Man Utd to get back on track against Brighton
The Red Devils host the Seagulls at Old Trafford on Saturday at 3pm UK time. United have a great record against Brighton in recent times, with 10 wins and 5 draws in their last 16 games against Brighton. Mourinho’s men come off a tough defeat to take against Basel where the old cliché of ‘take your chances when you’re on top’ was the summary of the game.
However, in the Premier League Mourinho’s men are on the best run of form in Old Trafford at Old Trafford since Alex Ferguson, winning 7 matches in a row compared to Fergie’s record of 10. United fans will be happy to see a change in the full back position on Saturday, as Darmian was useless in terms of crossing and no pace down the left through Daley Blind. I personally like Blind, but not at a left back role. He was brought in as a defensive midfielder, so I do feel for him. He’s got great passing technique however can’t see where he fits in long term.
I would like to see Luke Shaw start, if Mourinho does want to get rid of him then give him a chance to prove him right. United fans will be thinking of the potential signing of Danny Rose, but Shaw due to injuries and managers not trusting him did not meet the potential we all so envisaged.
Paul Pogba has re-invigorated United and if they can get the lead before he comes off after 70 mins, then United will cruise to victory.
Albion are currently on an unbeaten run of five games following a 2-2 draw with Stoke City at the Amex Stadium on Monday night. They've beaten West Brom, West Ham, Newcastle United and Swansea already this season, as well as claiming decent draws with Southampton and Everton.
With two away games at Watford and Arsenal coming up over the course of next week, this is a must win game for United.
United to win 3-0 (Paddy Power 11/2) and Lukaku to score first (Paddy Power 13/5)
