The online streaming of the Manchester United vs Brighton, English Premier League 2019-20 match will be available on Hotstar and Jio TV app.

United are facing the real possibility of missing out on European football entirely next season if they don't pick up their form soon.

The Red Devils booked their place in the last 32 of the Europa League with an emphatic 3-0 win over Partizan Belgrade courtesy the goals from Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, and Marcus Rashford.

Thanks to Opta, here are all the important facts and figures you need to know ahead of the Premier League clash. "We've got Villa, Spurs and City that week". Brandon Williams should replace Young at left-back as the 19-year-old was an unused substitute in the Europa League game.

A game at home to a team like Brighton would've been viewed as a guaranteed win for Manchester United back in the day, but it no longer seems as if that's the case. We always play to win, to leave with three points.

United were able to beat over Partizan during the week, but it may have cost them two key players in the process. They were also beaten by Chelsea, but immediately after that, they managed to stun a lot of people by dismantling Tottenham Hotspur 3-0.

Meanwhile, United now prefer to play on the counter-attack, with their best games coming when they didn't have much of the ball.

The Brazilian acknowledged the importance of cup competitions, before expressing his desire for United to be more consistent in the Premier League.

It's safe to say Manchester United have not had good performances during the league campaign.

"I think the fans deserve it and we owe them that".

Fans were anxious they were about to see more of the same when Marcus Rashford missed a few chances early on, but they eventually did get to see a goal when Mason Greenwood confidently slotted home from close range in the 22nd minute.

In fairness, if one was to give Fred the benefit of the doubt, he could've simply been speaking realistically as it would've been a bit silly to claim Manchester United would challenge for the title.

United should be cruising past the likes of Bournemouth and Brighton yet they could find themselves pointless if the horror continues on Saturday afternoon.

It'd also potentially make his teammates complacent if he said beating Brighton would be no problem but it's not a nice thing to hear nonetheless.
