Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Brighton & Hove Albion

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Manchester United will be looking to make the perfect start to their 2022-23 Premier League campaign when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The match will mark Erik ten Hag's first competitive fixture in charge of the 20-time English champions, who will be bidding to secure a spot in the top four this season, having finished down in sixth last term.

The Red Devils played twice last weekend as they brought their pre-season to a close, losing to Atletico Madrid in Oslo on Saturday before drawing 1-1 with Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the team's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest with Brighton, who beat Man United 4-0 in their penultimate match of last season.
