Man United are one of the strangest clubs in the world. One minute they look like they’re winning the league, the next, they fall apart. In the pre-season, they beat Liverpool 4-0, Melbourne Victory 4-1, and Crystal Palace 3-1. Then they drew with Villa and Rayo and lost against Atlético again. Every rebuilding process takes time and the world knows that the problems run deep at the Red Devils. They’ve been linked to loads of players but only brought in Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia, and Eriksen so far. They’re all good players but others might be avoiding United on purpose.
The two sides met three months ago when Brighton beat United 4-0. Surely, this week’s match can’t be any worse than that. Because of their stature, new management, and a few good pre-season performances, United are the favourites for Sunday. But Brighton beat Espanyol 5-1 on 30 July. So who knows what’ll happen in Week 1? We’re expecting Man United to win but the match could be a close one. The chance for a draw is also fairly possible.
