EPL 21/22 - Week 25

 Man Utd v Brighton - Home

These are turbulent times for Man Utd and the club are in a desperate need of a change in fortune on and off the field. Never mind the shocking lack of results on the field, they have to contend with the Mason Greenwood affair, reported changing room rifts and player discontent, not to mention uncertain futures for Ronaldo and other stars and the prime question who will be the next permanent manager. And let's not forget that the Glazers dumped a huge amount of stock at a discounted price not so long back. 

The positive news is that they are not losing matches. However, they are not winning them either and draws indeed do not help their push for a UCL spot. The arrival of Brighton later today can help them go back on a winning track. The squad is way too talented to be dismissed. Harry McGuire has been feeble at the back altely but he should be back to his dominant self sooner than later. No one doubts that Ronaldo will find his goal scoring touch again. Sancho is scoring, De Gea looks back on song. 

Brighton are no slouch, they have a good record on the road. They will certainly complicate things for the Red Devils as they are resilient, as they have shown against Chelsea lately. They cannot be dismissed but I can't see the hosts losing this one. With some luck and realism in front of goal, Man Utd have every chance to edge this encounter. At current market prices, they look a good deal as an outright win.

Win: Man Utd
