Manchester United vs Brighton Prediction & Match Preview



Manchester United vs Brighton Prediction & Match Preview

Manchester United will be aiming to make amends for the FA Cup defeat to Leicester City when they take on Brighton at Old Trafford on Matchday 30. 

The Red Devils aim to keep their Premier League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Seagulls. 

Marcus Rashford, who missed the World Cup qualifiers through injury, should recover in time to face Brighton, as well as Mason Greenwood.

Brighton, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Southampton and Newcastle in the previous two league fixtures. 

However, the Seagulls will have a much bigger fish to fry against Manchester United. 

The Red Devils do not suit the Seagulls, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops winning each of the previous five meetings between the two teams in all competitions.

Team News:

The biggest selection call for Solskjaer to make this weekend is in goal, where David de Gea is back in contention following the recent birth of his child.

Dean Henderson has filled in for United's last six games, but the England international may well have to make way here.

Anthony Martial suffered an injury on international duty, but knocks sustained by Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood do not appear to be serious enough to keep them out.

Defender Victor Lindelof is United's other fitness concern, so Eric Bailly could partner Harry Maguire in the heart of defence.

Former Man United forward Danny Welbeck has scored and assisted in his last two outings and is expected to partner Neal Maupay in attack.

Florin Andone, Solly March, Adam Webster and Tariq Lamptey are all definitely out.
