The Red Devils needed extra-time to beat Norwich City in the FA Cup at the weekend, albeit with a much-changed team, but improvements will be sought by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
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.
“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.
“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.’
