Brighton vs Manchester United Betting Tips
Manchester United might have struggled to beat Norwich City in the FA Cup over the weekend, although it was hardly a surprise when you consider that many of the first-team players were left out of this encounter.
Players such as Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba should return to the Starting 11 for this clash at the AMEX Stadium, with the Red Devils in hot pursuit of a top four position in the Premier League and they’re looking in good shape as the business end of the season approaches.
United demolished Sheffield United at Old Trafford last week and should have run home more than the three goals, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team looking really lively and they have the outstanding Bruno Fernandes running the show.
While David de Gea has been error-prone this season, he has a steady central defensive pairing in front of him in the form of Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire, with Brighton likely to have problems fending off the visitors’ attack considering their home advantage at the AMEX Stadium has been eroded thanks to an empty stadium.
The Seagulls have collected four points from games against Arsenal and Leicester which has given them breathing space at the foot of the division, although the bottom line is that the Gunners were in control of the match at the AMEX when leading 1-0.
While Neal Maupay continues to have a brilliant season in his first season in the Premier League, Graham Potter’s side have been short of goals for the duration and it’s easy to see them being outscored by a team who seem to be in the groove.
The odds about an away win seem completely fair, with United now looking like the sort of team who could possibly challenge for the 2020/21 Premier League title.
