Gameweek three of the 2020/21 Premier League season is already upon us, and today's fixture list sees Manchester United travel to Brighton & Hove Albion. Don't miss a moment with our Brighton vs Man United live stream guide.

It was far from a positive start to the campaign for Brighton & Hove Albion as they opened their 2020/21 Premier League season with a 3-1 defeat at home to Chelsea. The Seagulls bounced back a few days later with a 4-0 victory over League One's Portsmouth in the EFL Cup second round and an away win at Newcastle United in their second Premier League outing.

Graham Potter's men also saw off Championship side Preston North End in the EFL Cup third round in their last game to earn a spot in the fourth round. Their opponents in that cup tie are none other than Manchester United, so today's game will be a good chance to get the measure of them.

It has been a similarly mixed affair for Manchester United so far this season. The Red Devils faced defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace in their opening Premier League game. Ole Gunnar Solskjær's side did not look fit for that clash despite an additional week's rest following the late finish to the Europa League in the summer.

United did get a win in the EFL Cup, however, knocking out lower league opposition in the form of Championship side Luton Town. A partially rotated team impressed in that game with players like Eric Bailly and Dean Henderson staking a claim for a Premier League start.
