The match is over.
Times continue to be tough in the red half of Manchester and a Seagulls side who continue to go under the radar and impress look set to take advantage of a vulnerable side and make it a lucrative trip up North.
Goals look like they will be short supply in this clash. Brighton have only scored four goals on the road this season, only Watford, Norwich, and Everton have scored fewer on the road. That takes care of Brighton’s half of this bet so on to United. The Red Devils have an incredible record of only having score more than one goal at home in a game once this season in the Premier League which is why we are not expecting much of a goal fest with under 2.5 goals a great way to score value with online betting sites in the goals market.
UNDER 2.5 GOALS IN THE GAME
Neither side may score much home and away respectively, but they do at least score the odd one. In fact, United have scored exactly one goal in their last four home Premier League games. The Seagulls managed to net in their last outing against Aston Villa but have not been shy in front of goal boasting a total of 14 goals this season in the league which is one more than United. The correct score of 1-1 looks a likely outcome and offers great value in the betting markets.
1-1 CORRECT SCORE
Manchester United to win the match are a little too short for our liking. They are also very shaky and perhaps worth avoiding having lonely won three of their eleven Premier League games this season. The value lies with the Seagulls and backing the draw as the double chance offers a way of doing that still at a better price than backing United by themselves. Brighton have been ripping up trees of late and have won three of their last four league games meaning they may spying an opportunity of grabbing their first ever three points at Old Trafford – if not, the draw at least.
DRAW/BRIGHTON DOUBLE CHANCE
Head to Head
Manchester United claimed a 2-1 win when the pair met at Old Trafford in January in the Premier League last season. However, that was the first win the Red Devils had claimed over the Seagulls since the 17th March 2018. Brighton have won the last two meetings in a row at the AMEX 1-0 and 3-2 respectively to give them confidence heading to Manchester. Overall, Manchester United have won 13 times against Brighton whilst the Seagulls have claimed three victories and a total of five draws.
Match to finish a draw
It is not often that Brighton come into a game against Manchester United boasting the stronger Premier League table position but that is exactly where we find ourselves. The Seagulls appear to have kicked on a gear under Graham Potter and boast a record of three wins in their last four outings. That has helped produce value with popular sportsbooks for this game and although the win may be a bit beyond Brighton, they have proven more than once this season they have what it takes to grab a point and heap more pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
