Our prediction: Man Utd v Brighton

Man Utd’s dismal 4-0 loss to Brighton in May was emblematic of the sour end to Ralf Rangnick’s tenure, and supporters will hope the opening day victory can be a harbinger of good times to come under the replacement of the German.

The Seagulls have had a fairly quiet window but the impact of having managed to keep the majority of their team together should not be underestimated.

This will be a test for the hosts. A test of where exactly ten Hag members are right now and what we can expect from them this quarter.

Our prediction: Man Utd 2-1 Brighton (2/17 at bet365)
