- The Erik ten Hag era finally begins at Man Utd after much anticipation over the summer with a home match against Brighton first up, an opponent they have beaten in seven of their last eight fixtures in all competitions.
- After an excellent pre-season, a hamstring injury for Anthony Martial rules him out, which is a huge shame for him and could open the door for wantaway forward Cristiano Ronaldo to play a part in this match, as United are desperately short upfront.
- Under the command of one of the most highly-rated head coaches in the Premier League in Graham Potter, Brighton are always enjoyable to watch, easy on the eye with plenty of talented players, but in such a competitive league it won’t be easy to match their ninth-place finish of last season.
- Potter confirmed in his pre-match press conference that midfielder Alexis Mac Allister has shake off a groin problem in time to play, but he’ll have to do without Jakub Moder, who is a long-term absentee.

Erik ten Hag dominated domestically at Ajax for a number of years, the Dutch giants most recently piling up 98 goals in the Eredivisie last season and he gives Man Utd fans hope that the glory days can return. Man Utd could be considered somewhat of an unknown quantity heading into this game, but Ten Hag is clearly a strong coach and the expectation is that United will dominate play despite facing a side who enjoy controlling possession themselves. A close contest is likely, but home advantage and that new manager bounce should work in Man Utd’s favour, so consider backing them to win via the extra security of the draw no bet market.
TIP: MAN UTD DRAW NO BET
