Man United vs Brighton Tips

The international break couldn't have come at a worse time for Brighton, who had hit their best form when recording back-to-back wins.

The Seagulls have a poor record against Manchester United, who had been on a good run of form prior to losing in the FA Cup to Leicester last time. The Red Devils are tipped to win with Bruno Fernandes scoring.

  • Man United have won 3 of their last 4 home matches (Premier League). 
  • Man United have kept a clean sheet in their last 4 matches (Premier League).
  • Man United's Bruno Fernandes has scored 3 goals in his last 2 matches (Premier League).
  • Man United have won their last 5 matches against Brighton (all competitions).
  • Brighton have lost 2 of their last 3 away matches (all competitions).

Head to Head

Man United have dominated Brighton in recent times, winning the last five meetings including twice already this season at the Amex Stadium.

United won an action-packed Premier League game 3-2 in September. Solly March thought his 95th equaliser had earned a point for Brighton, only for Bruno Fernandes to score a 100th minute winner from the penalty.

Four days later, there was far less drama as United won 3-0 in the Carabao Cup. 

Man United Form

Manchester United were eliminated from the FA Cup when last in action as they lost a quarter-final 3-1 at Leicester.

Mason Greenwood cancelled out Kelechi Iheanacho's opener. But second-half goals from Youri Tielemans and Iheanacho sent the Foxes through.

The defeat brought an end to a 14-game unbeaten run in all competitions, and ended a 13-game run without a loss away from home.

United qualified for the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League with a 1-0 win at AC Milan, who they also drew 1-1 with at home.

When last in action in the Premier League, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's side won the Manchester derby 2-0 against rivals City and beat West Ham 1-0.

Man United Team News

Juan Mata and Phil Jones are out, while Man United have doubts over a number of players.

Victor Lindelof is doubtful due to a back injury, and forwards Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood all have question marks hanging over them.

Of the quartet, Rashford and Greenwood are most likely to be passed fit.

Brighton Form

Back-to-back wins have moved Brighton six points clear of the Premier League relegation zone.

Graham Potter's side ended a six-game winless run and a three match losing stretch with a 2-1 victory over Southampton in the south coast derby.

They then followed that up with a just a second home win of the season when defeating relegation rivals Newcastle 3-0.

Leandro Trossard, Danny Welbeck and Neal Maupay got the goals in the relegation six-pointer.

Brighton Team News

Defenders Solly March, Adam Webster and Tariq Lamptey remain on the sidelines, as does striker Florin Andone.

Forward Aaron Connolly is on the road to a comeback but is unlikely to be risked.

Man United had been solid defensively before conceding three in the FA Cup last time. Expect United to return to winning ways and Bruno Fernandes should be backed in the goalscorer markets.
