Solskjaer sets unbeaten challenge for Man Utd players

Bruno Fernandes

Bruno Fernandes remains unbeaten after 12 Manchester United games

United are on a 14-match unbeaten run as they chase a top-four finish in the Premier League and remain alive in the UEFA Europa League and FA Cup.

The Red Devils are heading into the match with a 2-1 victory over Norwich City in the FA Cup during the weekend. One, we've played quite a few good games against them lately and we know that we're competitive and have done really well against them and two, we have some really good momentum, we are building that and we're in good form.

As per a report in, Solskjaer had said last week that he was hopeful terms could be agreed to keep the midfielder at the club, but the United manager has now changed his tune ahead of the team's trip to Brighton in the Premier League.

Sitting five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, United's bid for a top-four Premier League finish continues on Tuesday when they visit Brighton and Hove Albion. The Spaniard replaces Sergio Romero between the sticks.

Paul Pogba is given a recall to start in midfield along with Nemanja Matic so Fred and Scott McTominay have to settle for places on the bench. The 24-year-old forward scored United's first league hat-trick since 2013 last week. Odion Ighalo drops out despite scoring at the weekend while Juan Mata and Daniel James are also named among the subs with Mason Greenwood starting in attack.

Manchester United predicted line up vs Brighton: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw; Matic, Pogba, Fernandes; James, Martial, Rashford.
