Live streaming epl Brighton vs Manchester united 2018 .
Brighton defied all odds last season and survived the drop last season. Their opening fixture was one to forget, but the AMEX Stadium has been their fortress over the past three years. They welcome Manchester United in their first home game of the 2018/19 Premier League (PL) season.
Three months have passed since Brighton sealed their place in the PL, with a dramatic 1-0 win over the Red Devils under the lights in last season’s corresponding fixture. That win was part of what is currently a run of just one defeat (in all competitions) at home for Brighton in their last eight.
To repeat that famous result here, the Seagulls (BRI) will have to improve massively from their performance in the 2-0 defeat to Watford. After his side failed to land a single shot on target, manager Chris Hughton didn’t pull any verbal punches after the game, simply stating: “We didn’t deserve to get anything”.
After a pre-season of unrest in the Man United camp, the 2-1 opening weekend win over Leicester finally saw manager Jose Mourinho give his men praise, with the ‘Special One’ stating that he saw “Lots of glimpses of the type of football we (Man United) wanted to play (in pre-season)”.
Players to watch: Brighton’s veteran striker Glenn Murray is aiming to improve on last season’s tally of 12 goals.
Romelu Lukaku scored 16 goals in the PL last season. His current personal record is 25 goals for Everton in 2016/17.
Stat attack: Brighton conceded five own goals last season, which was the highest tally in the PL.
40% of Brighton’s conceded goals were from set piece situations last season.
Last season, referee Kevin Friend awarded the least yellow cards per game. He showed an average of 2.19 per game and no red cards.
