Brighton vs. Man United live score, updates, highlights & lineups from Premier League

Manchester United travel to face Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday as they look to boost their European hopes ahead of next season.

Although it is still mathematically possible for United to get into the top four, such a scenario seems rather unlikely, with fourth-place Arsenal five points ahead having played two fewer matches. Still, the Red Devils will be aiming to ensure that they at least secure a place in the Europa League in their final two games of 2022/23.

Brighton, meanwhile, beat Arsenal and Tottenham last month but also suffered a heavy defeat to Manchester City. They are in ninth place in the table after 35 matches, and only a win will keep alive their faint hopes of a top-seven finish.

It has been a woeful season for United but they will be determined to finish the campaign strongly ahead of the arrival of new manager Erik ten Hag, who will take charge from July 1.

United secured a 3-0 victory over Brentford on Monday, while Brighton beat Wolves by the same scoreline in their last outing.
