Manchester United’s latest new era kicks off proper this afternoon as Erik ten Hag’s makes his competitive bow as manager, against Brighton.

The new manager’s pre-season was dominated by the demands of Cristiano Ronaldo to leave but on the pitch he oversaw impressive wins during the pre-season tour of Australia, before more disjointed performances against Atletico Madrid and Rayo Vallecano closer to home.

But now the real work begins and Ten Hag will be desperate to bank all three points, against a Brighton side who continue to impress under Graham Potter but have now lost influential defender Marc Cucurella to Chelsea.

Man United vs Brighton team news

Man United vs Brighton prediction

Pre-season is never a good yard stick but United have looked like a more cohesive unit in Ten Hag’s early weeks in charge.

He will hope Ronaldo’s sideshow hasn’t been too much of a distraction, and his possible involvement will not upset the apple cart.

United have enough about them to see off Brighton, but Graham Potter aways has something to say against the biggest teams.

United to win 2-1.
