Brighton are preparing to host Manchester United in the Premier League on Tuesday, June 30.

Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has made his prediction for the clash.

“Brighton have picked up four points from their two games since the restart and it could have been six if they had put away their penalty against Leicester,” said Lawrenson.

“But if you’d offered a win and a draw against Arsenal and Leicester to Seagulls boss Graham Potter before the restart, he would have swum the channel to get it, especially with the teams below them in the table doing next to nothing.

“The pressure is off Brighton a bit here, but I would still back Manchester United, who have also made a very positive return to action amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Their boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made a lot of changes for their FA Cup win over Norwich. They didn’t play well, but they still got through.

“The race for the top four – and even fifth if Manchester City’s Champions League ban for next season is upheld – is going to be an exciting one. United are in the thick of it, and I think they will push on here.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 0-2
