It has been six of the best for Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer as the Norwegian’s perfect start to life as caretaker manager continues. This weekend he will look to make it lucky number seven when Brighton make the visit to Old Trafford.
Chris Hughton’s men are currently 13th in the Premier League table and have just enough daylight between themselves and the drop zone at present, this means that they are not necessarily looking over their shoulders at the moment.
At the same time, they cannot afford to think that the job is done in terms of survival as there are still four months of the season left to play. Something that suggests that they are going to need to keep picking up points along the way.
They played host to league leaders Liverpool last weekend and were unfortunate to be bested by a second half Mohamed Salah penalty, as Jurgen Klopp’s men returned to winning ways at The AMEX Stadium.
That defeat for Brighton meant that they have only won once in their last six matches, a streak that is unlikely to be improved this weekend as they go up against the form team in the Premier League right now.
This Untied side now have their tails up and will be confident of knocking anyone out of their way. Brighton have picked the wrong time to play them, as all signs point to a comfortable home win at Old Trafford.
