Manchester United v. Brighton Betting Odds & Predictions
The opening 2022-23 Premier League fixture between Manchester United and Brighton & Hove Albion. Man U enter this game with only one loss in six pre-season games. The most resounding win occurred in Thailand and against Liverpool (4-0).
The pre-season was “bright for Brighton” as well, with 3 wins in 5 matches, including a 5-1 thumping against Espanyol on July 30th. This game will be played at Old Trafford on Sunday August 7, with kickoff scheduled at 2pm UK time (3pm CST).

The Ten Hag X-Factor
Malacia, Eriksen and Martinez Make their Man U Debuts
Erik ten Hag is the new head coach for Manchester United. The 52 year-old former Dutch player will likely line up his new recruits Malacia, Eriksen and Martinez as well as (possibly) his squad of young guns, Charlie Savage and Zidane Iqbal, for who an appearance would mark the first EPL game of their young careers.
The big question remains whether Cristiano Ronaldo will start as he played only one single game during the pre-season. If he doesn’t, next up in line would be Frenchman Anthony Martial.
Our prediction for this Manchester United v. Brighton game is a conservative win of 2-1 for Manchester United.
