Brighton vs Manchester United is Tuesday night’s (June 30) only Premier League action. Brighton need five points from their last seven games of the season to hit the well-prophesized total of 38 points that is normally enough to avoid relegation.
But the bookies make Man United odds-on to win the match, despite Brighton having won their two previous games at the Amex Stadium against them. However, those wins came in 2017 and 2018, and Man United have won both the matches at Old Trafford since. That’s why we’re concentrating on current form for our Brighton vs Manchester United tip, which is for there to be under 2.5 goals.
Brighton were noticeably playing better in defence in their final four games before the Covid-19 break, a run of results in which they drew 0-0 with Wolves, 1-1 with both Sheffield United and Watford, and lost 1-0 to Crystal Palace. They also held Leicester to a 0-0 draw on Tuesday. That means that five of their last six matches have produced less than 2.5 goals. The only one that didn’t was there 2-1 win over Arsenal, but Manchester United’s defence is likely to prove harder to breach.
You get the feeling that United may steamroller someone soon, as the Red Devils are growing in confidence with Bruno Fernandes now pulling the strings in midfield. But that steamrollering may come at Old Trafford, as Manchester United’s last seven away games in the Premier League have all produced less than 2.5 goals: Wolves 2-0, Burnley 0-2, Liverpool 2-0, Manchester City 0-1, Chelsea 0-2, Everton 1-1, and Tottenham 1-1.
That makes slight odds-on for there to be less than 2.5 goals in the Brighton vs Manchester match look a value bet.
