Manchester United vs Brighton in the Premier League on Feb 15. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Manchester United vs Brighton in the Premier League on Feb 15. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

After slipping out of the F.A. Cup to Championship outfit Middlesbrough and then subsequently being held to back-to-back league draws with Burnley and Southampton, it has been a fortnight to forget for the Red Devils.

However, even within the context of relative failure, their hopes of a top-four finish have not been extinguished just yet and now interim manager Ralf Rangnick must find a winning formula against Brighton on Tuesday.

Both Teams To Score

Although Manchester United will be favourites to come out on top on Tuesday night, they have also been favourites during their last two Premier League matches and on both occasions, they have failed to win.

Which means backing United in the 1x2 market, will come with an element of caution and with that mind, I will need to take a much deeper dive across some of the biggest betting sites.

While with United’s propensity to concede goals as of late, backing both teams to find the net may make the most sense and if like me, you think that will be the case, you can back this outcome at odds of 19/20 with LeoVegas

Manchester United Form, squad news, opinion

Although Manchester United are unbeaten in their last five league outings, draws have largely been the order of the day and because of their propensity to drop points, they currently find themselves outside the Champions League paying positions.

Something that could be rectified by the end of Tuesday evening and if United can get the better of Brighton when using their game in hand over West Ham, they will then find themselves stealing fourth place in the Premier League.

However, a win for United is by no means a given and failure to win any of their last three outings in both league and cup, has meant that all is not currently well within the red half of Manchester.

While the story across those three encounters is one that has been largely the same and with the attackers creating plenty of chances but not being ruthless enough, this is also coupled with generosity in defence.

While with perceived failures at both ends of the pitch, it has seen United lose some of their usual swagger and failure to win a first Premier League encounter in three attempts, will only make the mood gloomier at Old Trafford.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Brighton, the list of absentees is seemingly getting longer by the week and with Ralf Rangnick now also having to deal with additional knocks to both Nemanja Matic and Edinson Cavani, they look likely to join Eric Bailly and Fred on the Old Trafford treatment table.

Brighton Form, squad news, opinion

During Graham Potter’s reign at Brighton manager, there has often been a single criticism and one that suggests that although the Seagulls create plenty of chances, they are often guilty of not converting them.

However, that criticism is one that now looks rather unfounded and with the South Coast outfit now unbeaten in their last seven Premier League outings, a trip to Europe next season is not necessarily out of the question.

Admittedly there is still a gap to breach between themselves and Wolves who currently lie in 7th, but there is no doubt that the Seagulls are flying with momentum right now and they are finally getting the results their efforts deserve.

With 12 draws to their name this season, there is no doubt that Brighton are an incredibly tough nut to crack, and this is backed up by the fact that they have only lost on four occasions - the fourth lowest tally in the division.

While with United stuttering over the past week or so, Brighton will make the trip to Old Trafford in full confidence and if they can extend their unbeaten league run to eight on Tuesday, then it will only indicate further progress for the Seagulls.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Manchester United, Brighton boss Graham Potter has no new injury concerns, and this means Enoch Mwepu and Tudor Baluta will once again miss out for the Seagulls.

History

When it comes to the history of these two sides, their most famous pair of meetings was during the 1983 F.A. Cup Final. Their first clash ended in an entertaining 2-2 draw, and this meant a replay was required to decide the winner.

A fixture that United would win with relative ease, as Brighton’s hopes of winning a first ever F.A. Cup was dashed after suffering a 4-0 defeat.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Manchester United have won on 18 occasions, Brighton 3 and there have been 5 draws

About the Venue

Although the Theatre of Dreams has created more in the way of nightmares in the past fortnight, Old Trafford is still known as a cathedral of football and with the biggest club capacity in English football, this stadium is a rather impressive structure.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

For Manchester United to be fifth in the Premier League at the time of writing, arguably says more about the teams around them and with nobody managing to nail down fourth spot as yet, there is still plenty to play for.

A scenario which has seen United drop four points in the last week alone and although interim manager Ralf Rangnick suggested that his players are getting better, some would also argue that they are getting worse.

While when it comes to the Premier League top-four odds, it is the Red Devils who are currently favourites to scoop fourth place from the London trio of West Ham, Arsenal and Tottenham and Tuesday will give a true indication as to whether this will be the case or not.
