Brighton – Manchester Utd : Preview & Prediction
Brighton, 15th last year, wants to do better this season and, after losing on the first day against Chelsea (1-3), had a very big game to win at Newcastle (3-0). Brighton also spent the first two rounds of the League Cup (4-0 against Portsmouth and 0-2 at Preston North End).
Manchester United got off to a bad start last year, but had an exceptional second half of the season, notably thanks to the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in the winter transfer window. With a very good squad, the Mancuniens have the weapons to achieve a great season and play the leading roles in the Premier League. Manchester did not play the first day of the league (they played in the Europa League Final in August), and lost on the second day against Crystal Palace (1-3).
Brighton finished 17th (out of 20) in the Premier League at home last year with 5 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses.
Brighton has scored 20 goals and conceded 27 in 19 home league games last year. Which made it the 4th worst attack!
Manchester United finished 5th in the Premier League away from home last year with 8 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses.
Manchester United have scored 26 goals and conceded 19 in 19 away league games last year. Which made it the 6th best attack as well as the second best defense!
Manchester United were hugely disappointing in their game against Crystal Palace and cannot afford to offer such a performance again. Mancunians must win and not already fall too far behind their competitors. Manchester United victory!
