While Manchester United is struggling, Brighton continues to thrive, making a strong start to the new season. They have won three of their first four Premier League matches and have scored an impressive 12 goals, more than any other team in the top flight so far.

Following a minor setback against West Ham United, Brighton bounced back with a convincing 3-1 victory at home against Newcastle United just before the international break. The highlight of the match was the performance of teenage sensation Evan Ferguson, who scored his first Premier League hat-trick.

While Brighton fans are undoubtedly excited about their upcoming first-ever Europa League match against AEK Athens next Thursday, Roberto De Zerbi and his team are fully focused on their upcoming clash with Manchester United. They aim to secure their fourth consecutive league victory against the Red Devils.

Brighton's recent away record in the Premier League includes four wins and four losses in their last eight matches. Notably, two of those victories came against top teams like Chelsea and Arsenal.

Brighton's challenging run of fixtures began with the Newcastle win, but they face tougher tests in the coming weeks. After their match against Manchester United, they will go on to play against Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Liverpool, and Manchester City in the league, with an EFL Cup clash against Chelsea and a Europa League trip to Marseille in between.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Martinez, Dalot; Casemiro, Eriksen; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund

Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Verbruggen; Milner, Webster, Dunk, Estupinan; Gross, Gilmour; March, Fati, Mitoma, Pedro
