Steven Gerrard names two Man United stars who have the 'X-factor'

All will be revealed when United host Brighton in their 3pm kick-off on Saturday, as they aim to chase down rivals City at the top of the league.

Manchester United's only home defeat against a team in their debut Premier League season came in 1996/97, losing 2-3 against Derby County.

Jose Mourinho's United has been unbeaten since, while Hughton hopes his team will continue their unbeaten run in the last five league games. "At Old Trafford, we can't give anything away".

With this in mind, Brighton travel to Old Trafford to face a Manchester United side that have been in inconsistent form of late.

"At home, we have to win", Herrera told Soccer Saturday. "We started a bit slowly against Huddersfield, they got a goal and then another one".

"I'd sign up now to win every game 1-0 at home".

Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be set for a return to the starting 11 for Manchester United this weekend - and the striker looks very pleased at the prospect.

Vijay, Pujara put India in dominant position
India were without the services of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami, both of who had caused much damage in the first Test. The overs in the legs showed when Lakmal went for 21 in four overs in his mid-afternoon spell despite reverse swing on offer.

North Korean boat that brought eight fishermen to Akita vanishes
Police said the vessel may have sunk at the port or drifted beyond the breakwater and into the Sea of Japan. Japanese media reported that the men were apparently fishing for squid.

Sisi calls emergency meeting after more than 80 killed at Sinai mosque
On the Jordanian royal family's official Twitter account, King Abdullah II condemned what he called a "heinous terrorist attack". Hundreds of Sufi Muslims were slaughtered during Friday prayers in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula by suspected Islamic militants.

Mourinho has confirmed that the Frenchman will provide the much-needed firepower again today, but he will not be able to play more than 70 minutes.

And by taking a philosophy of one game at a time, City can still be caught due to the unpredictable nature of the Premier League, says Herrera.

'I think they're the best team up until now at this stage of the season.

"We have to think, 'we are Man Utd and we have to fight for every title.' We are in a good position in the league, we are chasing the top of the table".

"We are in the League Cup quarter-finals, we have done well so far and in the Champions League, we have 12 points in five games, which is good".

"I'm happy here. The club is massive, the support we have is massive".

Brighton will bring a five-game unbeaten run to Old Trafford, but the Seagulls have already lost against City and Arsenal this season, and will find it extremely hard to pick up a positive result from Old Trafford.
