Having notched five wins on the bounce, Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s Manchester United are the Premier League’s form side. They head into Saturday’s clash with Brighton & Hove Albion just six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea; suddenly, a top-four finish doesn’t seem quite so unthinkable.
However, Brighton could well prove stubborn opponents, with Chris Hughton’s side having adapted admirably to life in the top flight after their promotion two years ago. They’re already eight points clear of the relegation zone, and have a better defensive record so far this season than United.
