Man United were not in action in midweek as their game with Brentford was cancelled and they will be hungry to continue their recent good form here. They have played two league games under Ralf Rangnick and won both these by the same 1-0 scoreline. At home, the Red Devils have won the last two having failed to win any of the previous four.
Brighton were in action in midweek on Wednesday night when they suffered a 1-0 home loss to Wolves to continue their poor run of form. It is now 11 without a league victory and they have dropped 13th though they are still nine points above the bottom three. Away from home, the Seagulls are without a victory in the last six with five finishing all-square.
Man Utd vs Brighton: Predictions
The two league games under Ralf Rangnick have both ended 1-0 and this looks like it could be another low-scorer. Brighton have seen their last six all go under 2.5 goals and six of their last seven when looking just at away games.
United have been a playing a 4-2-2-2 of late with Marcus Rashford starting alongside Cristiano Ronaldo up top. The Englishman will be given plenty of opportunites behind a creative two of Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho and given he has four goals in his last six against Brighton looks value to net here.
