BT Sport kicks off gameweek three of the 2020/21 Premier League season with coverage of Manchester United's trip to the south coast to face Brighton and Hove Albion.

United's season got off to the worst possible start on opening weekend with a humiliating 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace. 

The result has piled fresh pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has been left frustrated by the club's lack of transfer activity. 

It was just the third time in Premier League history that United had lost the opening game of the season at home and represents a huge early setback in their ambitions to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City in the title race. 

Meanwhile Brighton bounced back from their own opening-day disaster against Chelsea to thrash Newcastle 3-0 a week later. 

The emergence of Seagulls right-back Tariq Lamptey has been one of the main storylines from the first few weeks of the season.

The ex-Chelsea man has earned rave reviews for his performances at right-back and the 19-year-old will be keen to test himself against United's front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood.

Will United get a much-needed victory to get their season back on track or will Brighton make it two defeats in two for the Red Devils?
