Tip Manchester United - Brighton

 by Daniel Ngulu |

Manchester United will be at home to take on Brighton in their opening game of the Premier League but a highlight of the home team will be the dysfunction it has come to be associated with lately. It hasn’t been a perfect period for United in preseason, with Cristiano Ronaldo stating his desire to leave and being termed a disruptive force despite being their most outstanding player last season. United didn’t have the strongest of finishes in preseason, failing to win in the final three matches and going without a clean sheet in five. Brighton had a strong finish to preseason, beating Espanyol 5-1. After playing five preseason matches, that was their third win, and they’ve only lost once. In the three wins they’ve scored two or more goals, while they have no clean sheet in their last five matches. Three of their last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals and both teams have scored in three of the five games. In the last meeting between these two, Brighton whitewashed United 4-0 in a dominant display at the AMEX Stadium.

Form Analysis

Manchester United haven’t won in their last three matches, and they haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last five matches. They do have defensive concerns going into this game, though they should do well in attack. Brighton have the same issues; they are delivering in attack but struggling in defence.

Squad analysis

New men Tyrell Malacia and Lisandro Martinez will be expected to offer defensive cover for United while another new signing, Christian Eriksen should provide the attacking punch. At the same time, the curious case of Cristiano Ronaldo’s future will play out. He hasn’t been involved a lot in preseason but he will be expected to start. Brighton are facing a battle to decide on Marc Cucurella’s future, with Chelsea reported to have reached their valuation of the player. He had a good season last term and if he plays this, it could be his farewell game for Brighton, who have already seen midfielder Yves Bissouma leave.

Our prediction

Brighton have had a fairly strong preseason run and will want to cash in on Manchester United’s off-field disruptions. United have gone winless in the last three matches and have no clean sheet in the last five matches. Both sides scoring has been the norm in these two sides’ matches, and their games have also been high scoring. In light of their performances ahead of this game, we will go for over 2.5 goals in this.
