Manchester United vs Brighton epl 10.11.2019

With just one win from their last six Premier League (PL) matches (W1, D2, L3), Manchester United enter the round two points behind visiting Brighton & Hove Albion. Curiously, despite a poor season so far, United have been in front at half-time a joint-league high seven times. However, they dropped points on four of those occasions - the joint worst in the league.

The ‘Red Devils’ have scored an average of just 1.18 goals per PL match, and just 27.27% of their league matches have featured three goals or more. Indeed, United have now scored precisely one goal in four straight home league fixtures.

Brighton, meanwhile, has won three of their last four league matches, and two of the last three PL H2Hs vs United. An important caveat - all those wins have come at home. Away, the ‘Seagulls’ have scored just one goal across their last four PL road trips (D1, L3). 

Cautious from the start, Brighton has been drawing at half-time a league-high eight times (72.72%) - at least two more than any other side. Putting up a fight, Brighton has been shown more yellow cards than their opponents in four of their last five PL matches.

Players to watch: Marcus Rashford has three goals in United’s last three competitive games - three of his seven goals so far (in all competitions) have been penalties.

Neal Maupay, meanwhile, has two goals in his last three matches for Brighton - three of his four PL strikes have come in the second half.

Stat attack: The last four league H2Hs have averaged just 1.75 yellow cards, and the goals in these matches have mainly come in the first half (60%).

Five of the last six United home matches (in all competitions) have featured two goals or less (after 90 minutes).

Both teams haven’t scored in 63.64% of Brighton’s PL matches this season.
