Manchester United’s journey for a potential top-four spot continues on Tuesday when the Red Devils visit Brighton on Matchday 32. United is in sixth place and five points back of fourth-place Chelsea. United slipped from fifth to sixth after Wolverhampton’s win over Aston Villa last weekend. With the Blues expected to beat West Ham on Wednesday, United may very well need to win this one to stay within reaching distance.

Manchester United: Trap game? Possibly. Brighton is on a solid run of form and the defense is playing quite well. United has all the talent it needs to run away with this one, but the Red Devils haven’t won an away game in the Premier League since February. While the form has been good lately, this team hasn’t been able to sustain form in a good while. Here’s a chance, but dropping points wouldn’t be a surprise at all.
Brighton: The southern club is on 33 points and not safe just yet. While they rest six points above the relegation zone, they probably need one more win to guarantee safety. They would gladly take a point here, and it’s realistic to think they can get it. In facing Arsenal and Leicester City in their last two games, they’ve only conceded one. There’s some confidence in this side now that should see them secure safety before long.
United’s good form ends here with a poor draw on the road. Pick: Manchester United 1, Brighton 1
