Just three days after Manchester United beat Norwich City in extra-time to advance to the semi-final of the FA Cup, United find themselves back in Premier League action, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side facing a trip to the Amex Stadium to take on Brighton.

Solskjaer is likely to recall Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Nemanja Matic, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Victor Lindelof to the starting lineup against the Seagulls, whilst Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe still struggling with injury ahead of the game.

A win against Brighton would see United move up into fifth place, and just two points behind fourth place Chelsea, with the Blues facing West Ham on Wednesday.

So, what will the final score be on Tuesday? And what team will Solskjaer go with?

Ahead of the game, we used FIFA 20 to simulate the outcome of Brighton vs Manchester United to get a score prediction.

Brighton vs Manchester United simulated on FIFA 20

To set up this simulation, we used kick-off mode within FIFA 20 but didn’t select a team to control; we then selected the teams and watched the match play out by itself, to give us a unique prediction.

The AI difficulty was set to legendary, with the line-up updated with the latest transfers, injuries and suspensions.

We predict that Brighton could set up in a 4-2-3-1 (narrow) formation, with their line-up as follows: Ryan; Lamptey, Dunk, Duffy, Burn; Propper, Bissouma; Gross, Trossard, Mooy; Maupay.

We predict that Manchester United could set up in a 4-2-3-1 (wide) formation, with the line-up as follows: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Matic, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial.

Manchester United had real control over this match from minute one, with Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba controlling the game from central midfield.

United’s first chance in this simulation came in the twelfth minute, with Marcus Rashford getting on the end of a cross that was flashed across the Brighton box, but Ryan managed to turn the England striker’s effort wide of the post.

But United weren’t to be denied and took the lead through Anthony Martial ten minutes before the break.

The Frenchman received a pass from Fernandes and turned sharply in the box to wriggle free of his marker, before firing home with his weaker foot.

And it took just seven minutes into the second-half for United to double their lead on the counter-attack, with Fernandes and Greenwood punishing Brighton, who were pushing forwards and leaving space in behind their defence.

Fernandes burst clear on the right and played a brilliant pass across the pitch into the path of Mason Greenwood, who produced a clinical finish to make it 2-0 on the breakaway.

The away side could have made it 3-0 just before the end, with substitute Juan Mata having an effort saved by Ryan, who did well to turn the Spaniard’s shot over the bar from close range.

But in the end it was a straightforward win for United at the Amex Stadium.

Full-time score: Brighton 0-2 Manchester United

Here are the full-time match stats.

Bruno Fernandes was the Man of the Match in this game, setting up both of United’s goals against Brighton.

FIFA 20 predicts that Brighton will hardly lay a glove on Manchester United on Tuesday night, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side dominant in every aspect of this clash.

This simulation predicts a Fernandes masterclass that leads to goals from Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood, to seal what could be an important three points for the Reds.

Of course this is just a bit of fun ahead of what could be a crucial game for United, so let’s see what happens on Tuesday night, but it is interesting to see how FIFA 20 predicts the fixture could play out.

What do you think the score will be?
