.United are on 14-game unbeaten run, but go into that game in sixth place and five points behind Chelsea in fourth.Solskjaer added: “I think there are many teams in that battle for third fourth - Leicester, Chelsea, us, Wolves doing really well. Tottenham, Arsenal and Sheffield United want to put a run together and put a challenge in there.“It’s exciting for fans. We’ve been waiting for football that matters, we want fans in the stadiums, but we can sit back and watch exciting games.“The players are working really hard and want to do as well as they can and for me as a team we’re trying to implement our ideas. Talk about 14 games - we can talk about the next one, go into the next game knowing you’ve won the previous game and it’s a good place to be in.”Solskjaer added: “I think every year you’re in the Champions League is a great experience. For the players it’s a step forward. For us it’s what we’re striving to do - winning trophies and we need to focus on one game at a time.“There are so many teams that want that place. We can’t get distracted about looking too far ahead.”Manchester United predicted lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Williams; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial

Brighton have picked up two excellent results since the restart to boost their survival hopes, beating Arsenal at home before securing a point at Leicester.
United will have to be wary, particularly given the manner in which the Seagulls fought back from behind to beat the Gunners - but Solskjaer will be confident of a win if his side take the game to their opponents as they did to Sheffield United.
