With the first international break of the campaign now in the rearview, Premier League action proceeds this weekend with matchday five of 38. In one of the most tantalizing encounters of the lot, Manchester United will be looking for a much-needed three points at Old Trafford as they welcome Brighton to town.
The kick-off is scheduled for 10 AM ET on Saturday morning.

Below, we’ll discuss head-to-head history and preview the game.
