Manchester United

Brighton have won three of their last four official matches. Four of Brighton's five games this season have played a total over 2.5 bet. The same bet has won in all four of the last official Manchester United meetings. Manchester United have won four of their last five away League Cup matches. Manchester United have beaten Brighton in all four past head-to-head meetings. Last season the Red Devils defeated the Seagulls 3:0 and 3:1. In all five last head-to-head matches of these teams, the bet "total over 2.5" was played.


Brighton started the season well, giving the fans hope that the team is still developing and not marking time. In the championship, the Seagulls lost to Chelsea (1:3), but defeated Newcastle (3:0), whereas in the last match they lost to Manchester United in a dramatic meeting (2:3). Graham Potter's team held out to the last, but got their own penalty kick in the tenth added minute. By the way, the very defeat at Manchester United was for Brighton's players only the second in the last ten official matches.

Brighton played unsuccessfully in the League Cup. This is already the best performance of the club in this tournament since entering the Premier League. In the current draw Brighton confidently passed Portsmouth (4:0) and Preston (2:0) in the previous stages.

In the transfer market Brighton was humble. "Seagulls" sold more than they bought. Therefore, according to results of the transfer window, Brighton earned about 17 million euros. The gulls received most of this money for Anthony Knockert, who was bought by Fulham. Brighton itself bought Jean Paul van Hecke from Breda for 2 million euros and bought defender Joel Veltman from Ajax for 1 million. Although the main gain looks like the transition on the rights of free agent Adam Lallana from Liverpool.

Unavailable at Brighton for this match are Jose Izquierdo, Florin Andone, Christian Walton and Yves Bissuma.

Manchester United

What is considered a good start to the season for Brighton doesn't look very good for Manchester United. The Red Devils played three matches and won only one of them with confidence. Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer's team defeated Luton in the League Cup (3:0). In the first match in the Premier League Manchester United lost to Crystal Palace (1:3) and in the second match they just barely beat Brighton (3:2).

In the transfer market Manchester United were unusually quiet. Names of many football players were associated with the Mankunians, but most of them passed the club. Manchester United bought only Ajax center-back Donnie van de Beck, spending 39 million euros on him.

Manchester United won the League Cup in 2017. Last season, the Red Devils reached the semifinals of the tournament, in which they lost to Manchester City (1:3, 1:0). And in this League Cup Manchester United started with a major victory over Luton (3:0).

Not available to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for this match are Phil Jones, Sergio Romero, Marcus Rojo, Chris Smalling and Axel Tuanzebe.


In general, Brighton shows a nice game at the start of the season, so a sensation can happen in this match. What is also characteristic of the "seagulls", their meetings are effective. The same goes for Manchester United fights and personal duels between these clubs.

Our forecast is total over 2.5 goals for 1.88 in BC 1xBet
