Bruno Fernandes takes a corner against Brighton

Who won our United Predictions game on Saturday?

Wednesday 30 September 2020 09:48

We’re just three matches into the new United Predictions game – but we’ve already had our first perfect score!

Two Reds correctly predicted the starting XI, first goalscorer, result and Man of the Match for United’s 3-2 victory over Brighton on Saturday, meaning they won an unsurpassable 125 points.

Because we were unable to split the supporters, a random draw was conducted and we can confirm that 15-year-old Jacob Mason is our winner from the weekend – and his prize is a signed first-team shirt!

Jacob correctly predicted that Ole would choose the following line-up, which also emerged victorious on the south coast in June: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Matic, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial. That earned Jacob the full 65 points possible (five for each player, plus 10 for correct formation).

The young Red also plumped for Rashford as first goalscorer – our equaliser was actually scored by Brighton defender Lewis Dunk, but the no.10 was adjudged as the points scorer after netting 10 minutes into the second-half.

It looked as though Jacob might fall short late on, with United leading 2-1 going into injury-time, but Solly March’s leveller, coupled with Bruno Fernandes’s dramatic penalty, was ultimately enough to ensure a full house of 125 points – he guessed we'd take a 3-2 win and that our Portuguese magnifico would be named star player. Great work, Jacob!


The winner of each United Predictions game receives a 2020/21 home shirt signed by one or more members of the first-team squad.

The same reward also goes out to our monthly top points scorer – plus a free annual subscription to MUTV! If you come out on top for the season, the prize is a matchday experience at Old Trafford that will include travel (either by rail or air) and hotel accommodation - so it’s well worth getting involved!

Brighton v United: It's take two!


When is our Carabao Cup tie, how can you watch it and who are the match officials? Check out the answers...


No, this isn’t a mistake – predictions are still open for our next match which, once again, is against the Seagulls.

This time we face Graham Potter’s side in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup and it’s expected that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will rotate his side ahead of a tough test against Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday.

As per usual, you have until 90 minutes before kick-off on Wednesday (so until 18:15 BST) to submit your starting XI, while you can put forward your first scorer, match result and Man-of-the-Match winner right up until the game gets under way at the Amex Stadium.

Good luck and thanks for playing so far.
