Football Tips: Our trader’s delightful duo of best bets for Brighton v Man Utd on Saturday

Jason Murphy returns to dig out some value for Brighton v Manchester United at 12:30 on Saturday.


Manchester United to Win

We always look for a bit of value and, for me, Man United in the 90 minutes are just a little bit big and I’d be inclined to side with them.

I was impressed with Brighton against Chelsea and they were very good against Newcastle. They’re missing a couple of players like Aaron Connolly and Yves Bissouma for that crazy, acrobatic red card last time!

United’s extended break actually looks to have worked against them a bit and they were a little bit rusty against Palace last week.

I’d like to think they’d be up to speed now and what’s really encouraging me to put United up in 90 minutes as a tip is the way Brighton play out of the back.

That suits United down to the ground. I think they could get a couple of goals off it. United won 3-0 in this fixture at the Amex last season and I’d expect United to do similar this time.

I’m very sweet on Brighton, they have improved under Graham Potter but United to Win, at that price, I think that’s the best bet here.

Bruno Fernandes to Score First

We’ve seen, in the opening rounds of fixtures, how some of these penalties have been given for handball. Bruno Fernandes will be on penalties for Man United and he scored two in this fixture last season.

Brighton play out at the back and it will suit United to try and catch them in possession. Once they turn them over Fernandes will either be a great shout to get on the end of it or icapitalise f Brighton panic and give away a silly penalty.

So, Bruno Fernandes to Score First at a bigger price than Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial is what I’d be looking at for this game.
