Brighton vs Manchester United Head-to-head
Brighton and Man Utd locked horns 16 times total so far and as expected, stats are going in favour of the Red Devils who won 11 games. Seagulls and their fans celebrated only three victories so far.
It’s quite interesting to mention that the last five h2h’s ended with three goals or more. Are we about to see another thriller duel?
Brighton defeated Manchester United at this stadium both times in 2018 in Premier League matches.
Brighton vs Manchester United Prediction
Despite the abovementioned loss, it would be fair to say that Graham Potter’s team is playing some good football lately. Brighton had three consecutive victories against Portsmouth 4-0, Newcastle United 3-0 and Preston 2-0 until the last weekend.
They did some good work during the pre-season, and we expect them to be in upper part of Premier League table this season. Players will surely seek some revenge for the recent loss to Red Devils, especially after Bruno Fernandes’ post-game statement.
Manchester United’s fans are a bit furious at club owners, demanding some fresh blood, especially in the back. The team started new season with a shocking 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace at home, while three points against Brighton were everything but not deserved.
This should be an open match with a lot of opportunities on both sides. Over 2.5 FT is the safest betting approach in our opinion at 1.80, while Brighton to qualify at 2.62 smells like value.
