Friday 4th May 2018


Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester United 8pm kick off


Brown (ACL injury) out
Sidwell (back injury) out

Despite not having won in 6 matches, and losing half of those six games, BHA look to be safe from relegation this season. Which is lucky as they still have the other half of Manchester to play after this match and then Liverpool to end their season! Well done to Chris Hughton for managing to drag them to safety despite their horrible end of season run-in. They have three games to enjoy playing against the big boys to have fun and see what they can do.
Most important player: Matthew Ryan. He could have a busy few games to end the season with.


Lukaku (ankle injury expected return 19th May) out
Jones (knock) slight doubt
Romero (knee injury) out

The Red Devils go into this game in good form, five wins in their last six Premier League matches, added to the victory over Spurs to reach the FA Cup final. However now they have nothing to play for, in reality, so it could be a case of players being wary of picking up knocks and missing the cup final. Jose Mourinho's man-management skills will be tested to the fullest to ensure his players are not distracted by the forthcoming cup final.
Most important player: Marcus Rashford. With Lukaku out injured, the England striker has a chance to stake his claim for a cup final place.


Defining Battle: two teams with nothing to play for. The big battle will be the mental one to raise their games.
