Brighton vs Manchester United

Brighton fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Chelsea in midweek, making it just one league win in nine for the Seagulls.

This poor run squashed any hope of a European return last month but Brighton do go into the final day knowing they can earn a top-10 finish. They are currently 10th in the table but have to beat United to ensure they remain there.

Brighton to finish in Top Half

As for Manchester United, they brought a poor run of form to an end on Wednesday with a 3-2 win over fellow Europe chasers, Newcastle United. However, it proved to be all for nothing as Chelsea beat Brighton on the same day, meaning United can no longer finish in the top seven this term, even if they win on Sunday.


Brighton vs Manchester United betting stats

Here are some key Brighton and Manchester United stats to keep in mind as you prepare to make your selections ahead of the game:

  • Only the Premier League’s bottom four sides – Sheffield United (seven), Luton (11), Nottingham Forest (13) and Burnley (13) – have collected fewer points in 2024 than Brighton (18), with the Seagulls winning just one of their past nine games in the competition (D3 L5).
  • Danny Welbeck is just the eighth different player in the competition to score at least 15 goals as a substitute.
  • Brighton have failed to score more than once in each of their past 12 Premier League games, last having a longer such run in a single season in 2004/05 (a run of 15 between September and December 2004).
  • Brighton have won 16 of their 33 Premier League home games under Roberto de Zerbi (D9 L8). A win over Manchester United will mean the Italian has won more matches with the Seagulls at Amex Stadium in the competition than any other manager, overtaking Graham Potter’s 16 wins in 60 such games (Chris Hughton won 13 of 38).
  • Manchester United have conceded 58 Premier League goals this season, their most across a single campaign in the competition. The Red Devils last shipped more in a season in 1978-79 (63).
  • At 21 years and 309 days, Amad Diallo is the youngest African player to both score and assist a goal in a Premier League match since Kelechi Iheanacho for Leicester against West Brom in March 2018 (21y 158d).

Brighton vs Manchester United Top Tip

  • Kobbie Mainoo’s goal in midweek was the 10th strike to have been scored by a teenager for Manchester United in the Premier League this season (Alejandro Garnacho seven, Mainoo three), making this just the third campaign that this has occurred for the Red Devils in the competition, along with 2004/05 (15) and 2019/20 (11).
