Romelu Lukaku FGS and Manchester United to win 2-0 @ 10/1 with Coral

Jose Mourinho has undoubtedly improved Manchester United as a club since he arrived in the summer of 2016, but it is becoming clear just how big a job was left when Sir Alex Ferguson retired three years earlier. The three managers since have spent over a billion pounds and the Red Devils are a shadow of their former selves. Despite Mourinho leading them to the League Cup and Europa League last season, that was never more evident than on Tuesday night when, against the odds, Spanish side Sevilla toppled them at Old Trafford, sending them packing from the Champions League. Manchester City can wrap up the Premier League title by beating United in April, so this weekend’s FA Cup quarter final tie with Brighton has taken on even greater significance.

Chris Hughton takes his Seagulls side to Old Trafford in good shape, despite losing to Everton last weekend. Relegation is looking unlikely at this point, with 34 points to their name and eight games remaining. Though it is still a mathematical possibility, Brighton will be able to come into this game free of pressure. But Romelu Lukaku was the only player to come out of the Sevilla game with any credit, and we think he’ll help United on their way to Wembley and the last four.

Form

Aside from the Sevilla loss, United have not been too bad of late, particularly at Old Trafford. Recent wins over Liverpool and Chelsea have put them in control of the race for second place. Before Tuesday, they were on a run of five games unbeaten in all competitions.

888SPORT HAVE GOT YOU COVERED!

Brighton are 11th in the Premier League with just one defeat in their last eight games.

Team News

Manchester United will be without Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and Zlatan Ibrahimovic for this one.

Only Steve Sidwell is out for Brighton, who will start top scorer Glenn Murray in attack.
