Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Buoyed by a 3-0 win over Brentford, Manchester United will look to keep their Champions League hopes alive when they take on Brighton at Amex Stadium. The Red Devils finally gave fans something to cheer about on Monday, but they face yet another must-win situation against the Seagulls. A man to watch in the away team will be Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored his 18th goal of the season against the Bees, while all Pogba, Sancho, and Shaw remain in the recovery room.
Fit-again centre-back Harry Maguire is pushing for a start. Brighton, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-0 win over Wolverhampton. The hosts are eyeing a top-ten finish, but seeing that Man Utd want this win more than Brighton, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting side. Both Moder and Sarmiento are injured for the home side.

Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
