Man Utd team news: Predicted 4-2-3-1 line up vs Brighton – Pogba and Fernandes start again

Manchester United will face Brighton tonight at the Amex Stadium and Express Sport is on hand with all the team news ahead of the game. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not dealing with any fresh injury concerns and will thus field a strong side as the Red Devils are still eyeing a top-four finish.

The Manchester giants are sixth in the Premier League table with only five points separating them from fourth-placed Chelsea.

Solskjaer will look to reduce the deficit when his team visits Brighton and will be without Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones, who remain sidelined with injury.
