Manchester United v Brighton & Hove Albion: head-to-head
Brighton & Hove Albion completed a league double over Manchester United last season and have in fact, won the last three Premier League meetings between the sides.
A Pascal Gross double saw Brighton win 2-1 in the corresponding fixture last season whilst the most recent meeting between the sides finished 1-0 to Brighton at the Amex thanks to a dramatic 99th minute penalty from Alexis MacAllister.
Free-scoring Brighton are the highest-scoring team after four matches in the Premier League this season. The Seagulls have averaged three goals per game with Evan Ferguson (4 goals) and Solly March (3 goals) both amongst the division's highest scorers. Against a Manchester United side decimated by defensive injuries, the Seagulls could have a field day at Old Trafford on Saturday. Brighton & Hove Albion are Evens to score over 1.5 team goals against Manchester United.
Solly March will prove popular in the any time scorer market but given Manchester United's problems in central defence, we're opting for Brighton's in-form centre forward, Evan Ferguson to net again on Saturday. The 18-year-old is 17/10 to score at any time at Old Trafford. Alternatively, you can back the Republic of Ireland international to score first at 6/1 or two or more at 9/1.
Bruno Fernandes enjoyed a successful international break for Portugal and the 12/5 on offer for him to score at any time looks incredibly generous.
- Manchester United: 11/10
- Draw: 2/1
- Brighton & Hove Albion: 17/10
