Manchester Utd vs Brighton Prediction & Betting tips
The well performing Manchester United will receive Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend. Under Ole Gunnar Solskjær, Manchester United won all matches and Brighton & Hove Albion also has to be won at Old Trafford.
Should Ole Gunnar Solskjær be the manager of Manchester United next season? This question is frequently asked in the English media during the last few days. Understandably, because the Norwegian is doing fine with The Red Devils. He was six times on the bench at Manchester United and all six duels were won. Five of those games were won in the Premier League and with that, Solskjær equaled Matt Busby’s record. If the Norwegian manager wins Brighton this weekend then he only has the record and that should be possible. Especially since The Red Devils were already too strong for Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, that a few classes are better than Brighton.
At the Spurs was won with 0-1. At Wembley, Marcus Rashford was responsible for the only goal of the game. The British striker made his seventh league goal of the season and gave Man United three important points. In the two league matches before that, Rashford was also very good for The Red Devils and Rashford, together with Paul Pogba, has been fully trained since the arrival of Solskjær. That probably has not so much to do with the arrival of Solskjær, but rather with the departure of José Mourinho. The Portuguese can miss them as a toothache in Manchester.
Brighton & Hove Albion:
At Brighton & Hove Albion they know that they normally have little chance of winning Old Trafford. Brighton has a much smaller budget and much less material than Manchester United, but that does not always say everything. For example, on Boxing Day, Brighton managed to catch a run in its own home against Arsenal, which is above Manchester United in the Premier League. At Brighton, however, there is a big difference between home and away matches. For example, this season, Brighton won only twice in the Premier League outside of its own Amex Stadium, while in that stadium five wins were already won.
Last weekend, Brighton lost its home game in the Premier League for the third time this season. After defeats against Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea (both 1-2) Liverpool was too strong in the Amex Stadium: 0-1. Occasional goalkeeper David Button – Matthew Ryan is active with Australia at the Asian Cup – had to score the only goal of the match just after eleven meters. That the formation of Chris Hugton lost to The Reds was no wonder – the Irish manager lost seven of the seven matches in which he acted as manager against Liverpool.
