Manchester United vs Brighton Match Preview
Brighton rarely make life easy for any team and are unlikely to be blown away even by a bang-in-form Manchester United outfit loving life under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Six wins in a row for the Red Devils, including at Tottenham last weekend, have restored the feelgood factor to Old Trafford which had evaporated at the end of Jose Mourinho’s reign.
They will be expected to make it a magnificent seven since the popular Norwegian took charge when they host Brighton, but their opponents are not the type to roll over and have their tummy tickled.
The Seagulls have beaten United twice at the Amex Stadium since they were promoted and while they are not as strong on the road, they made the Red Devils pull out all the stops on their trips north in both the league and the FA Cup last season.
It’s rare that Chris Hughton’s side lose heavily and Everton are the only side to have put three goals past them this season.
Therefore, going low on goals looks the best way to bet here, purely backing the ‘unders’ at odds-against in case Brighton frustrate United and manage to end Solskjaer’s 100% start.
