Will Ansu Fati make his Brighton debut this weekend? On-loan Barcelona star set for Premier League bow… – talkSPORT

Ansu Fati is set to make his first appearance in a Brighton shirt this weekend as the Seagulls travel to face Manchester United. 
The 20-year-old joined the Premier League side on loan on deadline day in what was deemed one of the signings of the summer in the top flight. 
Barcelona star Fati has left the Spanish champions to spend a campaign in England playing first-team football after being a regular substitute in La Liga. 
And the highly-rated youngster, who inherited Lionel Messi’s iconic No.10 at Barca, could make his Brighton bow at Old Trafford. 
Fati is expected to make his Brighton debut on Saturday. 
The Spaniard will likely play a part in the Seagulls' game against United at Old Trafford which is exclusively live on talkSPORT 2
Manager Roberto De Zerbi admitted that Fati would not feature in their game against Newcastle before the international break due to not yet training with the team. 
It was the same for fellow deadline day signing Carlos Baleba but the boss also said that they will be a part of the squad for this weekend’s game. 
“About the transfer market we are happy to close it in a good way,” De Zerbi said.
“We closed on two very important players in the last days and we are happy. 
“[For Newcastle] it was not the best solution [for Fati and Baleba to play]. They have not yet started working with us. 
“We have to give them the right time to be inside, to come inside to work. Then we will be there, next game.”
Both players will have been getting used to their surroundings over the international break and are set to play their first game for Brighton. 
Fati’s stunning arrival on the South Coast has fans incredibly excited to see him get started in England. 
And there is no better place to kick off your Premier League career than at Old Trafford against Man United
