Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised the depth of his squad as he prepares to pick a team to face Albion.

But he is confident even those who played 120 minutes at Norwich last night will be fit and fresh for Tuesday’s game at the Amex.

The Manchester United manager made eight changes to his starting line-up for their FA Cup quarter-final at Carrow Road.

United were taken to extra-time before winning 2-1 and Solskjaer became the first manager to ever make six substitutions in a competitive English fixture.

He said: "We did make many changes but we still think that the players who play 120 minutes are fit enough for Brighton on Tuesday.

“It did not make it easy for the players. We had two days to prepare for this game but the rhythm and tempo was not there but we are happy to be through.

“It is great to have the option to rotate. Anthony Martial came on and did brilliant but Odion Ighalo gives me a chance to rotate and he is a proven goalscorer and played his part in both goals.

“He is a great person to have around the dressing room too.”

Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Bruno Fernandes were the only three players from the 3-0 midweek win against Sheffield United to retain their places – and all ended up playing the full 120 minutes.

Jesse Lingard and Igahlo were among those brought into the XI.

Ighalo also played the full two hours and maintained his record of netting in every United start by opening the scoring.

Maguire hooked in the late winner, just as former Albion goalkeeper Tim Krul was eyeing a matchwinning role in a penalty shootout.

Martial, Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Marcus Rashford were among the stars United had to send on as subs to win them the tie.

Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bissaka did not feature in the 20 at Norwich.
