In-between league fixtures, the round of 16 in the Carabao Cup takes place this week with a number of top Premier League teams still involved in the competition. Today's fixture list sees Manchester United travel to Brighton & Hove Albion for the second time in five days. Don't miss a moment with our Brighton vs Manchester United live stream guide.

These two sides will be familiar with each other after having met just this past weekend in the Premier League. United came out on top in that game with a controversial injury-time penalty securing the 3-2 victory.

In their opening league game, the Red Devils lost 3-1 at home to Crystal Palace with former United forward Wilfried Zaha finding the net twice, making it three points from six in the Premier League thus far. In the Carabao Cup, Ole Gunnar Solskjær's side saw off lower league opposition in the form of Luton Town to progress to today's fourth-round tie.

It's one win and two defeats for Brighton in the Premier League so far with that defeat to Man United as well as a 3-1 loss to Chelsea on opening day. In between those fixtures, the Seagulls beat Newcastle United and also won two games in the Carabao Cup against Portsmouth and Preston North End to get this far.

Graham Potter's men will be seeking revenge for the weekend's disappointing late defeat at the hands of Manchester United. Knocking the five-time league cup winners out of the competition would likely go some way to fulfilling that desire.
