          Brighton vs. Manchester United Prediction, Tips & Stats

          The more intriguing of this weekend's FA Cup semi-finals takes place at Wembley on Sunday as Brighton & Hove Albion face Manchester United.

          Brighton have been a revelation this season and are perhaps the most impressive side in the Premier League when resources are factored into the equation.

          Having lost a number of key players in the transfer market over the past couple of years in addition to their manager, Brighton continue to punch above their weight in the Premier League courtesy of one of Europe's most impressive scouting networks and a succession of savvy managerial appointments.

          They're aiming for a European spot in terms of a league finish but winning this competition would no doubt be their crowing achievement.

          They're behind both Manchester clubs in the hierarchy of favourites but they're a very live underdog, with Roberto De Zerbi's side proving time and again that they're capable of mixing it with the Premier League's elite.

          They enter this game in good form having won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five matches, with the sole loss against Tottenham Hotspur largely the result of egregious officiating.

          Brighton enter this game as underdogs but with their opponents suffering an injury crisis in defence there is a strong feeling amongst many onlookers that The Seagulls can take advantage on Man United's vulnerability.

          Manchester United are entering this came in a fairly precarious position.

          The Red Devils have been struck by an injury crisis that sees them without their two starting centre halves with both Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw both operating at a fraction of their full fitness.

          Injuries to Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane have thrown their whole season into jeopardy with their deputies, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof, having been proved to be liabilities at this level in the past.

          That can best be demonstrated in their, or more so Maguire's, performance against Sevilla in the Europa League on Thursday night where Erik ten Hag's side were comprehensively battered 3-0 in one sided embarrassment for the club that saw a myriad of individual errors, mainly from David de Gea and Harry Maguire, cost them dearly.

          United now enter this game in a difficult spot after such a poor showing in Spain and are no doubt a wounded animal that Brighton will see as prey.

          They're still favourites, but with fitness concerns over multiple key players combined with the already confirmed absentees United aren't a safe bet here.

          For our Brighton vs. Manchester United prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for Brighton.

          Brighton Team News

          Evan Ferguson is out for The Seagulls in what is a huge blow to their chances while Joel Veltman is also set to miss out.

          Even in Ferguson's absence Brighton have a capable deputy in Danny Welbeck, with the former United striker set to lead the line following a goal at Stamford Bridge last time out.

          Jakub Moder, Tariq Lamptey, Adam Lallana and Jeremy Sarmiento are all absent with injury too.

          Man Utd Team News

          Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane both continue to miss out for The Red Devils, with Luke Shaw potentially replacing Harry Maguire alongside Victor Lindelof at the heart of the defence should hit fitness permit it.

          Tom Heaton, Alejandro Garnacho and Donny van de Beek are all injured but Bruno Fernandes is available once again after missing the game in Seville through suspension.

          The Portuguese midfielder will come straight back into the starting XI while Marcus Rashford could replace Jadon Sancho out wide.
