Manchester United will be hoping for a better result following a 0-2 Premier League loss in their previous game against Brighton & Hove Albion.

In that game, Manchester United managed 64% possession and 5 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Brighton & Hove Albion got 13 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Pascal Groß (30', 39') scored for Brighton & Hove Albion.

It’s not been often in recent times where Manchester United have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Manchester United have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 13 goals in the process.

In a total of 5 of the previous 6 games involving Brighton & Hove Albion, at least three goals have been hit. The average goals scored per match in that time is 3.33, with the average number of goals for Brighton & Hove Albion standing at 2.17. It will be interesting to find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained here.

👥 Head to head

Inspecting their most recent head-to-head clashes dating back to 30/06/2020 shows that Manchester United have won 5 of these and Brighton 1, with the number of drawn matches standing at 0.

20 goals were produced between them throughout the course of those matches, with 13 of them from The Red Devils and 7 coming from The Seagulls. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.33.

ℹ️ Team News: Manchester United

Regarding absentees, there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength group. Anthony Martial (Hamstring Injury) will miss out.

We are thinking that The Red Devils will possibly use the 4-2-3-1 system for this game and select David De Gea, Diogo Dalot, Harry Maguire, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay, Fred, Jadon Sancho, Christian Eriksen, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford.

📋 Team News: Brighton

In an otherwise healthy group of players, there’s only the sole fitness issue for the Brighton boss Graham Potter to be concerned with. Jakub Moder (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.

From our viewpoint, The Seagulls might utilise a 3-2-2-2-1 system, settling for Robert Sanchez, Joel Veltman, Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster, Solly March, Leandro Trossard, Adam Lallana, Moises Caicedo, Pascal Gross, Alexis Mac Allister and Danny Welbeck.

🧠 Prediction

Our assessment is that Manchester United should create the chances to score more than once when they line up against Brighton & Hove Albion, who may well struggle to find the back of the net.

We can therefore see a 2-0 winning margin for Manchester United when all’s said and done.
