Rasmus Hojlund starts for Manchester United today against Brighton.
Lisandro Martinez also returns to the starting lineup.
The Argentina defender did not play despite travelling to South America for his country’s World Cup qualifiers, but will likely partner Victor Lindelof in defence after he was also declared fit.
Mason Mount will continue to miss out but, along with Raphael Varane, Ten Hag described him as “in a good place” ahead of a return to action soon. Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia remain absent.
The much-publicised absence of Antony opens up a big question on the right wing, with natural replacement Jadon Sancho being officially exiled ahead of the game after his public falling out with Ten Hag.
