Premier League | Brighton & Hove Albion VS Manchester Utd; Sunday, 19 May at 23:00 GMT +8

Brighton & Hove Albion are aiming to recover from a 1-2 Premier League loss against Chelsea. In that match, they managed 54% possession and 11 shots on goal, with Danny Welbeck scoring for Brighton. However, they have not shown defensive strength in recent games, having seen their defense breached in five of their previous six matches, allowing 11 goals. This trend may not be sustained in this match.

Manchester United, who won 3-2 in the Premier League, will face Newcastle United in a match with a weakened defence. In the previous match, United had 45% possession and 17 attempts on goal, with goals from Kobbie Mainoo, Amad Diallo, and Rasmus Højlund. Newcastle had 21 attempts and 8 on target, with goals from Anthony Gordon and Lewis Hall. Manchester United has been scored against in six of their last six games.

Brighton and Manchester United have played four out of their past head-to-head meetings, with Brighton winning four and Manchester United drawing one.
