Brighton v Man United (2000 BST, Sky Sports Premier League)

Brighton welcome Manchester United to the Amex Stadium on Friday night with both sides still having something to play for.

Jose Mourinho's United will be looking to secure second in the Premier League, whilst points for Brighton will push them further away from relegation trouble.

Brighton have lost on both occasions they've faced Manchester United this season, with Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic on target for a 2-0 win in the FA Cup back in March.

There was little in it at Old Trafford in the league as Lewis Dunk's own goal was the difference in the 1-0 defeat for Chris Hughton's side.

Despite there being some aims still to hit for these two sides, I'm not sure if this will be an action-filled classic.

That said, Manchester United are in great form having won eight of their last ten in all competitions.

They'll be looking to capitalise on the fact that Brighton haven't won in any of their last seven games, with a loss to United included in that run.

United's away form sees them with three wins in as many matches, with over 4.5 goals coming in two of those games.

I'm not sure this one will be to the same extent, although over 2.5 goals is available at 21/20. I'm looking towards a lack of corners given the track record in recent weeks.

Four of Brighton's last five have seen under 10 corners, with the same being applicable for their last five home games.

Under 9.5 corners is available at 11/8, with under 10.5 coming back at 10/11 if you want a bit more of a buffer zone.

Another area that provides interesting value is a player to hit the woodwork.

United have hit the woodwork on 15 occasions this season, that's more than 16 other teams in the Premier League.

Jesse Lingard has done so more than any of his team-mates. He can be found at 8/1 to strike the woodwork on Friday night which is intriguing value to me.

Score prediction: Brighton 1-2 Man United (Sky Bet odds: 8/1)

Best bet: Under 9.5 corners at 11/8

Alternative: Jesse Lingard to hit the woodwork at 8/1
