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 Wednesday night's EFL Cup fourth round tie with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Manchester United face Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium for the second time in five days when the two sides renew acquaintances in the fourth round of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.

The events at the end of their Premier League meeting Saturday will still be sinking in after United rescued a last-gasp 3-2 win after the final whistle had gone, with VAR awarding them a dramatic and controversial penalty which was dispatched in the 100th minute.

A place in the fifth round of the EFL Cup is the prize on offer this time around, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will know that his side may not get away with another one unless they improve from the weekend's display.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the Red Devils' latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
