Marcus Rashford to score anytime against Brighton in Saturday’s Premier League matchup

Competition: Premier League

Market: Marcus Rashford to score anytime

Odds: 7/5 @ Bet 365

With the chance to carry on what is becoming an outstanding resurge, Manchester United will welcome Brighton to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, tieing Sir Matt Busby’s record and winning his opening five Premier League matches in charge, few at Old Trafford would have expected Manchester United’s turnaround under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Picking up a very impressive 1-0 win over Tottenham last weekend, the Reds now sit level on points with Arsenal and their top-four dreams could be alive and well. One man who is relishing Solskjaer’s arrival is England international Marcus Rashford. Scoring the winner at Wembley on Sunday, the 21-year-old now has three league goals in as many appearances.

As for the visitors, while Brighton might have put in a respectable showing in their 1-0 loss to Liverpool last weekend, Chris Hughton will be concerned by his sides woeful record away from the South Coast. Now failing to win any of their last three Premier League away days, including back to back defeats against Burnley and Bournemouth, the Seagulls have remarkably won just two of their last 24 matches on the road, a run that stems back to November 2017. Given Brighton’s very public struggles away from the Amex, we’re backing Rashford to enjoy a successful afternoon in front of goal.
