Manchester United begin their Premier League campaign with a home game against Brighton on Sunday. The Red Devils are hoping that the Erik ten Hag era gets off to a good start after a disappointing last season.

The Premier League side looked strong in preseason but their preparations were overshadowed by the drama surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo and his desire to leave Old Trafford before the transfer window closes.

Manchester United vs Brighton preview

United are in the midst of a reconstruction under new coach Erik ten Hag.

Some new faces have been added to the squad over the summer, with the likes of Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia all coming in.

All three of those could start for the home team on Sunday and the club's fans will be confident of a better result than the last time they took on Brighton.

Graham Potter's team ran out 4-0 winners against United the last time they met, but a similar result will be a tall order this time around.

Manchester United vs Brighton tips and predictions

Man Utd are expected to put in another strong display to kickstart the new season properly so backing them to win half-time/full-time at 13/8 (2.63) may be a brave but smart bet.
