Brighton v Manchester United: match preview

Brighton

Brighton lost 3-0 in the corresponding fixture in June and since then United have added the £35m Netherlands international Donny van de Beek to their squad. Joël Veltman, at £0.9m Brighton’s costliest signing of the transfer window thus far, is also a Dutch international and a former Ajax teammate of Van de Beek. Neither of the former colleagues are likely to start on Saturday, though, but if Tariq Lamptey fails a fitness test on a groin strain, Veltman may slot in at right wing-back for Graham Potter’s side.
