Man Utd vs Brighton odds

Man Utd

*Odds correct as of 10:10 on September 14

Man Utd haven’t started their Premier League season as they would have liked. Erik ten Hag’s men lost both of their away games (3-1 and 2-0 at Arsenal and Tottenham, respectively) while boasting a perfect record at home.

As for Brighton, their only blemish was a shock loss against West Ham at home, with that setback coming after registering a pair of 4-1 wins over newcomers Luton Town and Wolves. Roberto De Zerbi’s side returned to successful ways in style with a thumping 3-1 win over Newcastle United last time out.

The Seagulls were the last away side to pick up all three points at Old Trafford in the Premier League, winning 2-1 on the opening day of last season, with Manchester United going on a 21-game-unbeaten run at home since then, winning each of the last eight. The Red Devils have not won nine Premier League home games in a row since March 2013 under Sir Alex Ferguson and will be hoping to revenge for the last three league matches between the sides, with Brighton coming out on top in all three.

In fact, a win here would see Roberto De Zerbi’s side become just the third side in Premier League history to record four consecutive wins over the Red Devils after rivals Manchester City and Liverpool.

Man Utd team news

In  Out Doubtful
Sergio Reguilon Raphael Varane, Tom Heaton, Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia, Kobbie Mainoo, Mason Mount, Amad Diallo Lisandro Martinez, Sofyan Amrabat

A number of players are still missing for Man Utd including Raphael Varane, first-choice left-back Luke Shaw and his England international teammate Mason Mount. Lisandro Martinez and loan signing Sofyan Amrabat are both doubts for this weekend, with latter still recovering from a back problem, but summer signing Rasmus Hojlund may be given his first start after impressing against Arsenal as a late sub.

Brighton team news

In  Out Doubtful
Ansu Fati Jakub Moder, Julio Enciso Evan Ferguson, Danny Welbeck

The Seagulls seek a second consecutive win at Old Trafford over Man Utd without the services of Jakub Moder and Julio Enciso. Evan Ferguson, who became one of just four 18-year-olds to score a Premier League hat-trick before the international break, is a doubt alongside former Manchester United man Danny Welbeck.

Ansu Fati is raring to get his loan move to Brighton started and what better place to do it than at Old Trafford.
