I think United is a better fit for Brighton, but on the other hand they are quite simply a better football team.

All things considered I'd give Brighton a 50% chance against Fulham and a 30% chance against United.

I think that’s why on one level I would prefer them - we can beat them with ‘de zerbi‘ ball - Fulham really get under our skin, frustrate play, lots of dark arts., interruption of our fluidity- they are also punching above their weight this season - it might make it difficult for us to play on our own terms.

We have a good recent record against Man U and although I agree they are a better team but we definitely could be on the day if we play our best football.

Utd are away at Sevilla on the Thursday. Second leg of their Europa League match. Sure, they’ve got a big squad but this has to suit us because some players will play both and be leggy. Will also mean we will be playing on the Sunday. So, Utd for me!

Yeah kind of how I'm thinking as well even though I ultimately believe the difference in quality would make United a more dangerous opponent.

But I think beating United in the semi would increase the chances of winning against City in the final. Beating United would give a feeling of "we can beat anyone in this cup" making the boys respect City a little less, whereas a win against Fulham is more of a "nice... but now City....."

Utd win please. They have a congested fixture list like us. They travel to Spain before playing the semi final
