Man Utd have kept a clean sheet in 5 of their last 7 matches in the Premier League whereas Brighton have picked up just one win in their last six matches so picking up three points should not be a major cause of concern for the away side.

Since the restart, the Red Devils have stretched their unbeaten run to an impressive 14 games in all competitions and will be confident that they can extend the run against relegation-threatened Brighton.

Solskjaer, however, did not go with Rashford in the club's FA Cup tie against Norwich City which they won 2-1 in the extra time. Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, and David De Gea will get their place back for sure.

Solskjaer is "very happy" with how Maguire is progressing, but thinks there is still much more to come from a player who thrives on regular playing time.

"We've always got to look at improving". As he can not afford any more rookie mistakes in the league he will be looking forward to playing his best XI.

Asked whether Maguire will start weighing in with more headed goals as he looks to get on the end of dead balls, Solskjaer responded: "Definitely, and he should do". "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".

The Seagulls have a good record against the top teams this season. "And we know when Harry is in there then anything can happen".

Man United are now sixth on the league table but have played one game less than Wolves so if they can manage to beat the Seagulls on Tuesday then Solskjaer's men will move back to the fifth spot - within two points of Chelsea.

He added: "That's the normal routine for a Man United player".
