EPL: Mark Lawrenson predicts scoreline of Man United vs Brighton


Former Liverpool star, Mark Lawrenson, has predicted Manchester United to claim a 2-1 victory against Brighton in today’s Premier League clash.

Lawrenson believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will take all three points against Brighton at Old Trafford, adding that he expects a tight game between both teams.

Man United are currently in the 2nd position on the Premier League table with 17 points behind leaders Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, while their opponents Brighton are down in 16th place.

“Brighton have won their past 2 games, and they’re suddenly scoring for fun,” Lawrenson told BBC Sport.

“They are now 6 points above the bottom three, which is a lot at this stage of the season, and with a much better goal difference than the teams below them too.

“So, the Seagulls head to Old Trafford on a high, and they are probably still wondering how they lost 3-2 to Man United at the start of the season – the winning goal, a Bruno Fernandes penalty, was scored after the full-time whistle, at the end of an absolutely crazy game that Brighton should have won.

“Things might be pretty tight this time too, but I’m going for another United win, Man United 2, Brighton 1.”

The kick-off time for Man United vs Brighton is 7.30 pm.
