CLOSE! Mata finds Dalot whose cross falls to Pogba whose firm header is well wide.

Rashford is on for Ighalo.
BIG SAVE! Henderson dives to his left to keep out Trossard's first time effort from Gross's cross.
Pogba and Rashford are having a chat with Ole and are preparing to come on.
Gyokeres is on for Trossard.
Trossard is preparing to come on.
Mata concedes a free-kick after pulling Burn's shorts near the corner flag. Brighton play it short strangely and a cross is eventually headed away by Lindelof.
The home side are enjoying a good spell of possession. They may need to up the tempo in the final third though.
Rashford and Greenwood made the difference after coming off the bench against Luton last week. Ole may have to turn to a sub to see this game out.
Lindelof appeared to loose his footing and brings down Mac Allister on the edge of the bix. He gets up to take it but blazes it over, what a waste.
CHANCE! United have a free-kick 25 yards out. Fred's drive is spilled by the keeper but gathers at the second attempt before van de Beek can pounce.
Maupay is on, what a game he had against United on Saturday at both ends of the pitch.
Jahanbakhsh looks to have injured his hamstring. His night is over.
Bernardo rounds Dalot and bursts into the box but Bailly is there and executes a good sliding challenege.

HALF TIME: United lead 1-0 courtesy of McTominay's header. The visitors had not created many chances before that while Brighton have had some decent opportunities.

- GoalScott McTominayManchester United
GOAL FOR UNITED! McTominay scores from the resulting free-kick, heading in Mata's cross. Brighton switch off.
Burn is booked for bringing down Mata 5 yards outside the box.
CHANCE! Quick break from the hosts. Jahanbakhsh twists away from Williams and fires in an effort which was always rising.
I've just noticed Gyokeres is on the pitch, he's been anonymous and completely starved of service.
The hosts are creating the better chances, Mac Allister is growing in confidence and looks a threat.
CLOSE! Bernardo wins the ball back deep in United territory and finds Mac Allister whose shot from the edge of the box ripples the roof of the net.
Williams wants a penalty after a collision with Veltman. The referee says no, looks to be correct.
James is cutting a frustrated figure on the left flank, looks low on confidence.
Brighton have conceded 3 goals in their opening 2 league games while United have conceded 5. But it remains 0-0 so far.
CHANCE! Fred fires an effort towards goal from around 35 yards out but its straight at the keeper. The Brazilian has not exactly been prolific since his move to United 2 years ago.
GOOD SAVE! Bernardo finds Mac Allister who finds Jahanbakhsh in space on the edge of the area, his low curling effort is well saved by Henderson.
McTominay and van de Beek have made a very quiet start in central midfield.
Potter's side are certainly msising the creativity of Trossard.
Brighton have a corner. Its played short to Jahanbakhsh whose cross is cleared.
Solsjkaer jumps off his seat, walks to the touchline and screams at Dalot to get forward.
United looking more likely to break the deadlock, WIlliams is getting a lot of the ball on his bursts forward.
CHANCE! Mata does well to trade passes with Williams and finds Ighalo who rounds the keeper and scuffs the ball into the side netting.
Another long ball, this time from Gross but its overhit. United are not defending a high line so not much joy for the home side with that tactic.
There is a lack of movement up front from the visitors. Fred tries to thread it through to Ighalo but its cut out.
There is no VAR tonight..
Good defending from Burn to put the ball behind for a corner after McTominay tried to trade passes with Ighalo.The set piece is headed across the box from Lindfelof and Brighton clear.
It's been even stevens. Brighton not dominating as they were on Saturday.
The home side are struggling to get the ball into their forwards early on. They have tried a couple of long balls.
The rain is lashing down now, skiddy conditions.
United enjoying more possession in the early stages than on Saturday. James is starting on the left and is up against Veltman.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF: We are underway at the Amex Stadium.
COUNTDOWN: 5 minutes till kick off!
United's dallying in the transfer market compared to Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City has clearly upset some former players.
Alireza Jahanbakhsh has been involved in 50% of Brighton’s League Cup goals this season, scoring twice and assisting one of the Seagull’s six goals.
Another day, another drawn out United transfer saga. Sancho, Dembele, Telles, Cavani,. Spin the wheel..
Graham Potter sticks with first choice defenders Dunk and White, only making the 9 changes. Brighton will be looking to avenge that defeat on Saturday given the number of times they hit the woodwork and that 100th minute Fernandes penalty.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made 10 changes from the side that beat Brighton 3-2 with only Lindelof retaining his place. And there are some interesting selections including Dalot, who has been linked with a move to AC Milan, van de Beek makes his first start and Ighalo.
