The 20-time league champions are an entirely different beast under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer these days, expect another dominant display from them here

Manchester United will be gunning for a consecutive seventh win under their new gaffer when they host Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford for their Premier League matchday 23 fixture on Saturday evening.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given Manchester United a new lease of life since he arrived in mid-December, with the Red Devils winning convincingly all six games under his watch.

When the Norwegian manager first arrived, the team struggled to keep clean sheets in matches they had won emphatically. But that has now changed, as the Old Trafford outfit have now kept three consecutive clean sheets in their last three competitive victories.

They are looking good to continue in that trend on their home turf against Chris Hughton’s Brighton on Saturday – and the outcome is quoted at massive (2.00) odds as per Bet365.

An outcome that sees both sides share the spoils at the end of 90 minutes is offered at (5.00) odds.

The Seagulls come into this one on the back of a 1-0 defeat on their home ground to Liverpool. As they have lost on their last two visits to this ground, they are considered as huge underdogs with the same betting firm at odds of (11.00).

Going by their recent changes in fortune, it’s easy to spot why the Red Devil’s are now being tagged as clear favourites at (1.28) odds with Bet365, despite losing the reverse fixture 3-2 in August.
