Only days removed from their dramatic showdown on the South Coast, Brighton will once again play host to Manchester United when both sides turn their attention back to EFL Cup duties.

Missing a string of golden opportunities at the Amex on Saturday lunchtime and left heartbroken after seeing Solly March’s injury-time strike ruled out by Bruno Fernandes, the Seagulls still impressed many and will be smelling an upset in midweek.

On the flip side, while the former Premier League champions might have managed to just about head back to Manchester with all three points over the weekend, they have drastically struggled to find top gear since making a return to action.

However, although they might be a squad low on confidence, they did manage to extend on their eye-catching record against the Seagulls and will be hoping to make a far more polished display on Wednesday.

Now winning their last four straight meetings against Brighton, you might be interested to know that a similar away victory on the South Coast can be found priced at 7/10 with 888sport.

Brighton shines in defeat

While on paper Brighton might have failed to build off of their eye-catching 3-0 romp away at Newcastle last week, Graham Potter took a string of positives away from his side’s display on Saturday lunchtime.

Hitting the word work five times and asking Manchester United a string of questions, the one-time Swansea boss would have been glad to see leading marksman Neal Maupay extend on his early-season purple patch.

While the former Brentford striker might have eventually given away that controversial last-gasp penalty over the weekend, the 24-year-old did convert from the spot and should once again lead the line in midweek.

Also bagging a brace in the Seagull’s remarkable romp at St. James’ Park last week, Maupay has now recorded three Premier League goals in his back-to-back appearances and can be found priced at with 15/8 William Hill to extend on his tally at the Amex.

Elsewhere, expected to ring the changes on Wednesday night, Potter could be tempted to hand the likes of Bernardo, Davy Pröpper and summer arrival Joel Veltman a return.

Rashford to lead the charge?

With Ole Gunnar Solskjear the first to admit that his side were extremely lucky to have left the Amex with all three points and their first Premier League victory on Saturday, the Norwegian tactician will know that his side must make a string of improvements.

Still with many around Old Trafford unhappy that their side have failed to make any real alterations to their squad this summer, United’s 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace on the opening weekend really outlined some underlying issues, particularly defensively.

Calling on a far more polished display in midweek as his side turn their attention to EFL Cup duties at the Amex, Solskjear could be calling on Marcus Rashford to lead their charge on the South Coast.

Finishing a wonderful solo strike over the weekend and also finding the net in United’s 3-0 win away at Championship outfit Luton last week, the 22-year-old holds an eye-catching record against Brighton.

Bagging three goals in his last four meetings against the Seagulls, you might be interested to know that the England international can be found priced at with 6/4 Paddy Power to extend his tally on Wednesday night.
