Chris Hughton

Picking the Best Potential Brighton Lineup to Face Man Utd in the Premier League on Saturday

Brighton will make the arduous journey north this weekend to face Ole Gunnar Solskjær's high-flying United side at Old Trafford.


The Seagulls currently sit in 13th place in the table and will look to keep a safe distance between themselves and the relegation zone in the coming months.


Chris Hughton will have a near-fully fit squad to select from for Saturday's tricky test, with Bernardo and José Izquierdo the only names on the injury list, whilst Mat Ryan remains on international duty with Australia.


Here's a look at how they could look for Saturday's game.

3. Goalkeeper and Defenders

David Button (GK) - The Englishman is relishing his spell in goal with Mathew Ryan away with the national team and has kept one clean sheet in his three Premier League appearances thus far.


Martin Montoya (RB) - Montoya is enjoying an excellent first season in England having joined the Seagulls last summer, and the Spaniard will be looking to make his fifteenth start of the season on Saturday afternoon.


Lewis Dunk (CB) - Dunk has made the joint most all-time Premier League appearances for Brighton, having featured 58 times in the top flight already.


Shane Duffy (CB) - No one has won more aerial battles or made more defensive clearances in a Brighton shirt this term than Duffy, who has struck up a formidable partnership with Dunk to concede fewer goals than United and Arsenal so far this season.


Gaëtan Bong (LB) - The 30-year-old has struggled for a consistent run in the team of late, having appeared in just three of their last ten games, but he will be hoping to make his second consecutive start on Saturday.

2. Midfielders

Dale Stephens (CM) - Stephens is enjoying a dominant season in Brighton's midfield and has made more tackles than any other player in their ranks this term.


Pascal Groß (CM) - The German has made 14 appearances in the league this season but will be disappointed to have contributed to just three goals so far, after having a hand in 15 last year.


Davy Propper (CM) - Only Lewis Dunk has completed more passes in the league this term than Propper, who is essential to how Hughton wants his team to play.

1. Forwards

Solly March (RW) - March has appeared in every Premier League game so far this season, and has registered more assists than any other Seagull with five.


Glenn Murray (ST) - Murray leads the way in Brighton's goalscoring stakes this term having notched eight in the league already and Hughton will once again rely upon the 35-year-old's goalscoring nous on Saturday.


Jürgen Locadia (LW) - The Dutch trickster has scored twice in his last four league appearances and will be eager to notch his third goal of the season at Old Trafford this weekend.
