Recent Form

Both sides are yet to taste defeat following the Premier League's restart, with Brighton snatching a win against Arsenal and holding Leicester to a stalemate. United bagged victories against Sheffield United and Norwich in the Premier League and FA Cup respectively, and split the points with Tottenham in a 1-1 draw.

The recent form has seen Brighton all but secure their Premier League safety, while the Red Devils continue to close the distance between themselves and a Champions League spot. They currently occupy fifth spot, which might be good enough for Europe's elite club competition if Manchester City's ban is upheld.

Here's how both sides have fared over their last five games.


Leicester 0-0 Brighton (23/6)
Brighton 2-1 Arsenal (20/6)
Wolves 0-0 Brighton (7/3)

Manchester United 2-0 Manchester City (8/3)

United left it late to beat Norwich in extra time in the FA Cup


Although Brighton have been difficult to beat of late, United should have too much here. Solskjaer has finally found a winning formula and the club have started to show positive signs for the future.

It'll be another chance for United fans to observe the Pogba-Fernandes partnership and the Red Devils will edge even closer to a Champions League spot with victory on the south coast.

Prediction: Brighton 0-2 Manchester United
