Barcelona v Manchester United
Manchester United’s clash against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday has been hyped up as one of the biggest derbies in recent times. Old rivals, Manchester United and Manchester City, have come to dominate English football over the past decade but there is no questioning the intensity of this fixture. The two clubs met in an epic encounter last season which resulted in a 3-3 draw at Old Trafford. This year’s game will be much anticipated as it will be the first time these sides have met in the Premier League since September 2016.
Manchester United are currently second in the table while Brighton are 13th. Wayne Rooney will lead United out against his old club and they will be hoping to secure all three points to keep their title chances alive. Sergio Romero makes his first start for Manchester United since being displaced by David De Gea and Phil Jones is also included following his return from suspension. Brighton meanwhile have lost their last two games with Chris Hughton looking for a response ahead of this big derby clash.
Louis van Gaal made four changes to the side that drew 1-1 at home to Everton last time out with Juan Mata, Ander Herrera, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard all coming into the starting XI. With Memphis Depay cup-tied for PSV Eindhoven, Angel Di Maria starts up front alongside Rooney while Marcus Rashford drops to the bench where he may feature later in the game if Van Gaal feels he needs more attacking threat.

Liverpool v Barcelona
Liverpool v Barcelona Liverpool came into this fixture as the favourites, with their impressive record against Barcelona in recent years proving decisive. However, both teams have been in good form recently, and the game could go either way. Antonio Conte’s side have lost just one of their last six games in all competitions, while Barcelona are yet to lose in La Liga this season. In terms of individual players, Liverpool likely rely on Mohamed Salah more than any other player, as he has scored 14 times in all competitions this season. However, Lionel Messi is still a threat even when he isn’t scoring goals – he has scored nine times in La Liga this season.
Meanwhile, Brighton & Hove Albion F.C. will be hoping to cause an upset against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. The Seagulls are unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions and are looking to build on their successful promotion campaign from the Championship last season – they have already beaten Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur en route to the top flight. A win against United would be a major boost for Brighton’s Premier League ambitions – although it will be tough given that Jose Mourinho’s side are currently top of the table.
