Former Manchester United striker, Michael Owen, has predicted the Red Devils to beat Brighton 2-0 when both teams clash in tonight’s Premier League fixture at the Amex Stadium.
Man United head to the game following a 2-1 victory against Norwich City in the FA Cup last weekend, while Brighton played a 0-0 draw with Leicester City in their previous Premier League fixture.
“Brighton are slowly putting light between themselves and the relegation zone, and despite fielding their youngest ever team in 107 Premier League games against Leicester City last time out, they did manage to pick up another valuable point,” Owen wrote in his column for BetVictor.
“Manchester United continued their good form in the Premier League with a resounding 3-0 win against Sheffield United at Old Trafford, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to be building a team that can again compete for all the top honours,
“The partnership between Pogba and Fernandes is still in its early stages, but I think that will be the difference between the two sides, and I fancy a comfortable 2-0 win to the Red Devils.”
The match is scheduled at 8:15 pm Nigerian time.
