Manchester United hosts Brighton & Hove Albion at the Old Trafford
In a serious need of points right now, Manchester United hosts Brighton & Hove Albion at the Old Trafford on Sunday. It’s a good moment to take a look at this fixture in our English Premier League predictions.
Being one of England’s most successful clubs, Manchester United can’t be happy with being 10th in the Premier League standings. But this is the sad reality for the Red Devils right now. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team is having a record of 13 points won so far, which makes them trail on 10 points behind the Top 4. Things are not good, that’s for sure.
In the previous round Manchester United suffered their fourth defeat for the season. The team visited AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Road, conceding a 0-1 loss. The statistics for Manchester United are certainly not good as they have won just one of their last five matches in the league.
During the week Manchester United qualified for the Europa League knockout phase, beating Partizan with 3-0 at the Old Trafford. Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford scored for the hosts.
Against Brighton & Hove Manchester United will be without the services of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Diogo Dalot and Timothy Fosu-Mensah, who are injured.
Brighton & Hove Albion are ahead of Man United in the Premier League standings right now, being 8th in the table with 15 points won. Right now they are in a good shape, winning three of their last four matches in the league. In their last match Graham Potter’s boys hosted Norwich City and celebrated a 2-0 win, thanks to goals from Leandro Trossard and Shane Duffy.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the game between Manchester United and Brighton & Hove Albion at the Old Trafford on Sunday. Can the Red Devils bounce back after their loss against Bournemouth last week? They have to.
