Manchester United 1-1 Brighton
Erik ten Hag has come in and made some changes to the way Manchester United set up and operate, signs of which have been evident in the pre-season. However, they are still far from the finished article, as was visible in their final few friendlies. Meanwhile, Brighton & Hove Albion, under Graham Potter, have grown into a good team and showed last season that they can go toe-to-toe with the biggest clubs.
Having trumped the Red Devils 4-0 in their last meeting, the Seagulls will back themselves to get a positive result at Old Trafford. It is a tricky one to call and could go either way, depending on which version of Manchester United show up on the day. A stalemate with shared points could be a viable outcome.
