The Reds are unbeaten in the league this season having swept aside Everton in a 5-0 rout last time out. Marc Skinner&aposs side secured a 2-1 win over Aston Villa on the opening day of the season before drawing with both Arsenal and Leicester. While the Seagulls opened the season with a 2-1 win over Everton, they have fallen short in all three WSL games since.
United have won six of their eight top-tier clashes with Brighton. Last term the Reds put eight goals past the struggling Seagulls, notching two 4-0 wins.
Despite Brighton&aposs underwhelming start to the season, United manager Marc Skinner has warned his side not to take Sunday&aposs opponents lightly. We don&apost look at any other team&aposs results,” he said. “If you only judge your confidence off results then, in my opinion, youre not doing something right because it&aposs about performances. In the game we lost in Europe, I felt we outperformed PSG, so I&aposm happy with our performances.
When I&aposm watching other teams performances it&aposs a lot closer this year and it&aposs not like youre going to smash and grab – no team smashes and grabs and then defends for 90 minutes, were all always creating chances. I think were going to see a lot of variance in scores but these are the types of games that we have to collect three points.
“But we don&apost believe we deserve to get anything unless we earn it. This is a game where you have to earn it.
Brighton are a very good team, we have to make sure we perform to the best to beat them. It&aposs going to be a tight pitch, late kick-off, all these factors, but weve got to hit the ground running. Try to dominate the ball and if there&aposs a weakness in Brightons team weve got to try and find it.
