After what seemed long a really long international break, Manchester United are back in action today as they host Brighton at Old Trafford.
United’s last match before the break was a 3-1 loss to Leicester City in the FA Cup quarter-finals so having two weeks to lament leaves them effectively fighting for silverware on just one front.
Most of United’s players returned to Manchester relatively healthy except for Anthony Martial who picked up a knee injury and is likely out for a while. Marcus Rashford’s and Mason Greenwood’s knocks do not appear to be serious enough to keep them out.
Really the biggest issue for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is who to give the number one keeper jersey to. David de Gea is back in contention following the recent birth of his child, but Dean Henderson has filled in nicely for United’s in their last six games.
