    There isn’t much between these two sides, especially with Brighton as the home team.

    Forget the nervy affair at Wembley – this one could have goals.

    Prediction – 2-2 draw.

    What has Erik ten Hag said?

    Ten Hag said the Seagulls will have "huge motivation" to exact revenge on the Red Devils for the FA Cup semi-final defeat.

    I think everyone who is involved in top sport, if you get beaten you want to have revenge, and that is normal.

    They have a huge motivation to beat us but we have to match that. Not only match that, we have to do more.

    We have to show more, that we have more hunger than them to win this game. I think willingness, that is the word for tomorrow.

      Marvellous Mitoma

      Kaoru Mitoma has taken the Premier League by storm since establishing himself as a starter just before the World Cup.

      He has ten goals and seven assists in all competitions, but has not scored or registered an assist in his last five games.

      Remarkable Rashford

      Marcus Rashford remains the main man for the Red Devils, and if he scores tonight it will be his 30th goal of the season in all competitions.

      He has struck 16 times in the Premier League, and will be eyeing the 20 goal mark with six Prem games left to play.

      What is their form like?

      The hosts bounced back from the 3-1 defeat at Forest by crushing Wolves 6-0 last time out.

      United meanwhile have won four out of their last five Premier League games, and are unbeaten in that period.

      Welcome to Brighton vs Manchester United

      Manchester United travel to Brighton in a tasty Premier League match with so much on the line for both teams.

      Three points at the Amex would take United seven points clear of Liverpool in fifth, with Jurgen Klopp’s side having just four games left to play, one fewer than Erik Ten Hag and Co.

      It would also put the Red Devils 14 points clear of the Seagulls, who have games in hand on every other team challenging for Europe.

      Tonight’s clash is a rematch of the FA Cup semi-final from just 11 days ago.

      And Roberto De Zerbi’s Brighton will be out for revenge after the heartbreaking penalty shootout defeat at Wembley.

      Although De Zerbi himself is a doubt for the game after he was forced to cancel yesterday’s press conference through illness.

      There is added motivation for the hosts as a win would secure a first ever league double over the Red Devils.

      The Seagulls, under Graham Potter, won 2-1 at Old Trafford on the opening day of the Premier League season in what was Ten Hag’s first competitive game as Red Devils boss.

      United have come a long way since then, but the Amex has not been a happy hunting ground for the club in recent years.

      The Red Devils have lost three out of their last five Premier League games there.

      But the chance to all but confirm a return to the Champions League after a season in the Europa League should provide plenty of motivation for the visitors.
