Manchester United v Brighton Betting Tips – Premier League 25th November 3.00pm

The odds appear to be heavily stacked against Brighton in this one then as they make the long trip up north to Old Trafford. However, the Seagulls are carrying great form and are now five unbeaten in the top flight. Can they pull off a huge shock in this one? Manchester United will be feeling more positive after a comfortable home win over Newcastle and having gotten back the services of Paul Pogba. They are heavy odds on favourites to collect the win in this one and to extend their already strong home form in the top flight this term.

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United recorded a comfortable 4-1 win over Newcastle at home on the weekend. With Paul Pogba back from injury they looked a totally different side because he makes such a positive difference in the middle of the park for them. Without him, they really went into their shell recently. But they extended their winning form at home to six from six this season in the league but they did concede their first home goal of the season as Newcastle had struck first in the game. Still Manchester United to win to nil at Betfair is a great option at 4/7. It’s not likely that Brighton are going to see enough of the ball to create themselves too many chances against the United back line. United have scored 19 goals and have conceded only the one then this season on home soil in an impressive record. 67% of their games at home in the league have gone over 2.5 goals this season and 67% of their goals at Old Trafford have come in the second half of matches as well. Romelu Lukaku netted against Newcastle to take his tally to eight goals league goals this term and he is at 10/11 in the anytime goalscorer market.

Brighton News and Form

Brighton deserves a lot of credit for the season that they have put together in the top flight in this season. They are undefeated in five now with a W2 D3 record having been posted and collected a 2-2 home draw with Stoke on the weekend to keep their unbeaten streak intact. They have suffered just the one loss in their last seven games but that loss was at Arsenal, which could be telling for how this one may go. They have lost their two games against top six sides this season (Man City and Arsenal) by a 2-0 scoreline but they have handled themselves against sides from the bottom half of the table. They are actually on a two match winning streak away from home having taken clean sheet victories over West Ham and Swansea. A Manchester United 2-0 correct score at Betfair looks appealing at a price of 9/2 though. The Seagulls have posted a W2 D1 L3 record overall on the road this season. Brighton have netted just the five goals on the road this season and three of them came at West Ham. The Seagulls have failed to net in three of their six away games. Glenn Murray is the top scorer for them with the four goals and they have only been behind at half time in just one of their last five away games so a half time draw may be worth considering or a Draw/Man Utd half time/full time wager.

Manchester United v Brighton Predictions

Manchester United to win: The Red Devils are a short piece for a reason in this one. They are worth backing to win to nil for the fixture because they should get enough of the ball to keep the Seagulls at arm’s length. The visitors are going to try and play for a point more likely than not, but United’s patience and quality and pay off.
