Erik ten Hag is set to take charge of the Red Devils for the first time in the Premier League
Manchester United begin their Premier League campaign against Brighton at Old Trafford on Sunday.
After enduring a poor season last time out the Red Devils are aiming to restore former glories under new manager Erik ten Hag. The Dutch manager is trying to infuse his own philosophy of creative football to rejuvenate a team that delivered decent results in pre-season. Manchester United won three matches, including an emphatic 4-0 victory over Liverpool, drew against Rayo Vallecano and Aston Villa and lost 1-0 to Atletico Madrid.
Brighton will look to draw inspiration from their 4-0 win over the Red Devils on the south coast last season back in May. The Seagulls finished the campaign in ninth in the table, their best-ever position, and ended on a five-match unbeaten run that included three wins.

Erik ten Hag is likely to give new signings Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez a start against Brighton after both the players enjoyed minutes in pre-season. The Danish midfielder featured against both Atletico Madrid and Rayo whereas the center-back featured only in the latter.
“I think they are fit enough to start,” Ten Hag told a pre-match press conference.
Cristiano Ronaldo made his first appearance under the Dutch manager against Rayo and could start again on Sunday.
“I had told you before: we planned with him for the season. We have a top striker and I’m really happy he’s here, he’s in the squad and we stick to the plan,” he added.
