Brighton vs Manchester United
Round two of the Premier League season sees Brighton host Manchester United.
Manchester United got off to a winning start to the 2018-19 season. Goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw earned United a 2-1 win over Leicester City.
Brighton lost their opening match of the campaign away at Watford.
Roberto Pereyra was the hero for the Hornets, as he scored both goals either side of the halftime interval.
Anthony Martial or Alexis Sanchez
Man United fans are now debating who Jose Mourinho should start against Brighton.
It’s important to note that Man United have a nine day gap between the Foxes and Seagulls.
That should afford Mourinho time to welcome back his full squad. Man United shouldn’t have any more World Cup absentees by the time the Brighton game comes around.
Perhaps the biggest conversation now focusing Man United fans is whether Alexis Sanchez or Anthony Martial should start on the left-wing.
The Chilean failed to impress many United fans during the Leicester game.
Sanchez helped Man United win their penalty early on against the Foxes. But the former Arsenal forward gave away possession too cheaply in a largely careless performance.
Could Martial do better? Many supporters believe so.
What changes should Mourinho make to the staring XI next week vs Brighton?
Young in for Darmian at RB as Valencia is still out?
Sanchez or Lingard at RW with Martial on the LW?
Lukaku back in for Rashford?

LOOOL If Martial plays half the nonsense Sanchez has played so far, he’d sit out the next 10 games.

Martial HAS to start ahead of Alexis next game
Only reason Alexis is starting ahead of Martial is because Alexis is Mourinho’s signing. Too much pride to drop his player for Martial. After putting in so much effort to sign Sanchez, it backfired & Mou doesn’t want to admit defeat
