Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking to maintain his 100 per cent win rate as interim Manchester United manager as they face Brighton in the Premier League this evening. It’s been a perfect start for the Norwegian who has recorded six wins out of six since taking over from Jose Mourinho and next up are Chris Hughton’s Brighton who United lost against earlier in the season.
In team news there’s no Marouane Fellaini who has been ruled out with a calf injury and Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo are not fit enough to be involved as they recover from injuries. Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic both missed training earlier in the week for personal reasons but are available for the game.
Solskjaer’s found a winning formula already with his team selection and that’s something he should stick with as they welcome Brighton to Old Trafford. A time will come for rotation when there’s a return for two games a week but with such a big break between matches at the moment there’s no risk of fatigue and no need to switch things up, for now. United’s back four, helped massively by De Gea, managed to keep a clean sheet against Spurs so there’s no reason why they can’t deal with Brighton’s threat. While the forwards are clicking as a unit. The only thing to change would be the formation because Lingard isn’t needed in the role he played against Spurs.
