4-2-3-1: Man Utd’s strongest possible starting XI vs Brighton

Bruno Fernandes Trains Man Utd

Manchester United won their first game of the season by beating Luton Town in the Carabao Cup and they will be hoping to earn their first win in the Premier League when they face Brighton in the early kick off tomorrow.

Last weekend, the Red Devils conceded three goals at Old Trafford vs Palace, on the other hand, the Seagulls scored three goal against Newcastle United.

As far as the team news is concerned, Solskjaer should make more than a few changes to the squad that started in the midweek league cup fixture.

In the goal, Henderson made his debut and kept a clean sheet but the English shot stopper might be replaced and De Gea could return to start in his place.

In the defense, the likes of Wan-Bissaka and Maguire may retain their starting positions, however, Lindelof could come in for Bailly and Shaw might replace Williams.

Record signing Paul Pogba and new summer signing Donny van de Beek should start in the central midfield for the Old Trafford club.

As far as the attack is concerned, the likes of Greenwood, Fernandes and Rashford should return to start behind Martial, who may replace Ighalo in the CF role.

Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 starting XI vs Brighton:


  1. Brighton are quite physical so it would be nice to see Bailly come in for Lindelof and to start with a diamond 4 in midfield, accommodating any one of Matic, Fred or McTominay, with Pogba, van de Beek and Fernandes, with Rashford and Martial as split strikers.

    In the last 30 mins, hopefully with a lead, Greenwood would come on with another midfielder, replacing two midfielders in a 4-1-2-3.

  2. Good playing by Maguire and Matic. Keep going and you all are doing fine. Only a bit of advise try to avoid the fouls as being booked too many times are not good.
    The defenders Luke Shaw Van Burcissa are playing well and need to still up the game.
    Try a bit running with the ball instead of standing and passing.

  3. Good playing by Rashford. I think the trust that Ole puts into these old players has got to do with some players. Bruno makes some mistakes but he is so very confident of putting that right in some other manner. Mason Greenwood keep trying and do that running, you will succeed. Keep defending well again. Alot of alertness by defenders Lindaloft and Harry Maguire.

  4. Martial needs more concentration to keep possession of the ball. Not too good. Man.Utd need to definitely need to hold to the ball. They need to bring in good more defenders.
