PREVIEW: Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester United

Brighton & Hove Albion will be hoping to quickly move on from last weekend’s mauling by Everton when they take on Manchester United at The People’s Pension Stadium on Sunday.

Albion’s four-game winning streak came to an abrupt end as Everton ran out 5-0 winners in Crawley.

Ahead of her side’s latest fixture, Brighton & Hove Albion manager Hope Powell has called on her players to bounce back in style from last weekend’s disappointing defeat to Everton. Powell may opt to make some subtle changes to her side with the likes of Nora Heroum, Rianna Jarrett and Kayleigh Green pushing for recalls.

Manchester United boss Casey Stoney will again be without long term absentees Tobin Heath, Alessia Russo, Leah Galton and Ivana Fuso for the trip to Sussex. Stoney is likely to name a similar starting XI to the one which defeated West Ham United at Old Trafford last weekend.

It was Manchester United who won the reverse fixture 3-0 at The Leigh Sports Village in October. Ella Toone netted a first half penalty before Russo and Jane Ross added further goals in the second half.

Brighton & Hove Albion’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Manchester United is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm tomorrow afternoon and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
