Form Guide

In their last five games in all competitions, Brighton have one win, two draws and two losses.

After a goalless first half, Burnley opened the scoring in the 74th minute through Josh Brownhill. However, just five minutes later, an own goal from Arijanet Muric rescued a 1 - 1 draw for Brighton.

The visit from Man City did not see Brighton back to winning ways. A goal from Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring and a brace from Phil Foden put Brighton 3 - 0 down at halftime. Julian Alvarez added another in the second half to give Man City the 4 - 0 win.

Another big loss for Brighton came against Bournemouth. Brighton had just one shot on target in 70% of the possession, as Marcos Senesi, Enes Unal and Justin Kluivert all scored in the 3 - 0 win for Bournemouth.

However, Brighton finally bounced back with a big win over Aston Villa. Villa had just one shot on target as Joao Pedro found the back of the net in the 87th minute to give Brighton the 1 - 0 win.

Joel Veltman opened the scoring for Brighton in the 18th minute but Sean Longstaff equalised in first half added time. However, neither side could find another goal and had to settle for the 1 - 1 draw.

Brighton also take on Chelsea on Wednesday in the Premier League.

In their last five games in all competitions, Manchester United have two wins, one draw and two losses.

In the FA Cup Semi Final, Man United took on Championship side Coventry. Scott McTominay opened the scoring for United and Maguire doubled the lead before halftime. Bruno Fernandes added a third on the hour, but late goals from Ellis Simms and Callum O’Hare and a 95th minute penalty from Haji Wright forced a 3 - 3 draw. The subsequent penalty shootout saw Ben Sheaf and O’Hare both miss to give United the 4 - 2 win.

Back in the Premier League, Man United hosted Sheffield United. Jayden Bogle opened the scoring for The Blades but Maguire scored to make it level at halftime. Ben Brereton Diaz regained the lead for Sheffield United but a brace from Fernandes and a goal from Rasmus Hojlund gave Man United the 4 - 2 win.

Antony opened the scoring for United with just ten minutes to go but an 87th minute penalty from Zeki Amdouni rescued a big 1 - 1 draw for Burnley.

In a massive shock, United slumped to a massive loss at Selhurst Park. United had just two shots on target as Michael Olise grabbed a brace and was joined on the scoresheet by Jean-Philippe Mateta and Tyrick Mitchell in the 4 - 0 win for Crystal Palace.

United had just two shots on target against Arsenal as Leandro Trossard scored the only goal of the game in the 20th minute to give Arsenal the 1 - 0 win.

Man United also take on Newcastle on Wednesday.

FlashPicks Prediction

Both sides have had a somewhat underwhelming season and are likely to go out on a draw. Pedro and Fernandes are also likely to get their names on the scoresheet. Brighton 2 - 2 Manchester United
