Brighton vs Manchester Utd Prediction & Betting tips
The third round of the Premier League starts on Saturday afternoon with a game in South East England: Brighton & Hove Albion will then be visited by Manchester United in their own American Express Community Stadium. An away win is obvious, but the resort club is in good shape and will not just accept defeat.
Brighton & Hove Albion:
For Brighton, the match with Manchester United will be the third league game of the season. The Graham Potter team started the Premier League just under two weeks ago with an unjustified 1-3 defeat against Chelsea. Last weekend, however, Brighton recovered by booking a handsome 0-3 victory over Newcastle United. In between these two league games, The Seagulls also won 4-0 against Portsmouth in the Carabao Cup. On Wednesday evening, a heavily modified Brighton achieved another success in the Carabao Cup by beating Preston North End 0-2.
On a visit to Preston North End, former Eredivisie players Joel Veltman, Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Davy Pröpper could count on a base place at Brighton. Jahanbakhsh even scored the opening goal on Deepdale, but will sit on the bench against Manchester United with Veltman and Pröpper. Against Manchester United, Potter seems to be sticking to the side that gave him a 0-3 win at Newcastle United, with suspended Yves Bissouma replaced by Adam Lallana. In its current form, Brighton is still not a favorite for the duel with Manchester United, but a big defeat is also not expected.
Manchester United started the competition last weekend with a downer. At Old Trafford, the team of Ole Gunnar Solskjær lost 1-3 against Crystal Palace. It was only the first league game for Manchester United this season, but at home a club like Manchester United must take three points against Crystal Palace. That defeat may show that Manchester United are not ready to really compete for the title at the moment.
In the Carabao Cup, the team did record a victory earlier this week. Luton Town was beaten 0-3 by Manchester United on Tuesday-evening, which only scored the last two goals in the absolute final phase. The first goal was scored just before half-time by a utilized penalty kick from Juan Mata, so it was not at all with The Red Devils. It should be noted that Solskjær did not start with his strongest team on Kenilworth Road. The Norwegian manager will of course do that against Brighton and that means that Donny van de Beek cannot count on a basic place. Solskjær seems to largely keep faith in last season’s Manchester United midfield and former Ajax player Van de Beek seems to have to settle for raidings for the time being.
