Manchester United are struggling to keep up with their rivals Man City in the fight for the Premier League title with Pep Guardiola’s men looking effectively unstoppable with an eight point lead at the top of the table. Nevertheless the Red Devils have also been impressive this season and while they stumbled in last night’s Champions League match, they are still effectively in the last sixteen of the competition.

The Red Devils lost 1-0 to Chelsea early this month but they have nevertheless won for of their last six games and the goals are certainly flowing in with confidence at a high despite their recent slip-ups. They enjoyed an emphatic win over Newcastle United in their last top-flight outing and they are expected to collect another three points when they welcome the Seagulls to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, the bookmakers going 1/5 on a home win.

Brighton are enjoying their first ever Premier League campaign and far from the expected battle against relegation, Chris Hughton’s men are currently residing in the top-half of the table. They made a slow start to life in the Premier League but they appear to have found their stride and following a run of five games unbeaten, we expect them to give a decent enough account of themselves this weekend. Nevertheless avoiding defeat is one thing but actually leaving Old Trafford with the three points in the bag would be another. Will they do it? We don’t believe so.

On paper there is a real gulf in quality between these two sides and understandably most pundits – including ourselves – believe that the Red Devils will win in comfortable fashion. The hosts have banged in four goals against seven opponents so far this term and while the visitors have been pretty impressive at times, they have been showing signs of fragility in defence and with this ing mind, we’ll be going for a Manchester United win with a two-goal handicap at odds of 9/5 with Betfair Free bets
