PREDICTION
An early start to this weekend’s Premier League proceedings as Brighton play host to Manchester United. Chris Hughton’s men will be looking to get those final few points to make sure they get over the line in what has been a cut-throat battle to stave off relegation.

The Seagulls are five points clear of the drop going into this game and they may well need everyone last one of those if they are to beat the drop. That is due to them having such a difficult end of season run in.

Manchester United know that a win on the South Coast will all but assure of them of a second-place finish, and not only that though there is the small matter of the FA Cup final on the horizon.

In addition to this, Jose Mourinho’s group of players will undoubtedly be competing for a place in that showpiece final, so everyone will need to be at their best if they are to be selected at Wembley in a couple of weeks.

Brighton turned in a spirited performance against Tottenham last month and will need to offer something similar if they are to get anything from this encounter. However, United are finding their groove again and should have too much at their disposal for the Seagulls. An away win looks the most likely outcome.
