.”

“Luke’s [Shaw] game was very complete, even if I forget his goal. He made maybe one mistake defensively in the whole match. He just has to keep going.”
