After a disappointing end to the Europa League, the Red Devils will be all set to travel to Wembley Stadium for a FA Cup semi-final.
Manchester United is now only left with a hope to lift the FA Cup trophy, as they are knocked out of the Europa League. This is the third semi-final appearance for Brighton and they won’t be an easy team to defeat.

Manchester United will be low on morale because of their unprecedented defeat in the 2nd leg of the Europa League fixture.
We expect Brighton to reach the FA Cup Final.
The betting tip is...
Welbeck to score the first goal.
With 49 points and 14 wins, Brighton is in 7th position in the Premier League. They have improved their game as compared to last season.
The Seagulls will be confident as they defeated Chelsea in their last fixture by 1-2. With 58% of possession, Brighton made a comeback immediately after conceding a goal at the 13th minute. Danny Welbeck and Julio Enciso scored for Brighton.
Joel Veltman and Evan Ferguson will be out of action because of thigh and ankle injuries respectively.
Predicted Lineup: Sanchez; Gross, Webster, Dunk, Estupinan; Caicedo, Mac Allister; March, Enciso, Mitoma; Welbeck
The Red Devils will be disappointed with their performance in the 2nd leg of the Europa League quarter-final. The 3-0 defeat against Sevilla will be a huge motivation for the visitors to bounce back and reach the final game of the FA Cup.
Manchester United has shown inconsistency in the European tournaments, but their Premier League form has been outstanding.
Harry Maguire will be suspended for the semi-final fixture as he picked up his second yellow card against Fulham.
Predicted Lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Shaw, Malacia; Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Weghorst
The magnitude of this game is high and both teams are under pressure to perform. Manchester United has a long list of injuries while Brighton is in a good form. We predict a win for Brighton by 2-1 against Manchester United.
