Man United’s Erik ten Hag era begins with a home clash against Brighton, who pulled off one of last season’s most memorable results when they beat the Red Devils 4-0 in May. With the Cristiano Ronaldo circus threatening to overshadow everything at Old Trafford, ten Hag is already a man under pressure, and a home defeat in the opening game of the season would set a predictable narrative.

Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Raphaël Varane were amongst United’s biggest underperformers last season, but hopes are high that ten Hag, who won three Eredivisie titles with Ajax, has the tactical knowhow and coaching ability to coax much, much more out of this squad.
Donny van de Beek could turn out to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Dutchman’s appointment, but he’s competing for playing time with Bruno Fernandes and new signing Christian Eriksen, two of the squad’s marquee players. However, both van de Beek and Eriksen seem much more suited to ten Hag’s favored patient, pass-and-move style of play than the maverick Fernandes.
Graham Potter led Brighton to a club record haul of 51 points last season, while playing some of the most attractive, inventive football in the Premier League. They almost certainly would have challenged for the European places if they had a clinical marksman to call on. Nobody in the squad hit double figures for goals.
Fans are hoping that German forward Deniz Undav, who netted 27 on loan at Union SG last season, can answer that call, and that Moisés Caicedo can fill the boots of Yves Bissouma in midfield.
