Yves Bissouma is still suspended. So, we might see Davy Propper start in the centre of the park. He might be partnered by the young Max Sanders in the double-pivot.
We expect Potter to employ a 4-2-3-1 so there might be a rare opportunity for Pascal Gross in the number ten role. His creativity and work-rate could be critical against this Manchester United setup, though he will be supported by the wide attacking duo of Alireza Jahanbaksh and Alexis Mac Alister.
And finally, the Brighton attack is likely to be spearheaded by Neal Maupay, starting ahead of Aaron Connolly.
