Manchester United to climb up

Manchester United are seeking to climb at the top-half of the league table by winning their match against Brighton & Hove Albion. In the league table, it was Brighton who is at a better place, sitting at the sixth of the league table. They are with nine points from the four matches they played so far in the contest. Meanwhile, Man United is surprisingly underwhelming in their campaign, which puts them at the 11th of the league table. From the four matches they played, they currently have just six points, making them hungry to score a win here. Moreover, these two teams are no longer new to each other, since they are one of the mainstays in the contest. During their last three league matches, Brighton is the better team, winning three of those games. This meeting is on September 16, 2023, at 10:00 PM (GMT+8), with Man United as hosts.

Man United are currently facing some internal issues which have affected the performance of the club. This is actually one of the reasons why Man United have performed underwhelmingly this season, which made them eager to improve. Prior to the international break, Man United suffered a heartbreaking 3-1 loss against Arsenal. This result did not helped them at all with their aims of improving their place in the league table. They are now in a desperate need of a win at this point, to finally have a good momentum and climb up of the league table. Fortunately, playing home matches works in favor of Man United, as they remain to be unbeaten at home. There are areas that this squad needs to improve in order to reach their aims coming into this match. Expect a hungry and desperate Man United squad in this match.

Antony, who is currently facing a controversy, remains to be unavailable for Man United until further notice. Moreover, Raphael Varane, Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malcia, Amad Diallo, Kobie Mainoo, and Tom Heaton are all ruled out due to their injuries. Moroever, Sofran Amrabat is doubtful in this match due to his back issues, but Martinez, and Mount could possibly return here.

Brighton on the other hand is the complete opposite of Man United as this squad had a strong start in their campaign. This start is the main reason why this team is at the sixth of the league table, earning nine points. In fact, a win in this match will be huge for them, as it can make them climb to the top three. Although it is early to predict, Brighton’s performance right now is a clear sign that they are a threat. It is just unfortunate that they are from a 3-1 loss against West Ham. That match could have bring them a good momentum. However, they are still an impressive team, as they picked up three wins. Moreover, they also have the best record in the league when it comes to attacks, a proof of their talents.

Brighton remains to be worried for Ferguson’s fitness, due to his knee injury. He will be assessed along with Danny Welbeck, who also have a “minor issue”. However, Julio Enciso, and Jakub Moder remains to be unavailable due to their knee injuries.
