Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire should be fit for Man Utd after picking up knocks in the midweek win against Partizan Belgrade. Victor Lindelof could also return, although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did say the defender had not trained this week.
Paul Pogba remains out for the rest of the month along with long-term absentees Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Eric Bailly. Luke Shaw and Axel Tuanzebe are expected to miss out too, while Ashley Young serves a one-match suspension after picking up five yellow cards.
Brighton remain without Bernardo and Jose Izquierdo for the game on Sunday while Adam Webster will also miss out after damaging his ankle ligaments in last weekend's game with Norwich City.

Charlie's prediction: 2-0 (6/1 with Sky Bet)
Diogo Jota will return to the Wolves squad on Sunday. The forward missed the Europa League win against Slovan Bratislava through suspension and he is likely to start the match on Sunday.
Ryan Bennett (groin) is fit again but Morgan Gibbs-White remains a doubt with a back injury, while Willy Boly will not play again until next year after recently suffering a fractured leg.
Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish is rated 50-50, according to boss Dean Smith. The attacking midfielder has been struggling with a heavy bleed on a calf that forced him out of the Carabao Cup win against Wolves, and the agonising late defeat at home to Liverpool last weekend.
Keinan Davis remains sidelined with a hamstring problem sustained during the Wolves game, while for fellow striker Jota the game comes too soon as he continues his recovery from a hernia operation.
Stat of the match: Aston Villa beat Wolves in their League Cup meeting last month - they last beat them twice in the same season in the 2003-04 Premier League campaign.
How to watch: Wolves vs Aston Villa is live on Renault Super Sunday from 1pm; kick-off 2pm. Sky Sports customers can watch in-game clips in the live match blog on the Sky Sports website and app. Highlights will also be published on the Sky Sports digital platforms and the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel shortly after the final whistle.
Charlie's prediction: 2-1 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
Liverpool defender Joel Matip has not recovered from a knee injury and will miss the visit of Manchester City.
Virgil Van Dijk, who was absent from training on Thursday "for other reasons" according to manager Jurgen Klopp, is fully fit and captain Jordan Henderson has recovered from illness. Xherdan Shaqiri remains sidelined with a calf problem.
A thigh injury forced the number one off at half-time in the midweek draw at Atalanta and he has failed a fitness test ahead of the Anfield trip.
David Silva looks unlikely to play due to a muscular injury of his own and there are also doubts over Rodri (hamstring). Oleksandr Zinchenko, Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte remain sidelined.
Stat of the match: Since becoming Barcelona manager in 2008, Man City boss Pep Guardiola has lost more games against Jurgen Klopp in all competitions than he has against any other manager (7).
How to watch: Liverpool vs Man City is live on Renault Super Sunday from 4pm; kick-off 4.30pm. Sky Sports customers can watch in-game clips in the live match blog on the Sky Sports website and app. Highlights will also be published on the Sky Sports digital platforms and the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel shortly after the final whistle.
