Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Brighton will be aiming to get their revenge on Manchester United for a 3-2 Premier League loss when the two teams face each other in the EFL Cup last 16. The Seagulls set up a meeting with the Red Devils by beating the likes of Portsmouth (4-0) and Preston (2-0), and they are surely capable of making life difficult for Solskjaer’s troops. Neal Maupay, who looks unstoppable at the start of the season, will be the man to keep an eye on in the home team.
Man Utd, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a shocking Premier League loss to Crystal Palace, with the team eliminating Luton in the EFL Cup, while beating Brighton in the Premier League. However, away win should not be considered this time out as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to rest several first-team regulars in Wednesday’s showdown.
