Brighton & HoveBrighton & Hove Team News, Updates and Facts

Brighton Team News

Youngsters Alexis Mac Allister and Tariq Lamptey both started for the first time as Graham Potter rotated his squad last time out. The Seagulls’ more senior player could return this time after a week off. Adam Webster was taken off as a precaution against Leicester and Shane Duffy may start ahead of him.

Brighton Key Players

  • Neal Maupay – Scored his ninth goal of the season with the late winner at home to Arsenal in the Seagulls’ first game back.
  • Lewis Dunk – An equaliser in the first game back and a clean sheet in the second marks a successful return to action for the big centre-back.
  • Pascal Gross – Has a good record in this fixture and will be desperate to get back into the starting XI for this one.

Brighton Team Form

Brighton have drawn five of their last seven matches in all competitions and have taken four points from their two games back, against Arsenal and Leicester. Lewis Dunk and Neil Maupay scored as they came from behind to beat Arsenal before a goalless draw at Leicester.

Brighton Predicted Starting Line-up

Expected Line up: 4-3-3

Brighton & Hove likely XI

  • Goalkeeper:Mathew Ryan

  • Defenders:Martin Montoya, Shane Duffy, Lewis Dunk, Dan Burn

Man United Team News

Manchester United have profited from the break to get back to full strength, but they may be forced into some changes this time after a gruelling two hours against Norwich. David de Gea, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba could all start.

Man United Key Players

  • Marcus Rashford – After returning to fitness he will be keen to get back in the goals – he has 14 in 24 league games so far this season.
  • Bruno Fernandes – While he has scored most of his goals from set plays, his impact on United’s upturn in form should not be understated.
  • Anthony Martial – Hit a hat-trick in United’s last league game as they beat Sheffield United at Old Trafford.

Man United Team Form

A draw with Spurs thanks to Bruno Fernandes’ late penalty, a 3-0 win at home to Sheffield United courtesy of Anthony Martial’s hat-trick and a 2-1 win after extra time in the FA Cup at Norwich – Odion Ighalo giving them the lead and Harry Maguire converting the late winner – mean United are now unbeaten in 14 matches in all competitions.

Man United Predicted Starting Line-up

Expected Line up: 3-4-3

Manchester United likely XI

  • Goalkeeper:David de Gea

  • Defenders:Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw

  • Midfielders:Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Fred, Paul Pogba, Brandon Williams

  • Forwards:Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial

Brighton vs Man United Betting Tips

Four points against Arsenal and Leicester mark a successful return to action for Brighton, but the fixtures get no easier.

They may have beaten Manchester United in both of their last two matches at the Amex – their only Premier League meetings – but the hosts are outsiders for this one.

United are unbeaten in their last 14 matches in all competitions and Anthony Martial’s hat-trick earned them a 3-0 win at home to Sheffield United last time out in the league.

A taxing extra-time win against Norwich in the FA Cup kept up their momentum and their regular starters will all be back for this game too.

Brighton may have some momentum of their own – and they have only lost one in seven, drawing five of those – but United have the attacking quality to make a difference.

Hone advantage has been less stark behind closed doors, so Brighton’s two previous home wins in this fixture count for little in the form book either.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are favourites for this one and with the likes of Martial, Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes all firing they can win again.

Brighton vs Man United Recommended bets with odds

Manchester United are odds-on favourites to beat Brighton, and can be backed at a best price of 3/4 with Bet365 and Betway to win.

Brighton have kept things tight at the back on their return but they do not score many either. Under 2.5 goals will return 4/5 with Bet365.

You can also bet against both teams to score at 5/6 with Betway.

Anthony Martial scored three in the last league game and he is 7/5 with Ladbrokes to score at any time again. Marcus Rashford is 3/2 with Ladbrokes.

Brighton vs Man United Prediction

Brighton have impressed on their return to action but they come up against a Manchester United side who have carried their momentum on after the break.

Correct score prediction: Brighton  0-2 Man United
