Brighton v Manchester United Preview

The high-flying Brighton team square off against Manchester United in the semi-final of the FA Cup at Wembley – the winner of which will face Manchester City in the finals. Having eased past the likes of Middlesbrough, Liverpool, Stoke and Grimsby, the Seagulls now face probably their most stern test in the FA Cup so far. Roberto De Zerbi’s men are probably the most inform side in the English division right now, with their style of play attracting many neutrals to watch them. Brighton have lost just a single game in their last nine matches in all competitions – coming at the hands of Tottenham where VAR robbed the Seagulls of a clear penalty. Having breezed past Chelsea last weekend, De Zerbi’s men will be optimistic of a positive result against Manchester United who were knocked out of the European League in midweek. Although Brighton have never won a game at Wembley, their incredible goal scoring form against an injury hit Manchester United defense could lead to a comfortable afternoon for the Seagulls.

Manchester United on the other hand enter this game having been knocked out of the European League at the hands Sevilla. The Red Devils’ though have themselves to be blamed as the tie should’ve been finished off in the first leg itself. However, poor finishing and bad decision making at the back led to Sevilla getting back into the tie at Old Trafford. Disaster-class by De Gea and Maguire at the back in the second leg at Seville led to United being humbled 3-0 at the hands of En-Nesyri – ending their European trophy ambitions. Ten Haag’s men however still dream about the domestic double as they face a high-flying Brighton. With just two wins in their last six away games, United will be vary of their away from, having failed to score in three of these matches. Although Brighton have never defeated Manchester United in any of their previous five FA Cup meetings, defeats against the Seagulls in the last two Premier League games won’t fill Ten Haag’s men with confidence. However, having scored at least three goals in each of their FA Cup victories this season, Manchester United will be hopeful of reaching their 21st FA Cup final, matching Arsenal’s all-time record.
