The Case for Manchester United
In the red corner we have Manchester United.
Man United’s Home Record
Man United are playing at home in this game as they welcome Brighton to Old Trafford. The Theatre of Dreams has become a fortress since Erik ten Hag’s arrival with the club now unbeaten in their last 31 home games.
Notably, the last time they lost a home Premier League game was on the opening day of last season, against none other than Saturday’s opponents Brighton.
That 31-match unbeaten run includes 27 home victories.
Man United v Brighton Head-To-Head Record
Another factor that you might want to consider going into this game is the head-to-head record between these two teams.
Man United have had the better of these clashes historically having beaten Brighton 7 times from the 12 Premier League games between these two teams.
However, what about Brighton?
The Case for Brighton
In the blue corner we have Brighton and Hove Albion.
Brighton’s Lightning Fast League Start
Brighton made light work of Newcastle before the international break two weeks ago. Irish teenage sensation Evan Ferguson netted his first-ever Premier League hat-trick to put him joint-second top-scorer in the league, just two goals behind Erling Haaland.
After an injury scare which prevented Ferguson from playing during the international break with Ireland, he looks to be back to full fitness just in time to face his boyhood club Manchester United at Old Trafford. This is a game that he will certainly want to impress in.
Brighton Have The Better Of This Fixture Recently
Brighton have only beaten Manchester United five times in fifteen attempts. However, the Seagulls have been United’s bogey team in recent years as they have beaten Man United in three of their last five games (and narrowly losing one of the other two on penalties).
Leaky Man United Defence
Man United have been poor in defence to start this season. The Red Devils have already conceded 7 goals from their first four games. Brighton on the other hand have been the most prolific attack in the Premier League with 12 goals from their opening four games.
This Brighton squad also have a track record of scoring away from home having scored at least once in each of their last 15 away league matches.
