England Premier League
Sunday 4th April 2021
Kick off at 7:30pm BST
Venue: Old Trafford
Manchester United may still have hopes of winning the Premier League even though they are currently 14 points behind Manchester City. Still United have a game in hand and all it takes is a few slip ups. In reality though United will just want to have a strong finish to the season and finish 2nd.
Leicester are putting the Red Devils under pressure for 2nd and then there is th emergence of Chelsea who have played wonderful football. United have been drawing too many games lately, though they have won their last two games with their last match being a 1-0 win over West Ham.
United have the rare distinction of having a better away record than at home but are also unbeaten in their last 4 home games and have the 5th best home record in the league.
Brighton have pushed themselves into 16th place as they try to avoid relegation and have won their last 2 games, which is simply huge at this point of the season as they leave Newcastle and Fulham to scrap it out for survival, though of course Graham Potter’s side are not out of the woods yet.
Brighton have beaten Newcastle and Southampton recently to receive that boost and they could move into 14th place if results go for them at the weekend.
Away form home isn’t a disaster for the club where they have won 5 and lost 5 and would be 12th in the league based on away form only. They have also lost just once in their last 5 outings which is a decent return for a club considered to be struggling this season.
Manchester United: Anthony Martial and Phil Jones are both out with knee injuries. Victor Lindelof, Mason Greenwood, and Marcus Rashford are all doubtful.
Brighton: Aaron Connolly is doubtful with a calf injury. Adam Webster is close to returning from his ankle injury.

The last time the two teams met here Manchester United won 3-1.
Manchester United have won the last 5 meetings in a row.
Earlier this season in the reverse fixture Manchester United beat Brighton 3-2.
Man Utd vs Brighton Prediction:
Manchester United have blown hot and cold at home but they have a good record in recent weeks and we would have to go back 5 games to their last defeat. They look more comfortable at home now.
United are in good spirits too and should have a good run in until the end of the season. They are more than capable of winning this game but we also think this is a match where we could see a few goals and that should be the main market to back on. United like playing Brighton and have a good pattern of scoring at least 3 against them.
We don’t see any other result than the home one but for better value it may be best to stick with different markets.
