FT: Brighton 0-3 Man Utd. Goals from Greenwood and Fernandes (2) ease the visitors up to fifth spot.
Three minutes added.
Brighton change: March on for Connolly.
The Red Devils are a few minutes away from an eighth clean sheets in their last 13 Premier League matches.
So, United will move up to fifth - just three points behind third-placed Leicester, having played a game more. Brighton will stay 15th, six points above the drop zone.
Brighton change: Bernardo on for Dunk.
Brighton change: Mooy on for MacAllister.
UNITED CHANGE: James on for Rashford.

SAVE! De Gea beats away Maupay's deflected snap shot from 17 yards.
Connolly threatens to make a diagonal run in-behind and race through on De Gea, but Maguire steps across and mops up well.
CLOSE! Good feet from Trossard, but his 20-yard attempt flies just wide once again.
De Gea has had little to do, but is suddenly called into action to tip away Connolly's curved strike from the edge of the box.
A chance to reflect on that ruthless counter attack for the third as the players have a drinks break.
McTominay and Williams also come on.

United making a triple change.
CLOSE! The hosts almost pull one back with a quick free kick. Trossard catches United out on the left side of the box, but sees his low drive flash just wide.
That goal has knocked the stuffing out of Brighton. United are in cruise control again now.

GOAL! Fernandes at the double! The midfielder volleys home at the far post from Greenwood's cross after a lightning break.

- 2nd Half
KICK OFF! Brighton gets us back underway needing a major improvement if they are to find a way back into this contest.
- End of 1st Half
HT: Brighton 0-2 Man Utd.
Two minutes added.
Pogba terrorises Brighton on the right of the area. The Frenchman produces a lovely stepover before trying to lay on a third, but the home defence does enough to desperately crowd the middle and clear their lines.
And STILL it's all United. They looks so confident out there. Potter will be desperate to get his side in to regroup and rethink at the interval.
Replays suggesting the ball may have gone out of play as Greenwood looked to control in the build up to the second goal.
- GoalBruno FernandesManchester United
GOAL! The visitors double their advantage. This time Fernandes squeezes his first-time shot into the bottom corner after Pogba had recovered Shaw's cut back from the left.
Still all United. The hosts have offered very little since going behind.
Time for a drinks break. So far, so good for this man and his team.
VIDEO: Greenwood with shades of his manager as he gives United the lead.
Fernandes assumes responsibility from the free kick, but arcs his effort over the top. No worries for Ryan.
Bissouma charges into a clumsy challenge on Pogba 25 yards from goal. Free kick to United just left of centre.
VIDEO: Fernandes hits the post.
- GoalMason GreenwoodManchester United
GOAL! Greenwood takes Wan-Bissaka's pass and drives into the box before lashing a low shot into the bottom corner.
United dictating the tempo. Brighton are soaking it up and hoping to hit the visitors on the break. One-way traffic at present though.
OFF THE POST! Fernandes curls a low 22-yard shot against the post after nice play down the right involving Pogba.
STAT: Man United have only won four of their 15 league away matches this season. The fewest won by the Red Devils on their travels in a Premier League campaign is five, set in 2010-11.
Brighton engineer their first opening, but Stephens rifles a first-time strike well over the bar from 25 yards out.
United looking dangerous down the left in the early exchanges. Shaw rolls it into the feet of Martial, who doesn't quite have the time to take a touch and get a shot away before the block.
Potter spoke to Sky pre-match and was asked why he opted for Aaron Connolly over nine-goal Neal Maupay? The Brighton gaffer said: "Purely tactical, using Aaron's pace and I think Neal Maupay can help us off the bench. It is important to have players who can help finish the game as well."
HEAD-TO-HEAD: Brighton have won each of the last three top-flight home encounters against United. They are the Seagulls' only victories in the last 22 meetings between the teams in all competitions. The Red Devils will hope they are due a result here, having last picked up a top league win at Brighton way back in 1982.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! United get us underway.
Plenty of positive talk doing the rounds about United. They have won 10 times in a 14-game unbeaten run, but it's also worth noting that their tally of 49 points from 31 games is their lowest since the 1990-91 campaign. Still lots of hard work ahead for Ole and Co, who need 17 points from their final seven league matches to equal their points total of last season.
MARVELLOUS MARTIAL: In his last PL outing, Anthony Martial became the first United player to bag a league hat-trick since Robin van Persie in 2013.
STAT: Brighton are unbeaten in their last three matches. All of those games have been against sides in the top half of the table in the shape of Wolves, Arsenal and Leicester (the latter two since the PL restart). Indeed, the Seagulls have looked a more solid outfit, keeping two clean sheets in those three games, as many as they had managed in their previous 20 league outings.
Brighton boss Graham Potter: “I suppose there are bogey grounds. And I’m happy if the Amex is a bogey ground for Manchester United. But from our perspective, we can’t rely on that. My own personal view is that home advantage is significantly dropped because of the crowd. The crowd not being here is the main thing, the main advantage and that would have been nice for us, especially against the top teams."
Solskjær on whether United can go the rest of the season undefeated: “The short answer is yes but the long answer is that there’s more to it than that. Any Man United team should go into any game against any opposition believing they can win.”
And there's also this snippet on Jadon Sancho.
Plenty of gossip doing the rounds involving Manchester United. Catch up on our latest video looking at rumours on the continent.
