Man United to seal Champions League

Man United to seal Champions League

Man United is aiming to widen their lead in the standings with a win against Brighton & Hove Albion to seal a spot in the Champions League. While Man United is looking to widen their lead in the league table, Brighton is looking for revenge. Man United and Brighton have met each other during the FA Cup, where Brighton ended their campaign with a heartache. Both teams are with a good momentum coming into this match as both are from their respective wins. This meeting will be on May 5, 2023, at 3:00 AM (GMT+8), and it was Brighton who will host this match.

Although these two teams first met each other in 1909, they only have 30 meetings across all competitions. From these 30 meetings, 11 of those are coming in the Premier League. It was the visitors who have the advantage coming into this match, winning 20 of those games. The hosts on the other hand only recorded five wins, and the remaining five ended in draw. However, the hosts have a good momentum coming into this match, being unbeaten in their last four league games. From those four matches, they were able to win thrice, keeping a clean sheets in those three as well. The visitors on the other hand is hoping to end their misfortunes on the road. They are doing well at home, but playing on the road is a different story.

Man United are currently at the fourth of the league table with 63 points, and a win could bring them at the third. They are aiming to finally seal a spot in the Champions League here, which is why they need wins. Although they are with four point lead with the team at the fifth, it does not ensure them a spot in the European stage. Along with this, they are fortunate to return on winning ways against Aston Villa on their last match. Before that 1-0 win, they are from a 2-2 draw against the Tottenham Hotspur. This is not impossible as they are doing well recently, being unbeaten in their last five league games. Man United is aiming to upset Brighton once again, just like what they did during the FA Cup last month.

Despite the improvements in the treatment room, Man United still have lots of guys who will be unavailable here. de Beek, Garnacho, Heaton, Jones, Varane, and Martinez all remains to be absent due to their injuries. Scott McTominay on the other hand is also expected to be out here, following a knock he experienced.

Brighton on the other hand is at the eighth of the league table with 52 points. However, if they can win in this game, they could be at the sixth with 55 points. Brighton are confident coming into this match, as they are from a 6-0 win against the Wolves. This dominating win is so far their biggest win in the Premier League. All thank to Danny Welbeck, Pascal Gross, and Deniz Undav, who all scored a goal for Brighton. When going against Man United in the league, they hold a back-to-back wins against them. In fact, they had a 2-1 win on their last meeting way back in August. They are aiming for a double over here, which will be their first against Man United if ever. However, they need to address their inconsistencies as it might bring them in a less safer spot in the league.

Jakub Moder, Tariq Lamptey, Jeremy Sarmiento, and Adam Lallana all remain to be unavailable in his match. Evan Ferguson on the other hand is a doubt here, following his ankle concern. Joel Veltman on the other hand is still unsure here, as he was seen limping during their last game.
