Manchester United face Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday by 4pm, hoping to inflict more pain on the Amex Stadium outfits, who lost their first match of the season to Watford last Saturday.

José Mourinho has had a week filled with reports of his unhealthy relationship with Paul Pogba but the manager will need to shake that off and prepare for Brighton’s challenge.

The Red Devils are going to be without the services of some key players including Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera and second-choice goalkeeper Sergio Romero.

Antonio Martial, who could still leave Old Trafford this summer, is set for another benching role, while young England striker Marcus Rashford could be pushed to the bench due to Romelu Lukaku’s return.

New boy Diogo Dalot is still out injured due to the knee injury he picked up in pre-season and he is set to miss some matches, including Sunday’s game.

England international players Chris Smalling, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones are back from world cup break but none of them are expected to make the Portuguese starting XI against the Seagulls.

Undoubtedly, David De Gea will be in goal while Eric Bailly, Ashley Young, Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof are all set to feature at the back of the pitch

‘unhappy’ Pogba, Fred and Pereira are all set to maintain their place in the midfield.

Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata and world cup returnee Romelu Lukaku are expected to complete the front three attack.

See Manchester United’s predicted Line-up in a 4-3-3 formation below :

De Gea ; Young, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw ; Fred, Pereira, Pogba; Mata, Lukaku, Sanchez.

Unai Emery

New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has called for more patience with club skipper Laurent Koscielny as he recovers from a long-term injury.

The Spanish tactician spoke about his captain with the club’s official website as he pointed out that the recently retired France international defender needs time to recover from the most difficult spell of his football career.

Koscielny, 33, has returned to light training with the Gunners after his Achilles problem but still a long way from featuring for the first team according to the former Sevilla and Valencia boss.

He suffered the injury in the last campaign during the second leg of the Gunners’ Europa League semifinal clash with Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid.

Arsenal lost the game 1-0 courtesy a Diego Costa strike and were eliminated 2-1 on aggregate to eventual winners Atletico who defeated French outfit Olympique Marseille in the final to win the competition.

The injury forced Koscielny to miss the French title triumph at this summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia and that prompted him to controversially announce his retirement from international football earlier this week.

According to him, he was disappointed with the way he was treated by the French national team manager Didier Deschamps while he was recovering from the Achilles injury.

Laurent Koscielny scored once in 51 appearances for the world champions.

Milan Skriniar

Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar has confirmed that he will continue his football career with the Italian Serie A side despite the overtures of Premier League giants Manchester United.

The Slovakian international centre-back was heavily linked the Red Devils during the summer’s transfer window.

Skiriniar, 23, spoke about the Manchester United interest and the desire to stay at Inter Milan in a chat with popular news portal ESPN as he pointed out that he’s flattered at the interest from Jose Mourinho and the former Premier League winners.

Portuguese tactician Mourinho requested for a new centre-back in the summer but he didn’t get his wish.

Apart from Milan Skriniar, Manchester United were also linked with other centre backs like Napoli stopper Kalidou Koulibaly, German World Cup winner Jerome Boateng, Atletico Madrid skipper Diego Costa, Leicester City defender Harry Maguire and Tottenham Hotspur star Toby Alderweireld.

Without a new centre-back, Manchester United have struggled defensively in the new campaign.

The Red Devils have conceded a whopping 14 goals in just eight games and they are the joint fourth worst team defensively in the Premier League this season.

The lack of defensive solidity has seen Manchester United lose three league games already in eight games.

Owen stated that the United game against Newcastle where the Mourinho side had come from behind to secure a win I worthy of note which will make the game a good one to see.

However, The West London side will hope on their fine record and a great form of Belgium star player Eden Hazard who has been the man for the team this season to fire again against their visitors.

Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is obviously not sorry about the description of the UEFA Nations League as being “senseless”.

This is because he has stressed on why it should be scrapped by the organizers, noting that it is at the detriments of the players and club.

Klopp is of the opinion that players who have gone through stressful fixtures be allowed to rest so as to return fresh during international break instead of involving in more competitive games.

In his latest statement, the German stated that the UEFA Nations League is a good idea in itself but has no space in football because there are lots of competitions to compete for.

According to him, its important players are given the space to refresh so that the games can be enjoyed by the spectators, citing that no one will watch an underperforming game in the stadium.

He noted that other sports have reasons to rest during the summer break like the American football but that is not the case for the round leather game which usually affects the performance of the clubs.

Klopp said he has his opinion and he stands by what he holds of the competition despite the disagreement by national team coaches.
