MAN UTD begin their new era under manager Erik Ten Hag in a home clash with Brighton.
United endured their worst season in Premier League history last term under the leadership of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick.

He’s also brought in a few new signings, including Lisandro Martinez for £45m from Ajax, and Christian Eriksen on a free from Brentford. – but the big storyline of the summer has been Cristiano Ronaldo’s desire to leave the club.
United will want to get things off to the perfect start when they clash with the Seagulls at the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday afternoon.
