class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The hosts have picked up some form after defeat in their first game of the season and we are backing them to score at the Amex Stadium this weekend
Manchester United will be aiming to bounce back from the disappointment of defeat in their opening Premier League game of the season when they visit Brighton on Saturday afternoon.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were comfortably beaten 3-1 by Crystal Palace at Old Trafford last weekend and while they did manage a 3-0 midweek win over Luton Town in the Carabao Cup, the Reds will be desperate to avoid another poor league performance.
Brighton, for their part, enjoyed a 3-0 success at Newcastle last Sunday, a result which equalled their biggest ever away win in the Premier League.
Brighton vs Manchester United Latest Odds
These two sides met at the Amex Stadium at the end of June with the visitors running out 3-0 winners and another away win is priced at 3/4 (1.75) with bet365.
The Seagulls have won only one of their last 10 home league games and are offered at 15/4 (4.75) with the draw at 13/5 (3.60) .
Brighton vs Manchester United Team News
Graham Potter is unable to call upon the services of midfielder Yves Bissouma after his red card last weekend, while Florin Andone and Jose Izquierdo continue their long respective spells on the sidelines.
The visitors have a relatively clean bill of health with only long-term injury absentees Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones missing.
Brighton vs Manchester United Preview
There is an urgent need for United to improve upon their meek showing last weekend, not least because another defeat could leave them nine points behind the leaders already.
The 3-0 scoreline in midweek was somewhat flattering for Solskjaer’s side with two goals in the last two minutes avoiding what could have been another difficult evening.
Brighton, meanwhile, have won their last three games (two in the Carabao Cup and one in the league) scoring nine goals in the process without conceding, and with United giving up clear goalscoring chances in their two matches this term, there could be some value in backing the hosts to find the back of the net.
The side from the south coast have scored in four of their last five matches against United and given their current strong form in the final third, they will be confident of doing so once more.
Brighton vs Manchester United Tips And Predictions
The hosts are offered at 1/2 (1.50) to score and at 5/2 (3.50) to score over 1.5 goals.
Perhaps the most appealing option though is backing Brighton to score in the second half at 6/5 (2.20) , which has paid out in all four of their competitive games this season.
