Manchester United vs Brighton - Match Preview & Prediction

Manchester United vs Brighton - Match Preview & Prediction

A game at home to a team like Brighton would've been viewed as a guaranteed win for Manchester United back in the day, but it no longer seems as if that's the case.

The list of Manchester United's absentees shouldn't change much from the squad that featured Thursday against Partizan.

Luke Shaw, Phil Jones, and Axel Tuanzebe are unlikely to be available for selection, with Paul Pogba, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, and Eric Bailly also out for the long-term.

The contest was put to bed shortly after the halftime break, as Ashley Young picked out Rashford in the penalty area for an easy tap in. With that in mind, expect Solskjaer to include several youngsters into the matchday squad once again.

Brighton look set to be without Adam Webster, Jose Izquierdo and Bernardo ahead of this game.

Solskjaer would be hoping that his team can bounce back from the 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth in the last league game.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Manchester United fans saw the "template" for how he wants his team to play against Partizan Belgrade.

The Red Devils hadn't started as electric as past games, with Brighton doing well to frustrate them early on. Surprisingly, they are just five points above the relegation zone.

The Red Devils are now 14th in the Premier League table, just five points clear of the drop zone and a whopping 11 points behind fourth-place Leicester after 11 fixtures.

Meanwhile, Brighton are in eighth place with 15 points thanks to a W4, D3, L4 record.

Brighton will be glad to see the back of Aston Villa for a few months, though, after they lost games to the Midlands side in the Carabao Cup and the Premier League. Their most recent Premier League match ended with a solid 2-0 home win over Norwich City.

What is our previous all-time record against Partizan?

Brighton would park the bus as soon as the match kicked off, giving United the ball and looking to hit on the counter. The Red Devils would dominate possession, and the onus would be on them to create and score. Plus, The Seagulls have never won in 11 previous trips to Old Trafford in all competitions.
