Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks for a seventh consecutive victory as a Manchester United manager when his team takes on Brighton this weekend. The Red Devils have a 100% record under the Norwegian manager, who came in as the replacement for Jose Mourinho. Brighton have been steady and measured throughout the campaign, but the team finds itself in the bottom half of the table coming into the game. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Manchester United were able to claim a 1-0 win over Tottenham at the Wembley Stadium to significantly boost their chances of a top four finish. It was an incredible match in which David de Gea played a huge role in ensuring a fifth consecutive league victory for Solskjaer.
Brighton’s amazing home form came to an end with the team losing 1-0 against Liverpool at the AMEX Stadium. Brighton have only picked up two wins in the last five matches.
The reverse meeting between Brighton and Manchester United produced a shock 3-2 win for the former at AMEX Stadium. United had picked up a 2-0 victory in the last meeting with Brighton at Old Trafford. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Manchester United.

Brighton have been solid in a number of matches this season and they have certainly not been passed around by the top teams. However, the Seagulls are in a heavily disadvantageous position coming into this match with United showing a lot of positive elements over the last few weeks. Even though Brighton have been able to overcome United in the last two meetings, both these victories have been at AMEX Stadium. United have been functioning extremely well since Solskjaer came to the club and there is no reason to think otherwise, as per our preview.

Manchester United vs Brighton draw odds: 5.00
Brighton win odds: 11.00
Correct Score odds
Brighton have been a solid team when it comes to the 2019-18 Premier League season. It is not a surprise that the team has conceded fewer goals than United despite being several places behind the Red Devils in the league table. It is fair to expect a similar outcome even if United have been playing an open and attacking football that goes back to the days of Sir Alex Ferguson. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for United.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Apart from the reverse fixture back at the start of the season, all of the meetings between Brighton and Manchester United in recent games have been a low scoring affair. However, both teams have the potential to score in this match. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Marcus Rashford remains in form over the last few weeks. The 21-year-old came up with the only goal of the game against Spurs last weekend. This was his third goal in the last four matches. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Marcus Rashford.
