They’ve been keeping things tight of late as evidenced by their 0-0 at Burnley last weekend. Any chance of getting a huge win in front of their own supporters is priced at (5.05) with Bet9ja.

The Red Devils got the better of fierce rivals Arsenal last time out, winning 2-1 to consolidate second place, five points ahead of Liverpool.

Brighton will look to give Jose Mourinho’s side a run for their money but they are still the favoured side to come out on top at odds of (1.70) with the same betting firm.

Chris Hughton’s men have drawn three of their last five league games and another one is quoted at (3.80).

Manchester United have won their last four meetings with Brighton in all competitions without conceding. Although all these victories came at Old Trafford, the Red Devils are tipped to win to nil on the south coast at (2.77).

The Seagulls surprisingly have won six of their last seven home league games played on a Friday. This could give them a chance to avoid defeat on their turf at (2.10).

On the other side, Man United have never lost a league game on Friday which paves way for them to win either half in this tie at the price of (1.38).

Mourinho’s charges have won their last three away games in the top-flight and though Brighton is a tricky opponent, they are still the favoured side to open proceedings at the Amex Stadium at (1.53).

Paul Pogba has been registering his name on the score sheet lately, scoring thrice in last four Premier League games, that’s as many as he had in his previous 20 outings in the competition.

The Frenchman is valued at (3.50) with Bet9ja to score anytime.
