Manchester United should be well rested for their trip to the south coast today, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having made 10 changes in their mid-week cup encounter. Brighton, though, will be bouyed by their mauling of Newcastle. Here’s how to watch a Brighton vs Manchester United live stream, wherever you are in the world.
UK football fans can watch Brighton vs Manchester United on BT Sport in HD and in 4K on BT Sport Ultimate. In the US, subscribers to NBCSN can watch the game both on TV and stream it on the NBCSN live web player. Remember to use a VPN when trying to stream away from home in another country.
It’s played one, lost one for United and the Reds will be looking to kickstart their season at the Amex, just as they did in the post-COVID section of the 2019/20 campaign. Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones are the two injuries to consider but, otherwise, the squad is fully fit and looking to beat the Seagulls for the fourth time in a row.
Yves Bissouma is missing from the Brighton team sheet through suspension but Tariq Lamptey will be looking to continue his promising season so far despite looking to have taken a knock last weekend.
The match kicks off at 12.30pm on Saturday. Read on below to find out how to watch Brighton vs Manchester United in the best possible quality, wherever you are in the world.
