Reason For Manchester City vs Brighton Predictions

  • Man City have scored a combined 13 goals in their last three meetings with Brighton.
  • Brighton have won only two out of 17 Premier League fixures this season.
  • Man City are unbeaten in 13 games in all competitions.
  • The Citizens hammered Brighton 5-0 when the teams last face off in July.

City firmly in the groove

Pep Guardiola’s slick Citizens have rediscovered their swagger of late, and powered by a 13-match unbeaten surge, Manchester City will expect to blow Brighton away at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.

City have started to look like more their formidable selves in recent weeks, and their performances in wins at Arsenal, Chelsea and neighbours Manchester United in particular, sent an ominous message to their rivals for domestic silverware.

The confident Citizens are starting to play like potential title winners, and having rattled four or more goals past Albion in each of the club’s last three Premier League encounters, City look capable of clipping the Seagulls’ wings again.

Brighton’s season of struggle

With a meagre two wins from 17 league assignments, the Seagulls have looked like prime relegation candidates this season, and though their approach play remains attractive, Albion continue to be hamstrung by a lack of quality in both boxes.

The only clean sheet Brighton claimed in their last nine assignments came at fellow strugglers Fulham, while Graham Potter’s side have scored one or fewer goals in 11 of their last 13 top-flight tussles at the other end.

City to power past Brighton

Driven on by their lengthy unbeaten run and a sequence of six straight victories, Man City look ready to launch an assault on four fronts in 20201, and the Citizens can put themselves firmly back into Premier League title contention with a win over Brighton this week.

As we touched on earlier, City smashed a combined 13 goals past Brighton in the teams’ last three one-sided meetings, conceding just once at the opposite end along the way, and the Citizens’ recent scintillating displays suggest they can put the foot down against the Seagulls again on Wednesday.

Even with Sergio Aguero still sidelined, City have been scoring for fun of late, and having hit three or more goals in three of their last five matches, Pep Guardiola’s free-scoring charges look capable of cutting loose again when Albion visit the Etihad Stadium.

With City in devastating form and their dominant record in this fixture also a factor, backing the hosts at -2.0 in the handicap market looks an excellent option at the prices quoted, while our 4-0 correct score prediction tips the Citizens to run riot at Brighton’s expense again.

England winger Raheem Sterling is also worth backing to get in on the act in Manchester this week. The City star notched a superb hattrick when the Citizens battered Brighton 5-0 in July, and that superb haul should arm him with plenty of self-belief ahead of Wednesday’s rematch.

Manchester City injuries and team news

Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus returned to action against Birmingham following a spell out with COVID-19, while Ferran Torres is also available again having returned a negative test.

Sergio Aguero needs to self-isolate however after coming into close contact case, while Eric Garcia, Scott Carson and Cole Palmer are all ruled out for similar reasons.

Raheem Sterling, Nathan Ake and Aymeric Laporte will all be assessed closer to kick-off, though Ederson should be able to return to City’s XI.

Brighton injuries and team news

Yves Bissouma is suspended for Brighton, while Aaron Connolly, Jose Izquierdo, Florin Andon and Tariq Lamptey are all sidelined through injury.

There are also fitness concerns over trio Adam Lallana, Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate, though Graham Potter will hope to able to call on some or all of them on Wednesday.
