With Cristiano Ronaldo back in the fold for Man U, there is plenty of scoring ability in the front lines. Ronaldo netted 18 goals in his first season back with United after spending six years with the club from 2003-2009 where he scored 84 goals including a league-leading 31 goals in 2007-08.
Erik ten Hag has taken charge of United and the former Ajax coach has bolstered his roster with some impressive signings. Christian Eriksen has joined on a three-year contract while ten Hag has brought in Lisandro Martinez with him from Ajax.
Brighton forward Leandro Trossard will likely garner the majority of the attention from United’s back line having netted 18 goals over the last three seasons including a hat trick in the final tune-up match against Espanyol last Saturday.
Over the last eight matches across all competitions, Brighton has notched just one win and has never tasted victory at Old Trafford.
