Manchester United will be desperate to ensure they progress in at least one knockout competition this week when they host Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Saturday (7.45pm).

José Mourinho’s side were dumped out of the Champions League on Tuesday evening by unfancied Sevilla, leaving the FA Cup as their only chance of silverware this season.

Standing between the Red Devils and the semi-finals are surprise package Brighton. Chris Hughton’s men have grown into this Premier League campaign and find themselves 11th, comfortably in mid-table and seven points above the relegation zone.

United boss Mourinho will be without Ander Herrera (hamstring), Marcus Rojo (knock), Phil Jones (knock), Daley Blind (ankle) and Zlatan Ibrahimović (knee).
