Harry Maguire poked the ball home to secure victory against Norwich

Even though their league position might suggest otherwise, the 15th placed Seagulls will be a tricky test for United.

Graham Potter’s shape-shifters adapt to their opponents and in recent weeks have beaten Arsenal and drawn with Leicester, Wolves, and Sheffield United.

It could certainly offer a quandary for Solskjaer, who might need to use his first drinks break for a tactical reshuffle if his opposite number gets his starting plans correct.

The Norwegian is also looking for a response from Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, and Mason Greenwood having called out his star forwards prior to the match.

Solskjaer is hoping to be the man to bring Premier League titles back to Old Trafford and is making big demands of his players

“You need competition for places at Man United,” he said on Monday.

“I’ve been here myself for so many years as a striker and Teddy Sheringham comes in, Dwight Yorke comes in, Ruud van Nistelrooy comes in, Wayne Rooney comes in.

“If you think you’ve got a divine right to be playing every game and are doing so well that we’re not going to look for players to replace you, you’re in the wrong place.

“We’ve always got to look at improving, and if they don’t improve we might have to look somewhere else to get better because we have to be better. We’re too far away from where we need to be and want to be.

Rashford, Martial, and Greenwood need to start firing in the goals

“I’ve always had faith in the forwards we have at the club – Mason, Marcus and Anthony. They’ve all taken responsibility at different parts of the season and I’m delighted with all of them.

“I think all three have had a good development this season, but they can be so much better. I’m still waiting to see them blossom because there are parts of their game they need to improve on.

“They know I want the best for them, but they also know I’ve got to make decisions for the team and the club.’

Potter’s Seagulls only have one major fitness worry ahead of the game with Adam Webster being assessed.

He was forced off during the 0-0 draw with Leicester with a hamstring issue and may now be unavailable.

If so, it could mean a start for Shane Duffy as a direct replacement or Dan Burn could move inside with Bernardo coming in as left-back.

Tariq Lamptey is fit to start despite having stitches in a facial injury he picked up in the same match.

Having rung the changes at the weekend against Norwich City, Solskjaer is set to make more for this clash.

The likes of Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, and Odion Ighalo are set to drop out of the forward line as Rashford, Martial, and Greenwood all get their chance to answer their critics.

Paul Pogba should also return, along with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and David De Gea.
