After a summer of uncertainty, Man United fans will hope to see their new manager start with a win. Question marks over signings and Cristiano Ronaldo’s situation puts Man United in a fix. Brighton have defeated the Red Devils last time but the home team may just about manage to cross the line. I am backing this match to be an entertaining encounter.

  • There have been over 2.5 goals in 8 of the last 9 matches between Man United and Brighton (Premier League)
  • Man United have won 10 of their last 13 season openers (Premier League)
  • Bruno Fernandes has scored 4 goals and assisted 2 in 5 matches against Brighton (Premier League)
  • Brighton have lost their last 5 away matches against Manchester United (Premier League)

Head to Head

Man United and Brighton have faced each other in 28 matches in all competitions with the Red Devils winning 19, losing four and drawing five.

Last season, the sides shared the results with Man United winning 2-0 at home and Brighton winning 4-0 at the AMEX Stadium.

Man United Form

Man United finished 6th during last league campaign and recruited Erik Ten Hag in the off-season to oversee the club’s revival. There were confident displays in the pre-season but the hosts still look a side that isn’t up to scratch.

New signings Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia haven’t really had enough time to bed in, although the first two may start.

The Red Devils ended last season with four losses in six Premier League matches including two straight losses. Thankfully, they have started well winning 10 of their last 13 Premier League season openers.

Man United Team News

Cristiano Ronaldo’s participation remains a question form after playing just 45 minutes in the entire pre-season. Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial missed their last practice match with knocks but Sancho could be set for a match.

Brighton Form

Brighton had a reasonably confident pre-season winning three, drawing one and losing one of their five matches. Graham Potter’s men were one of the surprise teams last season finishing 9th with 51 points.

The Seagulls will be without ace defender Marc Cucurella who left the club to join Chelsea in the summer. New Signings Deniz Undav and Julio Enciso may not be involved as yet.

The visitors ended last season on a high winning five and losing just one of their last nine league games. This will be their best chance to erase an unwanted record at Old Trafford having never won her against Man United in any competition.

Brighton Team News

Jakub Moder is a long-term absentee for Brighton with an anterior cruciate ligament tear while midfielder Alexis Mac Allister picked up a groin injury during the pre-season.

Man United are embarking on a major overhaul as they look to recover lost glory. While they keep stuttering along, Brighton have a great chance to add a historical win.

I am backing this match to be entertaining with over 2.5 goals being my prime pick. With Ronaldo not guaranteed a start, it could be Bruno Fernandes taking the burden of scoring goals for United against his favourite opponent.
