Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says they're capable of completing the season unbeaten.

Manchester United is now at the sixth spot in the Premier League standings with 49 points from 31 matches.

Solskjaer's men, who are sixth in the Premier League, will face Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals, while they are on track to reach the Europa League last eight.

United beat Brighton 3-1 at Old Trafford earlier this season, but lost on our previous two visits to the Amex.


"The short answer [if they can go unbeaten] is yes, but the long answer is that there's more to it than that".

Brighton have also enjoyed a successful restart, with Neal Maupay playing hero and villain - scoring the victor against Arsenal and missing a penalty against Leicester - as the Seagulls have taken four points from their two games.

"I think all three that we have talked about have had a good development this season - but they can be so much better", he said ahead of his side's Premier League match at Brighton on Tuesday.

'To get out of this lockdown period is going to be fantastic but at the moment we have to deal with the situation as it is.


Manchester United has absolutely dominated Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League game between both.

United's predicted starting line-up: De Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Lindelof, Luke Shaw; Matic, Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes; Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood.

"You need competition for places at United".

"If you think you've got a divine right to be playing every game and are doing so well that we're not going to look for players to replace you, you're in the wrong place".
