Expert Betting Tips
Bookmakers believe more in the victory of Manchester United. It is difficult to agree with this position, given the current chaos in the location of the Red Devils and problems with the composition. The fans of the Mancunians do not envy - a weak level of play, the conflict between Anthony and removal from the squad, and - a problematic situation between ten Hag and Sancho and the suspension of the latter from the team. It is not excluded that the upcoming game, besides Varane, will miss the second leading center back, Martinez. Lindelöf will be paired with either Maguire or veteran Evans. The end of the game with Arsenal showed what United has to rely on with this pair of defensive players.
Brighton continues to progress under De Zerbi. In the previous EPL campaign, the Seagulls upset their opponents at Old Trafford. This development is not excluded; at the moment, Brighton is stronger than MU, and it must be recognized. For the upcoming game, we suggest to consider a large number of warnings.
