Reason for Manchester United vs Brighton Predictions
Far, far away from the title battle, Manchester United couldn’t even fight their way to the Big 4 last year. Far too inconstant, the Red Devils have broken their teeth far too often against teams within their reach to the point of taking only a fairly unremarkable 6th place, a ranking unworthy of the status of this club which will be deprived of the Champions League and who will therefore have to settle for the Europa League. On the other hand, Eric Ten Hag’s men wanted to turn the page this summer and returned to the field with great seriousness during the first friendly matches. In the friendly, they showed they cared by beating Liverpool 4-0, Melbourne Victory 1-4, and Crystal Palace 3-1. Marcus Rashford is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Scott McTominay found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
Brighton, for its part, negotiated the previous exercise rather well. Often used to taking place in the second half of the table, the Seagulls this time were able to enter the top 10 and end the season in a correct 9th place, far from the battle for maintenance. Neal Maupay’s teammates have also made a fairly convincing preparation with a draw conceded against Union Saint-Gilloise 0-0 and successes against Estoril 1-4 and Reading 1-2. On the other hand, they were stopped by Brentford 1-2. Brighton lost his hub this summer, midfielder Bissouma who signed up for Tottenham, while defender Ostigard joined Napoli. Conversely, the Seagulls have attracted promising Paraguayan striker Julio Enciso (Libertad) and Ivorian winger Adingra (Nordsjaelland). Tariq Lamptey is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Long-term injured midfielder Moder will be out until February and will therefore not be able to play this game.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Brighton is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Manchester United should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
