Brighton is hosting Manchester United at American Express Community Stadium in round 36 of the English Premier League. Brighton has been doing well lately, and they have beaten Wolverhampton in their last game. United is now undefeated in their last 2 games, while they have won their last game against Brentford, and it was a good one.
If Brighton was playing this well for most of the season, they would have been on the Europa League spot right now, but at the moment, they are in 9th place, and they will probably stay there. In the attacking end, Brighton is not doing much, they have scored only 34 goals so far, but their defense has been pretty decent with 42 conceded goals. Maupay has been great for Brighton with 8 scored goals so far this season, while Trossard has added 7 goals. There are still a few injuries in Brighton. Overall, I think this was a good season for Brighton, and even though they are beating themselves up for not doing better, I think they are quite happy with it as well.
United has only 2 games left to play this season, and even though they are 5 points away from the Champions League spot, I don’t think they will get there. United is now in 6th place with 58 points, and they will be playing in the Europa League next season. United has been far from convincing on either end this season, and even though 57 scored goals are not bad, it’s simply not enough for United to be more competitive, and of course, their defense didn’t help. United has been sloppy, slow, inconsistent, and overall, just a terrible team on the defensive end, and they have conceded 52 goals. The injury list is now pretty long for United, but it doesn’t really matter. Ronaldo is the leading goalscorer for United with 18 scored goals. The last two games don’t mean much to United, but I’m sure they would love to end their season on a positive note, but both of those games are on the road. United is already making moves for the next season, and I think they will be a lot better than.
Brighton hasn’t won any of their last 7 games against United, but they are in good form now and they might do something here. United is better offensively, but Brighton is more solid on the defensive end. I see both teams scoring here, and with that, I think the over will hit as well.
