Premier League 2023-24 – Sunday 18th February Matches Tips, TV and Betting Preview

The Premier League weekend continues on Sunday afternoon with another double header of action on a day where the bottom of the table will be under the microscope with two of the bottom four in the standings on show.

Both matches are live on TV in the UK so with the weather set to be pretty foul for much of the country there is no reason not to sit back on the couch and enjoy what should be a decent afternoon of football.

Sheffield United vs Brighton & Hove Albion (14.00 – Sky Main Event & Sky Premier League)

The opening match of the afternoon sees Brighton and Hove Albion heading to Bramall Lane to take on Sheffield United for the second time in as many months after the two met in an FA Cup tie a few weeks ago which Brighton won 5-2.

Sheffield United gave themselves a glimmer of hope of beating the drop last week when they went to Luton and won but they are not going to get anywhere parking the bus in this league because so many teams, and Brighton are probably one of the most comfortable, know how to unlock deep banks whereas Luton aren’t as accustomed to doing that. If Sheffield United play so deep again here you would imagine it will only be a matter of time before a well-rested Brighton side get through them and start filling their boots. You can get at this Brighton side if you are brave enough to press them high. Luton showed that a couple of weeks ago and to be fair to Sheffield United they do have pace and skill up top to do some damage in this game, as they showed in that cup game last month. The last four matches at Bramall Lane have had at least four goals in them and I don’t think that is a surprise. Sheffield United need to win matches to stay up and prior to last week they hadn’t won on their travels so the majority of points need to be picked up at home. I expect the high scoring trend to continue here, especially with Brighton perfect dance partners for a high scoring game and I think over 3 goals lands quite comfortably here.

Luton Town vs Manchester United (16.30 – Sky Main Event & Sky Premier League)

The second match of the day comes from what will be a packed out and raucous Kenilworth Road as Luton Town welcome the biggest club in the world to Bedfordshire in the form of a Manchester United side who have won their last four matches.

United will have their sights set on the top four over the final third of the season but they have already seen rivals for that spot Aston Villa win this weekend and will be looking to reply in kind at Kenilworth Road. Prior to last week, Luton were looking good for Premier League survival but they hindered their chances when they slipped up against the bottom team in the league but they have given every big team a good game on their own patch and you sense this will be a game which is much more suited to them because Manchester United can’t possibly go to Luton and park a bank of five and a bank of four on the edge of their own box and ask the Hatters to break it down like Sheffield United did last week. Man Utd have won their last four matches but it wouldn’t take long to pick holes in those wins should you want to so I wouldn’t want to be on them at odds on. Luton generally bounce back from a poor result with a positive showing but the home side are being respected in the prices. Where I do like this game though is the corners. Manchester United have had the fifth highest amount of corners in the Premier League and that includes eight at Villa Park last weekend. Luton are no strangers to corners either and win plenty more at home than away so the 10.5 corners looks like a very low line to me here. There were 14 corners in the reverse meeting and Luton are much more established in the league now. Luton picked up 13 on their own here last week and have had more corners than Manchester City and Chelsea on this ground in recent times. I expect the corner count to fly into double figures.
