Robbie Savage predicts outcome of Man Utd vs Brighton clash

Robbie Savage has backed Brighton to pile more misery on Manchester United when the two teams meet on Saturday.

There is a dark cloud over Man United at the moment amid both on and off-the-field issues.

The Red Devils’ potential takeover still looks bleak, both Antony and Jadon Sancho are no longer with the first team for different reasons.

Erik ten Hag has come under intense pressure amid his side’s poor start to the campaign, suffering defeats to Tottenham and Arsenal.

But they have beaten Wolves and Nottingham Forest but their performances were still questionable.

Brighton visit play United tomorrow looking to build on their superb start to the season. The Seagulls have three wins from four matches and beat United both home and away in the league last campaign.

Savage has predicted Roberto De Zerbi’s side to secure a win on United’s home turf.

He told TEAMTalk: “Let’s not forget last year Brighton did the double over Manchester United and I think they’ll win this one at Old Trafford too.

“Manchester United aren’t playing well at all. Okay, they’ve got six points on the board. But you know, realistically they’re lucky to have six points on the board.”

Savage praised Brighton star Kaoru Mitoma who has started the season with one goal and three assists in four league matches.

He believes the Japanese international will be on the scoresheet in a win for Brighton: “I think this Brighton side away from home will play in transition. Remember Mitoma’s goal at Wolves, it was fantastic from that left-hand side.

“I think Mitoma will be on the scoresheet and I’m gonna go with a Brighton 2-1 away win.”
