Marc Skinner sends warning to Man United players and gives team news ahead of Brighton WSL clash

The Reds are unbeaten in the league this season having swept aside Everton in a 5-0 rout last time out. Marc Skinner&aposs side secured a 2-1 win over Aston Villa on the opening day of the season before drawing with both Arsenal and Leicester. While the Seagulls opened the season with a 2-1 win over Everton, they have fallen short in all three WSL games since.

United have won six of their eight top-tier clashes with Brighton. Last term the Reds put eight goals past the struggling Seagulls, notching two 4-0 wins.

Despite Brighton&aposs underwhelming start to the season, United manager Marc Skinner has warned his side not to take Sunday&aposs opponents lightly. We don&apost look at any other team&aposs results,” he said. “If you only judge your confidence off results then, in my opinion, youre not doing something right because it&aposs about performances. In the game we lost in Europe, I felt we outperformed PSG, so I&aposm happy with our performances.

When I&aposm watching other teams performances it&aposs a lot closer this year and it&aposs not like youre going to smash and grab – no team smashes and grabs and then defends for 90 minutes, were all always creating chances. I think were going to see a lot of variance in scores but these are the types of games that we have to collect three points.

“But we don&apost believe we deserve to get anything unless we earn it. This is a game where you have to earn it.

Brighton are a very good team, we have to make sure we perform to the best to beat them. It&aposs going to be a tight pitch, late kick-off, all these factors, but weve got to hit the ground running. Try to dominate the ball and if there&aposs a weakness in Brightons team weve got to try and find it.
