In case the foregone outing between the two at the weekend in the Premier League was anything to go by, we are going to be regaled in a cliffhanger when Brighton and Manchester go at loggerheads today.
The two were engulfed in an enticing and ravishing contest at the weekend, a five goal thriller which had all the twists and turns needed to make a match a humdinger. Tantalisingly poised all across the fixture, the clash didn’t settle into Manchester United’s hands till the final whistle with VAR rewarding a penalty in their favour right in the 96th minute.
It was a defeat which the club hardly deserved though. Not only did they match they opponents toe to toe but were far better on the day.
The home side will be looking to utilise that resplendent showing when the two square off against each other in the Carabao Cup today. This is going to be an extremely closely contested affair with Manchester United just about scampering to a one goal win on the day.
The match between both the teams is most certainly going to be intense, but unfortunately the fans will not be allowed inside the Amex Stadium. This has been done is compliance with the novel coronavirus guidelines. The move is expected to be for the benefit of the players and audiences at large.
