Prediction: Manchester United to win 3-0

Best Odds: 10/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

Manchester United and Brighton and Hove Albion will face each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The game at Old Trafford is slated to kick off at 7:30pm on Sunday and promises to be an exciting game of football.

Manchester United

It now looks very unlikely that Manchester United will catch city rivals and current leaders Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, but the Red Devils should still be pleased with how the season is turning out for them. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have progressed to the quarter-finals of the Europa League and are second in the league table with 57 points from 29 matches, 14 points behind leaders City, who have played 30 games.

United will head into the match at Old Trafford on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Leicester City in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. It followed a 1-0 win against AC Milan in Italy which saw them booked their place in the last-eight of the Europa League. The Red Devils’ last Premier League game ended in a 1-0 win against West United at Old Trafford.

Team News:

Marcus Rashford was sent back to United from the England camp due to a foot injury and is a doubt for the game against Brighton.

Brighton and Hove Albion

Brighton and Hove Albion are not having the best of seasons and are in real danger of going down to the Championship at the end of the season. Graham Potter’s side are 16th in the Premier League table at the moment with 32 points from 29 matches, six points above third-from-bottom Fulham, who have played 30 games.

The Seagulls will head into the match against United on the back of a 3-0 win against fellow relegation candidates Newcastle United at home. It followed a 2-1 victory over Southampton away from home at St. Mary’s Stadium in the league. The last two results have enhanced Brighton’s chances of escaping the dreaded drop to the Championship at the end of the season.

Team News:

Neal Maupay will start for Brighton, and so will Lewis Dunk and Yves Bissouma.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Man United have scored 56 goals and conceded 32 goals in the Premier League.
  • Brighton have scored 32 goals and conceded 36 goals in the Premier League.
  • Manchester United have lost just four Premier League games all season.
  • Brighton have won only seven Premier League games all season.
  • Man United beat Brighton 3-2 away from home in September.

Conclusion

Brighton will be high on confidence following their last two results and will know that the game against United is a free hit. However, the Red Devils have the better team, and it is hard to see them slip up. A convincing win for United is the most likely outcome in this game.
