Tip Manchester United - Brighton
Manchester United will play host to Brighton & Hove Albion in Round 12 of the Premier League on Sunday. The two sides go to the game with Brighton in eighth place with 15 points while United are 10th with 13 points. Manchester United have picked well lately, though they suffered a setback in their last Premier League match, against Bournemouth. They are on four wins in their last five matches and these happen to be the only wins they have managed in the last 11 matches. Three of United’s last five matches have yielded over 2.5 goals and they have scored two or more goals in three of their last five. They have only two clean sheets in their last seven matches while they have managed one win in six matches. At home though, Manchester United are unbeaten in the last three, winning one and drawing one. Manchester United have not scored more than one goal in four home matches in the league.
Brighton on the other hand, have three wins and two losses in their last five matches. They have scored two goals or more in three of their last four matches but they have been weak in defence. They have kept just four clean sheets in the last 13 matches but they failed to score in just two of their last 10 matches. They are winless in their last four away matches, losing three and drawing one. In three of their last four away matches, Brighton have not managed to score. However, they have two wins over Manchester United in the last three meetings. None of these wins have come at Old Trafford though.

Conclusion Manchester United - Brighton
Manchester United have recovered well in the past few matches and they will be hoping to continue in the same way here, also taking advantage of playing at home. While Brighton have two wins in three meetings with Manchester United, they haven’t done so at Old Trafford. This will be a big test for them as they have also been on the rise. However, a run of four winless away matches will not inspire a lot of confidence going to Old Trafford. While it has been shaky for United, we still feel they will win here.
