Brighton vs Man United team news and preview

There's an intriguing Premier League encounter in store today as European hopefuls Brighton take on fourth-placed Manchester United at the Amex Stadium.

Currently in eighth position, but with a number of games in hand over their top six rivals, a victory for the Seagulls would see them clock up three league wins in a row against Manchester United for the first time. 

A draw would meanwhile see them surpass their club record of 52 points in a top-flight season, which was set way back in the 1981-82 campaign.

There's also the added incentive for the hosts to claim revenge for last month's FA Cup semi-final defeat to United in a tense penalty shoot out – a close encounter which indicates just how little there's likely to be to separate these two sides tonight.

United come into the match having beaten in-form Aston Villa at the weekend – a result that leaves them just two points behind third-placed Newcastle in the table – and has strengthened their hold on a Champions League qualification spot.

The team sheets are in and Brighton have made four changes from the side that trouncedd Wolves 6-0 at the weekend with Alexis Mac Allister, Facundo Buonanotte, Moises Caicedo, and Kaoru Mitoma coming in for Joel Veltman, Pascal Gross, Deniz Undav and Solly March.

United have also made the same number of changes, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Fred, Antony and and Anthony Martial all starting, while Jadon Sancho, Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Marcel Sabitzer all drop to the subs bench.

How to watch Brighton vs Man United: live stream in the US without cable


Soccer fans can watch a Brighton vs Manchester United live stream on USA Network in the US, with kick-off set for 3pm ET / 1am PT on Thursday afternoon.

NBC is the official US broadcaster for the 2022/23 EPL season. Peacock TV live streams the vast majority of games, but some fixtures are shown on NBC and USA Network instead, as is the case here.

How to watch Brighton vs Man United without cable:

OTT streaming service Sling TV is reasonably priced and includes both USA Network and NBC in select markets, as part of its Sling Blue package. The usual cost is $40 a month, but if you're new to the service you can get your first month for half price.

Another over-the-top streaming service that includes USA Network and NBC in select markets is FuboTV. It's a much more comprehensive cable replacement, and carries more than 100 channels including Fox, CBS and ESPN.

Prices start at $74.99 a month after a FREE FuboTV trial.

If you subscribe to Peacock, Sling or any other US streaming service and find yourself unable to access coverage because you're out of the country, consider using a VPN as outlined below - we rate ExpressVPN as the best of the best.

We've set out how you can live stream Brighton vs Man United in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling for pleasure or for work, you probably won't be able to watch the game like you normally would at home. This is the result of geo-blocking - best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.
