The Brighton vs. Manchester United match will be played on Friday, May 4, at the American Express Community stadium, Brighton. Brighton is currently 14th on the table with 37 points, while Manchester United is 2nd with 77 points at the moment.


  • Brighton failed to win in seven games in a row. In their last two league matches they recorded a draw. In six out of those seven games we saw under 2.5 goals.
  • Manchester United won six out of their last seven matches in all competitions. Interestingly, they lost only against last-placed WBA at Old Trafford during that period.


These teams played two games against each other this season. Manchester United celebrated a 1:0 victory in the league, while in the Cup, Jose Mourinho's team recorded a 2:0 victory.


Brighton is in a crisis, which put them into the danger zone. With three games to go, they are five points ahead of Southampton. However, apart from the match against Manchester United, they will face Manchester City and Liverpool, so it won't be strange if they fail to win a single point until the end of the season. This is their last home match, so Brighton will probably have to attack Manchester United and try to win the game.

Manchester United needs only one victory from their next three games to secure the second place on the table. After Brighton, they will play an away match against West Ham and host Watford in the last round. However, they are already focused on the match they will play against Chelsea in the FA Cup final in two weeks. It will be the only chance to save the season for both managers.

We expect an interesting encounter. Brighton desperately needs a victory, while Mourinho will probably send several players who had less playing time during the season on the field.
