Brighton vs Man City Predictions


Weakened Man City were exposed defensively against Newcastle, but still got the job done. Brighton don't have the same pace as the Magpies and this should be more of a routine win for a City side which should be strengthened.

Back Pep Guardiola's team to cover a one-goal handicap and to win to nil at the Amex Stadium.

  • Brighton are winless in 6 of their last 7 matches (Premier League).
  • Brighton have failed to score in 5 of their last 6 matches against Man City (all competitions).
  • Man City have won the last 8 matches against Brighton (all competitions).
  • Man City have won by 2+ goals in their last 3 away matches against Brighton (Premier League).
  • Man City have won 20 of their last 21 away matches (all competitions).
  • Man City have won to nil in 6 of their last 10 away matches (Premier League).
  • Man City have covered a -1 handicap in 8 of their last 11 away matches (Premier League).

Head to Head


Manchester City hold a 16-5 head to head record against Brighton with four draws between the sides.

Man City have won the last seven in a row, including a 1-0 win earlier this season when Phil Foden's goal proved the difference.

Brighton Form


Brighton have now won one of their last seven matches after a 1-1 weekend draw with West Ham.

Danny Welbeck thought he had won it for the Seagulls in the 84th minute, but Said Benrahma earned West Ham a point three minutes later.

Brighton's only win since March came against Leeds three games ago.

They have lost to Man United, Sheffield United and Wolves during this run and drawn with Everton, Chelsea and West Ham.

Brighton Team News


Defender Lewis Dunk and forward Neal Maupay are out serving the second games of their suspensions.

Full backs Tariq Lamptey, Solly March and forward Florin Andone all remain on the sidelines.

Midfielder Adam Lallana is expected to be available, while it remains touch and go for defender Joel Veltman's availability.

Man City Form


Man City celebrated becoming Premier League champions again with a seven-goal thriller against Newcastle on Friday.

In a topsy-turvy game at St James's Park, City twice trailed, but a Ferran Torres hat-trick earned the champions another win.

City had let a 1-0 lead slip in their previous game when losing 2-1 to Chelsea as the title celebrations were temporarily put on hold.

That loss ended a five-game winning run in all competitions, including UEFA Champions League semi-final success over PSG. 

Man City Team News


Ederson will come back into the City goal in place of Scott Carson.

Kevin De Bruyne may not be risked once again after sitting out the Newcastle game, while Sergio Aguero is definitely out.

Pep Guardiola is likely to make more changes, particularly defensively after a lacklustre performance on Tyneside.
