That’s the decision of BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson, who is tipping the Red Devils to overcome the Seagulls 2-Zero.
United can be having a look to dance again from Wednesday evening’s Champions League defeat to Basel once they welcome Brighton to Old Trafford.
And getting 3 issues is necessary if they’re to near the space on Premier League leaders Manchester City, who’re already 8 forward of them.
United have regained one of the crucial fluency that made them so potent firstly of the season since Pogba returned from a hamstring damage.
And Lawrenson believes the Frenchman can be instrumental in striking Chris Hughton’s Brighton to the sword.
“Brighton look as if they belong in the Premier League – with the manner of Monday’s draw with Stoke being further proof of that,” Lawrenson defined to BBC Sport after predicting a 2-Zero house win.
“The method the Seagulls got here again for some degree after two times going in the back of presentations their trust along side the nature and organisation I’d go together with a Chris Hughton aspect.
“Even so, for them to visit Old Trafford and get one thing is an extraordinarily giant ask.
“Paul Pogba added a distinct size to Manchester United’s assault when he returned from damage towards Newcastle and he galvanises his team-mates too.
“United glance much more like scoring when Pogba is within the aspect, and I do not see Brighton preserving out.”
