Brighton vs Manchester United Predictions

Manchester United have a game in hand over Wolves after winning their FA Cup Quarter Final.

The Seagulls have a bit of breathing space from relegation after a win and a draw so far.

Brighton are 15th, having established a six-point cushion on 18th at the time of writing. Manchester United have dropped to sixth but can retake fifth with a win here.

Both sides have hit form at the right time for respective seasons. Brighton aren’t quite out of the woods yet and will be desperate to avoid defeat. Norwich took to Manchester United to extra time just three days ago, perhaps allowing fatigue to play a significant role in this one with the likes of Bruno Fernandes looking very tired in extra-time. My correct score prediction for this match is a 1-0 Manchester United win but under 2.5 goals looks like the bet of the day for this one.


Brighton vs Manchester United Odds

  • Brighton are priced at 15/4
  • A draw is priced at 5/2
  • Manchester United are 3/4 to win



Brighton Form

Brighton have continued their decent form after the restart with four points from two games. They are yet to lose since the Premier League restarted, despite playing the likes of Arsenal and Leicester.

They have lost just one game from their previous seven in the league. Those games have established a pattern of few goals – only two of the last seven have featured over 2.5 goals.

Brighton’s record against top-six sides is solid but unspectacular. The Seagulls have picked up four draws from eight games, losing the other four.

Centre back Adam Webster is a doubt for Brighton after being forced off against Leicester.


Manchester United Form

Manchester United are unbeaten in seven with five clean sheets in that period. Impressively, Solskjaer’s side have played five of the top seven in those run of games. This is United’s longest unbeaten run of the league season.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have each scored 14 league goals this season, despite missing several games between them. A hat-trick for Martial in his last league fixture will have boosted the Frenchman’s confidence.

The Red Devils’ record against the bottom six sides is rather mixed. They have won four, drawn one and lost three of their previous meetings this season.

Manchester United’s first team squad in without any major injuries with only bit-part players set to miss out.
