Brighton vs Manchester United: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news and h2h results today

18

An odd facet of the fixture list means the Red Devils have played more matches than any other team going into the weekend, with a 15-day break before they close out their campaign at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace on May 22.

With a top-four finish all but gone, the Europa League is United’s best bet for continental football next season and victory over Brentford last time out at least ended a three-game winless run to cement their grip on sixth position.

Brighton cruised past Wolves a week ago as they look to bag a top-half finish – something the club has never achieved in its 121-year history.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of today’s game…

Date, kick-off time and venue

Brighton vs Manchester United is scheduled for a 5.30pm BST kick-off today, Saturday May 7, 2022.
