This is the Premier League match between Manchester United and Brighton - second against ninth.

Manchester United will look to close the gap to neighbours and Premier League leaders Manchester City, when they face off against Brighton & Hove Albion in matchweek 13, at the Old Trafford on Saturday. Paul Pogba made a scoring return to the team, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic also featured as the Red Devils welcomed two key players back into the fold.

'I would have to say Manchester City, ' said Ferdinand, after Manchester United's 1-0 defeat to Basel.

Of course, they are eight points shy of Manchester City at the top, but they seem to be the best-placed side to challenge their inter-city rivals, and Jose Mourinho will be counting on the incredibly competitive nature of the Premier League to force City into dropping some points along the way. We gave him [Rojo] a better condition and, when we put him in the Champions League match, he was really ready.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton said that his team must perform at a very high level and be fearless if they are to end United's unbeaten home record.

Brighton have never won at Old Trafford, but Hughton is not about to let that worry his team. The manager also confirmed that the Argentine is likely to be involved once again.


Supporters gathered outside the hotel to catch a glimpse of their heroes as they arrived at the luxury hotel in central Manchester ahead of their Premier League clash with Brighton on Saturday. Carrick recently revealed the reason behind his Manchester United injuries and in a long statement, the midfielder quoted, "After feeling odd during the 2nd half of the Burton game in September I underwent a series of tests". "I think when teams come up, the most important thing for them is that they have identity and they have a plan of how they play".

"Paul is still on this process where he can not reach the fatigue limit", Mourinho told MUTV.

Brighton & Hove Albion have no new injury concerns, with Steve Sidwell (back) the only player not training. "We started a bit slowly against Huddersfield, they got a goal and then another one".


And Ferdinand believes City have the best chance of the Premier League clubs to win this season's competition.
