Man Utd vs Brighton TV channel, live stream & how to watch

BT Sport was originally due to show Manchester United vs Brighton in the United Kingdom (UK) on December 18, but the fixture had to be rearranged due to a Covid-19 related postponement.

BT Sport will be busy screening Champions League games on February 15, meaning supporters will be unable to view the Old Trafford contest in the UK.

The game will, however, be available for United States (US) viewers, with Peacock TV providing coverage on television and via an online stream.

Brighton are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League matches, with two 1-1 draws against Chelsea included in that period.

Potter's team have not suffered defeat on the road since November 20 and will fancy their chances of an upset against an inconsistent Red Devils outfit.

United have won just two of their last six games in the top flight, but were fortunate that their top-four rivals also slipped up at the weekend.

Ralf Rangnick's side can move back into the final Champions League spot with a win over Brighton before their focus switches to a Pennines derby clash with Leeds on February 20.
