When is Brighton v Man Utd?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Tuesday June 30.

What time does Brighton v Man Utd kick-off?

The game is scheduled for an 8.15pm kick-off and is the only Premier League game scheduled for the day.

What is at stake?

It’s a vital match for both sides without question.

Manchester United are currently a few points off the pace for a top four finish and guaranteed Champions League qualification, and with both Chelsea and Wolves looking unlikely to drop points at the moment, the Red Devils can’t afford any slip-ups.

Brighton have done well since the resumption of the Premier League, earning four points out of a possible six, but there is still plenty of work to be done if they want to avoid being dragged back down towards the bottom three.

Where can I watch Brighton v Man Utd?

The match will be broadcast by Sky Sports.

Is Brighton v Man Utd free-to-air?

It is indeed. Sky has opted to make this game one of their free-to-air matches, which is rare for a game of such importance to both teams, and even more so when it involves Man Utd.

What is the team news?

Man Utd were in FA Cup action on Saturday, so expect Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to ring the changes to freshen up his side. Goalkeeper David De Gea is almost certain to come back into the side, and Marcus Rashford is likely to be restored to the starting line-up too.

Adam Webster is a doubt for Brighton, meaning Shane Duffy may return to the centre of defence alongside Lewis Dunk. Youngster Tariq Lamptey is expected to keep his place at full-back.

What happened in the reverse match?

Andreas Pereira, Scott McTominay, and Marcus Rashford gave Man Utd an academy-inspired 3-1 win over Brighton when the two sides met at Old Trafford back in November.

What are the odds?

It will come as little surprise to see Man Utd installed as 3/4 favourites to win this one. Brighton can be backed at 15/4, with the draw available at 15/4.
