Manchester United are aiming for a magnificent seventh successive victory on Saturday afternoon.

Brighton provide the opposition, but Chris Hughton's men face a tough task against a rejuvenated home side.

The men from Manchester have won all six of their fixtures since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in the dugout.

However, the Seagulls have won the previous two meetings between these teams - including a thrilling 3-2 win at Amex Stadium back in August - and are available at 10/1 (11.0) to come out on top on this occasion.

The draw is chalked up as a 9/2 (5.50) chance with William Hill ahead of Saturday's renewal.

Team news

Eric Bailly is available again after serving a three-match suspension, but Chris Smalling and Alexis Sanchez could return from injury.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh and Mat Ryan remain on international duty at the Asian Cup, whilst Jose Izquierdo, Yves Bissouma and Bernardo are all doubtful for the Seagulls.

Shot-shy Seagulls?

Brighton have failed to score on their last four visits to Old Trafford, a statistic that the visitors will be desperate to put to bed this weekend.

Nevertheless, William Hill offer just 3/4 (1.75) that Solskjaer's side shut out the Seagulls once again on Saturday afternoon.

Six of the last seven matches between the teams has produced fewer than three goals and William Hill offer 6/5 (2.20) that the trend continues in Manchester this weekend.

Prediction

Manchester United have momentum behind them and Solskjaer's side may well deliver again this weekend.

William Hill offer 19/20 (1.95) that United win without conceding against the Seagulls, a selection which would have landed in each of United's last seven victories against Brighton.

Furthermore, the men from Manchester have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three wins.
