United may not fully throw-off Seagulls' shackles
Brighton likely to adopt containment strategy
Man Utd v Brighton
Manchester United did not looked fully switched on when losing 1-0 to Basel on Wednesday but are having an excellent season at home and abroad and can stay in second place by beating Brighton at Old Trafford.
Last month United lost to Huddersfield, who were promoted alongside Brighton, but they are unlikely to encounter similar problems against the Seagulls, who are likely to adopt a containing strategy.
Brighton have looked strong in defence but are unlikely to hold out against a Red Devils side averaging 3.17 goals per Premier League home game this season.

Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Michael Carrick are injured while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not yet ready to start.
Midfielder Beram Kayal (broken leg) is back in the squad but unlikely to feature. No fresh injuries are reported.
Seven of Manchester United's last nine games have featured no more than two goals.
