Man United finished sixth in the table last season, some 13 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, while Brighton were ninth, picking up 51 points during an impressive campaign.
There is huge pressure on Ten Hag to start the campaign on a positive note, but this is a tricky affair for the Dutchman considering Brighton’s quality and the fact that they have an excellent coach. The Seagulls have been weakened by the departure of a couple of key players, though, and we believe that Man United will be able to start their 2022-23 campaign with a victory.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Dalot, Maguire, L Martinez, Malacia; Fred, McTominay; Sancho, Fernandes, Elanga; Rashford
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; Veltman, Dunk, Webster; Lamptey, Mwepu, Gross, March; MacAllister, Welbeck, Trossard
