Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester United betting tips: Premier League preview, predictions and odds

Since losing back-to-back visits to the Amex in 2018, Manchester United have won seven consecutive meetings with Brighton. This is their longest ongoing winning sequence against any-other Premier League club.  

Both teams to score is 7/10.

Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is 11/10.

Cristiano Ronaldo has faced 34 different opponents in the Premier League, scoring against 29 of them. Having ticked Brighton off the list in February, he's 15/4 to break the deadlock and 11/10 to score anytime. 

Match preview

Will Manchester United end a generally very underwhelming season with a bit of a flourish?

On Monday night, the Red Devils swatted someone aside for the first time in 2022, easily beating Brentford 3-0 at Old Trafford.

Bruno Fernandes, set up by Anthony Elanga, broke the deadlock after just nine minutes on a rainy night in the north-west.

But, this would not prove to be pathetic fallacy with Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty and a Raphaël Varane volley, his first goal for the club, sealing a very easy win.

This though is just Man United's third win in ten, with Ronaldo having scored nine of their last 12 goals.

Even if Ralf Rangnick's side win their last two, they visit Crystal Palace on the final day, it'll only match the club's lowest-ever Premier League points tally.

This was set by David Moyes' team in 2013/14.

Also, having been dumped out of cups by West Ham and Middlesbrough, they've now gone five years without a trophy for the first time since 1974.

When Erik ten Hag does arrive in a few weeks time, he'll be taking over a Europa League club and one that needs major surgery, not a minor operation.

One of the symptoms of Man United's mediocrity is that Brighton & Hove Albion are just three places below them.

Conversely, this is more a reflection of how well Graham Potter's side are doing, well on course for the club's highest-ever top-flight finish.

Last weekend, the Seagulls enjoyed their most emphatic away league win since September 2020, easily beating Wolves 3-0 at Molineux.

It didn't start well with Alexis Mac Allister hitting the post from the spot, before taking the exact same penalty mere minutes later, only this time it nestled in the corner.

After that, Leandro Trossard, who's now scored in three consecutive away appearance, and Yves Bissouma both scored lovely goals to seal the win.

Potter's team have now taken 11 points from the last 18 available, beating Arsenal and Tottenham in this time, only losing to Manchester City.

Will it be a famous night at the Amex?

Brighton & Hove Albion team news

The general consensus about Brighton is that they need a reliable goalscorer.

They may not have that, but they do have a man in form, that being Leandro Trossard.

Having scored three in his last four, the Belgian has taken his tally to seven for the season, his most productive campaign since joining the club.

Danny Welbeck meanwhile has scored four times when facing Manchester United.

This makes the highest-scoring player against Man United in Premier League history, of those who'd previously played for the club.

Tariq Lamptey came off the bench at Molineux, after missed the Southampton game injured, so could be fit to start here.

Moisés Caicedo only made his Premier League debut against Arsenal last month but has shone, starting every match subsequently.

The Ecuadorian, Yves Bissouma and Enock Mwepu will continue to form an impressive midfield tiro.

Manchester United team news

Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 18 Premier League goals this season, alongside the six he bagged during the Champions League group stages.

The last player to score that many in a campaign for the club is Robin van Persie, netting 30 in 2012/13 as they won the title.

Elsewhere, Harry Magure, Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba are all out injured, while Jadon Sancho has tonsillitis.

Fred is fit again however, so he could partner Scott McTominay in midfield, displacing Nemanja Matić.

Jesse Lingard didn't even get off the bench on Monday, so may well have played his last game for the club he joined as a seven years old in 2000.

Juan Mata started for the first time since the final day of last season against Brentford, but Marcus Rashford could return for this one.

Bruno Fernandes, who scored a 100th minute penalty after the final whistle at Brighton last season, has scored four in four against the Seagulls.
