Simulations I have run project Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Neal Maupay, Daniel James and Bruno Fernandes as the players most likely to score (four of these five players are from Manchester United).
There is a 30.6 percent chance of a draw. In simulations where the game is not a draw, Manchester United, at 45.8 percent, are heavy favorites to beat Brighton and Hove Albion, who have just a 23.5 percent chance to win at home.
The leading scorer for Manchester United is Anthony Martial with a 29% chance of getting one or more goals. When he has at least one goal, Manchester United has a 72.0 percent chance to win.
