BRIGHTON V MANCHESTER UNITED
8.15pm This is a cracking fixture to enjoy on a Tuesday night. United have returned from lockdown in good form, and although Norwich took them to extra time in the FA Cup at the weekend, Ole made quite a few changes so it shouldn’t impact on this fixture. Every fixture is important at this stage of the season when you’re in Brighton’s position in the table and they need to stay focused because they are just about out of the danger zone.
Brighton were unlucky again not to beat Leicester on this day last week. They won on xG 1.21 to 0.67 and that more or less reflects their season. The xG table puts them into 11th but they’ve had to fight to stay up all season. As I said, they are just about in the clear but their overall process has been good and despite their finishing position I wouldn’t be worried about them going down next season.
United have only scored 16 times in 15 away games on paper this season, but their xG puts them at 23. That’s still not impressive for a club as big as United, and they will need to improve that to make a challenge make season at a top four finish. All the additions Ole has made have been good, and their numbers reflect that. They were on top against Spurs and battered Sheffield United.
Brighton were able to beat Arsenal here in their first fixture since lockdown and although I fancy United to get the win, I’m surprised to see Both Teams To Score at odds against. Both sides have an xG of very close to 1.5 – Brighton home games and United away games. And Untied have been creating some very good chances lately. An early goal can really open up this game to be an excellent entertaining game but nonetheless I can see an open game with plenty of chances. BTTS should be odds on in my opinion.
