Former Ajax boss Erik Ten Haag takes charge of Man Utd for his first competitive fixture as the Premier League makes its long-awaited return this weekend with Brighton, the visitors to Old Trafford.

Following a miserable campaign last season, United have plenty of improvements to make under the talented Dutchman, and they seem to have invested wisely this summer with Ten Haag adding former Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez, Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen and promising Dutch full-back Tyrell Malacia to his squad.

However, the continued Cristiano Ronaldo transfer saga may continue to undermine United´s progress until the close of the summer transfer window, and it remains unclear what kind of role the Portuguese legend will play in this fixture.

Brighton arrives at Old Trafford having enjoyed an excellent season under Graham Potter, eventually finishing 9th in the division, a full 16 points clear of the relegation zone, while they lost just 1 of their last 9 league matches having lost each of the previous 6 in succession.

Manchester United vs Brighton Betting Tips - BTTS

This looks a tough fixture to call with Brighton, very much not to be underestimated, although the loss of Yves Bissouma to Spurs and the expected departure of Marc Curcurella to Chelsea could cause Potter´s side some problems in the coming weeks.

On their travels, Brighton have proven an excellent side in 2022, losing only 3 of their last 13 away PL matches, although one of those defeats was at this venue in February.

Still, Brighton scored a sensational 4:0 victory when these sides met at the beginning of May on the South Coast and the visitors will fancy their chances of causing United plenty of opening day problems.

3 of the last 4 meetings between these sides at Old Trafford saw BTTS, while the visitors have only failed to score in 2 of their last 13 away PL matches. In addition, United have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 5 home PL matches at the end of last season.

Ultimately, United will be fancied to have enough quality to claim the points, but Brighton have proven themselves to be an improving side under Potter, and we expect both sides to score in what should prove a compelling and hard-fought contest where the points could easily be shared.
