The new boss becomes the eighth to lead Utd in the nine years since Alex Ferguson’s retirement, and he will no doubt be hoping for more success than his predecessors Ralf Rangnick and Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
He did not inherit the best squad, and had to adjust to the loss of a number of players including Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani and Dean Henderson. On the other hand, he brought in Argentine centre-back Lisandro Martinez from his old club Ajax, plus Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord and Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen, who was at Brentford last season.
There is still speculation regarding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the club as well, and it is possible he will play on Sunday, given that Anthony Martial is likely to be sidelined through injury.
Brighton, meanwhile, finished just six points behind Utd last season, their best EPL result. Even so, they lost two key players in the transfer market: Yves Bissouma to Spurs and Marc Cucurella to Chelsea. The £80m-plus they receive for both will allow boss Graham Potter to bring in plenty of new faces, but they are likely to line up against Utd in fairly familiar fashion.
Will the Erik ten Hag era begin with a bang or will Brighton once again punch above its weight? Find out by watching Man Utd vs Brighton live stream.
