Brighton will host Manchester United in a Premier League match at the AMEX Stadium on the 7th Saturday.
Manchester United will visit the Amex Stadium after a convincing 3-0 win over Brentford. Fans finally had something to rejoice about last Monday. However, the Red Devils enter another must-win league game against the Seagulls.

They must recapture their peak form to complete the campaign in the top five.
Recently, Brighton has been in excellent form, beating top-ranked rivals like Arsenal, Spurs, and Wolverhampton. The Seagulls will try to keep up their winning ways by crushing the Red Devils.
