EPL: 2 Reasons Why Solskjaer Will Be Happy Ahead Of Brighton’s Clash


Manchester United welcome Brighton to the Old Trafford on Sunday in one of Premier League’s match-day 12 fixtures.

The Red Devils were defeated by Bournemouth last week but the Red Devils manager Solskjaer will hope to see his players return to winning ways against the Seagulls who have won just four League games this season.

In Thewistle’s build-up to the encounter, we provide two reasons why Solskjaer will be a happy manager ahead of the game.

  1.  1.The Return Of Victor Lindelof From Injury

The Red Devils were without the Sweden international as they thrashed Serbian side Partizan Belgrade 3-0 on Thursday due to a minor injury but he is set to return to action.

The centre-back has been a constant name in Solskjaer’s starting lineup and the manager will be happy to have him after the minor foot injury he sustained against Bournemouth last weekend.

  1. 2. Much Improved Attacking Prowess

Apart from the defeat to Bournemouth, United found the back of the net in all the matches they’ve played since the return of Anthony Martial from long-term injury layoff.

The Frenchman’s partnership with Marcus Rashord and Greenwood looks promising and Solskjaer will be happy to see his young players hit the right form at the right time.
