Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Manchester United?
Manchester United has been going all in during their matches, trying to win or die trying, which has them sitting at 2 victories and 2 losses so far in their season, but also has them placed at the 11th spot.
While Man United’s form on the pitch has left a little to be desired, off-field issues involving Antony, Jadon Sancho, and the club’s drawn-out ownership saga have since followed during the international break, not helping Erik ten Hag’s cause, and the Red Devils’ supporters are merely craving a day without drama at Old Trafford.
Two home wins and two away defeats have been posted from their opening four Premier League games this term. Their latest setback suffered at the hands of rivals Arsenal, who put United to sleep 3-1 in dramatic circumstances two weeks ago.
Why Bet on Brighton?
Brighton & Hove Albion are in the current 6th spot on the scoreboard, with 9 points taken from 3 victories and a single loss in their current run.
The Seagulls continue to go from strength to strength and have made a positive start to the new season, winning three of their opening four Premier League matches and scoring 12 goals in the process – more than any other top-flight team to date.
Bouncing back from a brief wobble against West Ham United, Brighton soared to a statement 3-1 victory at home against Newcastle United before the international break, with teenage sensation Evan Ferguson netting his first Premier League hat-trick.
Final Betting Analysis: Manchester United vs. Brighton
While Brighton fans are sure to have one eye on their first-ever Europa League match against AEK Athens next Thursday, Roberto De Zerbi and co will have full focus on their upcoming clash with Man United, as they endeavor to win their fourth successive league game against the Red Devils.
A closely-fought contest between an under-pressure Man United side and a buoyant Brighton outfit is set to take place this weekend, and it is difficult to predict a favorite for this match-up.
Brighton have scored in each of their last 15 Premier League away games and will be confident of breaching Man United’s backline, but we believe that the hosts will find a way to claim a share of the spoils in a close-fought draw.
