Manchester United continue their push for the Premier League top four with a trip to face Brighton & Hove Albion on Thursday. The two sides met just a couple weeks ago at Wembley in a tense FA Cup Semi-final battle, with neither team scoring over 120 minutes and United only advancing via penalty shootout victory. Now they meet with three points on the line in the race for European qualification.
United recovered from their disappointing 2-2 draw at Spurs by beating Aston Villa 1-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday. It was another case of missing on good chances to build a lead, but the creation is encouraging.
The Seagulls stumbled a bit following the loss at Wembley, losing 3-1 to Nottingham Forest, but battered Wolverhampton at the weekend to the tune of 6-0. They remain a dangerous and very talented attacking team who are in the mix for Europe for a reason. United were frustrated trying to get anything going against them in London, and should be wary of the opposition as they look to avoid dropping anymore points on the road.
