Man Utd v Brighton and Hove Albion: Is it on TV? channel, kick off time, predicted line-up

Manchester United continue their Women’s Super League campaign when they host Brighton on Sunday.

The Reds have made a perfect start to the season - sitting in second, Marc Skinner’s side have won both of their opening games, scoring six goals and conceding none.

On Sunday they face a Brighton side who, after suffering a 4-0 pasting at Arsenal in the division curtain-raiser, only edged past bottom-placed Reading with a 2-1 win before the international break.

With the table-topping Gunners not kicking off until Sunday evening, the Brighton clash gives the Reds the chance to claim top spot in the WSL with a win.

Team news

Star Manchester United striker Alessia Russo was forced to withdraw from Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses squad for friendlies against the United States and the Czech Republic with what was described as a ‘small injury’.

This week, Reds boss Marc Skinner confirmed that the attacker will not be available for the Seagulls clash.

“It’s her first session back on the training field today [Wednesday],” Skinner said.

“She won’t be available for this game, but we’re actually progressing really, really nicely and I’ve been really impressed by her attitude to this [injury].

“She’s grown up massively and I’m so pleased with the way she has approached it and performed in training. To have her back on the field even this morning with a smile on her face is a really nice thing.

“We’ll make sure she’s looked after and then she can come into the games when we know she’ll be fit and healthy.”

Man Utd XI: Earps; Battle, Le Tissier, Turner, Blundell; Zelem, Ladd; Garcia, Toone, Galton; Parris.

Brighton XI: Walsh; Fox, Williams, Kullberg, Pattinson; Bance, Olme, Lee, Sarri; Robinson, Terland.
