Chris Hughton’s men secured their English top-flight status with a 1-0 victory over the Old Trafford giants in front of their home supporters back in May. And that feat may bolster some confidence in them ahead of this showdown.
The Seagulls were undefeated in their four home league matches played on a Sunday last season, while Jose Mourinho’s charges lost four of their last five away games played on Sunday. Despite this, the hosts are priced at a juicy (5.00) with BetKing to cause an upset, having come off the back of a 2-0 loss to Watford last weekend.
On the other hand, the 20-time league title holders kicked-off their 2018-19 campaign on the front foot, recording a 2-1 victory over Leicester City on their turf on Friday night. Though they have failed to score in their last two outings away from home in the league last season, they’re still chalked up at odds of (1.75) to claim a successive victory.
A no winner, no vanquished state after stoppage time is priced at odds of (3.45) with the same betting outfit.
The last three meetings between these two sides has seen a draw within the opening 30 minutes. iI won’t be out of tune backing a likely outcome, which seems rewarding here at odds of (1.65) with BetKing.
