Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo is priced at 6/5 to score in their opener, despite him being unlikely to feature from the start.

Previous meetings

Manchester United’s last meeting with Brighton was certainly one to forget after they were hammered 4-0 on the south coast back in May.

Goals from Moises Caicedo, Marc Cucurella, Pascal Gross and Leandro Trossard secured the shock victory for the Seagulls and became their biggest ever win in the top division, while it was United’s fifth consecutive away league defeat.

Prior to last season’s loss, the Red Devils had a much better record against Brighton, winning all of their seven previous meetings.
