Bookmaker: Zetbet

Brighton and Hove Albion and Manchester United will lock horns with each other at the American Express Stadium in the Premier League next weekend. The match between Roberto De Zerbi’s side and Erik ten Hag’s team is scheduled to kick off at 4 pm UK time next Sunday.

Brighton and Hove Albion

Brighton and Hove Albion did extremely well last season and finished as high as sixth in the Premier League table. At one point, the Seagulls were even competing for the title. However, Roberto De Zerbi’s side have not been particularly great this campaign, especially in recent months, and are now unlikely to even end up in the top half of the standings.

The Seagulls are as low as 10th in the Premier League table with 48 points from 36 matches. Brighton are level on points with Bournemouth, who are 11th, and are four points behind West Ham United, who are ninth and have played 37 games.

Brighton will head into the Premier League game against Chelsea this weekend on the back of a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United away from home at St. James’ Park in the league. It came after a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa at home in the Premier League which followed a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth on the road in the league.

Team News:

Brighton and Hove Albion are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Manchester United. Bart Verbruggen will be in goal for the Seagulls and will have Joel Veltman, Adam Webster, Lewis Dunk and Igor Julio in front of him in defence. Pascal Gross and Billy Gilmour will be the two holding midfielders, Facundo Buonanotte, Julio Enciso and Simon Adingra will be in attacking midfield. Danny Welbeck will lead the line for Roberto De Zerbi’s team.

Manchester United

Manchester United are arguably the biggest club in England and have huge expectations. However, just like in previous seasons, they have fallen away short of where their fans expect them to be. Matters on the pitch have been disappointing and inconsistent, and there is nothing much to play for between now and the end of the season in the league.

United, though, have progressed to the final of the FA Cup where they will take on city rivals Manchester City. It was not easy, though for the Red Devils. They were 3-0 up against Coventry City in the semi-finals this past weekend before letting their opponents make it 3-3. The former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners had to win the tie on penalties.

Erik ten Hag’s side are eighth in the Premier League table at the moment with 54 points from 36 matches. United are three points behind Newcastle United and Chelsea, who are sixth and seventh respectively in the standings. Interestingly, Manchester United will face Newcastle at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

Team News:

Manchester United are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Brighton and Hove Albion. Andre Onana will be in goal for the Red Devils and will have Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Jonny Evans and Diogo Dalot in front of him in defence. Kobbie Mainoo and Sofyan Amrabat will be the two holding midfielders. Amad Diallo, Scott McTominay and Alejandro Garnacho will be the three attacking midfielders. Rasmus Hojlund will lead the line for the Red Devils.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Brighton and Hove Albion have lost 3 of their last 6 Premier League matches.
  • Brighton and Hove Albion have won 12, drawn 12 and lost 12 of their 36 Premier League games this season.
  • Joao Pedro has scored 20 goals and given 2 assists in 38 matches in all competitions for Brighton and Hove Albion this season.
  • Bruno Fernandes has scored 15 goals and provided 11 assists in 45 matches in all competitions for Manchester United this campaign.
  • Manchester United have won 1 of their last 6 Premier League games.

Conclusion

Neither Brighton and Hove Albion nor Manchester United have been particularly impressive this season, and it is hard to see much exciting happen in the game between the two sides of the season. While both sets of players will try their best, it is likely that this particular Premier League game will end in a draw.
