Brighton predicted lineup vs Man Utd

Brighton host Manchester United at the Amex Stadium on Saturday looking to keep momentum going from a good recent run of form that has put them back into the top half of the Premier League table in the final stretch of the season.

The Seagulls sit ninth ahead of the weekend but have never finished higher than 15th since their 2017 promotion, or indeed higher than 13th in any top flight season in their history.

Having lost six games in a row in February and March, that rise has come from Graham Potter’s side taking 11 points from the last 18 available to them – the only game they have lost in that run was against Manchester City, while they have beaten both Arsenal and Tottenham.

This is the starting XI Potter could pick to face United…

Robert Sanchez (G.K.) – 10 Premier League clean sheets so far this season already matches his tally from last season with a few games to spare.

Joel Veltman (CB) – You have switched between centre-back, right-back and right wing-back at times this season but has started virtually every game.

Lewis Dunk (CB)- Sent off against United in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford and hasn’t actually missed a Premier League game since serving that suspension.

Adam Webster (CB) – You have suffered with injury this season but could return to the starting XI for only the second time since recovering from a groin problem in early April.

Tariq Lamptey (RWB) – Another who could come back into the team. He only featured off the bench against Wolves after missing the previous game with a knee injury.

Yves Bissouma (CM) – Marked his return to the team from suspension with a goal last time out and will be keen to put in a statement performance here.

Moses Caicedo (CM) – Took a while to get into the team but hasn’t looked back since a big performance against Arsenal last month.

Marc Cucurella (LWB) – Can count this as a successful first season in England, having started every Premier League game since his arrival at the end of August – playing nearly every minute.

Leandro Trossard (AM) – He has given United headaches in the past and has scored three goals in his last four Premier League appearances.

Alexis MacAllister (AM) – Another Brighton in good shape. Netted against Wolves last time out, although that was his first goal in any competition since early January.

Danny Welbeck (ST) – In favor over Neal Maupay at the moment and comes into this one with three direct goal involvements across his last two games.
