Here are the TV and live stream details ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash between Manchester United and Brighton.
Manchester United return to the Premier League this weekend and host Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Old Trafford clash could see Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia and Christian Eriksen making their competitive debuts, while Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to be left out of the starting XI against the Seagulls.
The striker was absent from much of United’s pre-season, playing just 45 minutes against Rayo Vallecano before leaving the game at half-time.
Meanwhile, Graham Potter will face a tough test after joining Tottenham without Yves Bissouma, while Marc Cucurella may also be absent as he is reportedly close to a move to Chelsea.

Man United vs Brighton Odds
Bookmakers currently have Erik ten Hag as the favorite to win his first game as Manchester United manager at odds of 11/20 compared to Brighton’s 5/1.
A tie at Old Trafford is at 3/1.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo is rated 6/5 to score in the opener, although he is unlikely to start.
Manchester United’s last clash with Brighton was certainly one to forget after beating them 4-0 on the south coast in May.
Goals from Moises Caicedo, Marc Cucurella, Pascal Gross and Leandro Trossard gave the Seagulls a shock win and became their biggest win in the top flight, while it was United’s fifth consecutive away defeat.
Before losing last season, the Red Devils had a much better record against Brighton, winning all of their seven previous meetings.
Their last clash at Old Trafford ended 2-0 for the home side, with Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes clinching the three points to move them fourth in the Premier League.
