Brighton vs Manchester United
English Premier League
Date: Friday, 4th May 2018
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium (Brighton).
Manchester United can confirm the second spot in Premier League with a win against Brighton on Friday evening. The United’s playing their 36th game of the campaign are 5 points clear off Liverpool at third, who already played their 36th game on the weekend.
The Red Devils were troubled by a fringe Arsenal side last weekend, but fortune favors the brave and they ended up winning 2-1. Mourinho’s men have now picked up 7 wins from their last 8 games despite their performances were hot and cold.
Brighton on the other hand are also desperate to put some points on the board as they still need 2 points to avoid the relegation. The Seagulls drew Burnley last weekend and haven’t won in any of their last 6 games.
This may not change on Friday, but a point against a team like United will do well to their confidence. Waiting of Brighton in the coming weeks is Manchester City and Liverpool. Therefore, they cannot let the guards down or else Championship is waiting for them.
Brighton vs Manchester United: Head-to-head
United won 1-0 when the teams met at the Old Trafford in the Premier League earlier this season.
They were also drawn against each other in the FA Cup, the Red Devils once again bagged a comfortable 2-0 win at their own turf.
Brighton vs Manchester United: Prediction
Brighton have a massive task at hand and they are in need of points. So, expect them to go all out against the elite guests.
Therefore, invest in goal markets for this Premier League fixture and both teams to score will be my primary option.
Now, the ultimate question is can Brighton bag a surprise win against Manchester United. I would say, do not keep your hopes high, Mourinho’s men are exceptionally good at counter attacking and they know Brighton have to take the attacking initiative at some point.
