Man City’s unbeaten run finally came to end last week as they lost to Liverpool in an epic encounter at Anfield. Following that defeat, they will go into this weekend’s game 4 points behind league leaders Arsenal.
After making a flying start, things have been more difficult for Brighton recently, particularly since the exit of manager Graham Potter. They suffered defeats to Tottenham and Brentford before having to settle for a 0-0 draw with Nottm Forest during the week. The Seagulls made plenty of chances, but couldn’t convert them. New boss Roberto De Zerbi has yet to win a match since taking over.
Pep Guardiola will still be without Kyle Walker and Kalvin Phillips. The game is likely to come too early for John Stones too. Levi Colwill and Jan Paul van Hecke should be back available for Brighton following minor injuries.
Man City will be keen to bounce back after last weekend’s loss. They have had a week off as their match against Arsenal was postponed to allow the Gunners to fulfil a European fixture. They won both times these sides met in the Premier League last season, scoring 7 goals and only conceding 1. Indeed, Brighton have not won at the Etihad Stadium since their return to the top flight in 2017.
Here’s how they line up:
Man City: Ederson, Dias, Cancelo, Haaland, Grealish, Laporte, Rodri, De Bruyne, Silva, Akanji, Mahrez.
Brighton: Sánchez, Webster, Dunk, March, Mac Allister, Trossard, Groß, Lallana, Welbeck, Caicedo, Veltman.
Can they put that record right, or will it be another victory for the Sky Blues? Find out by watching the Man City vs Brighton live stream. Plus, make sure you don’t miss any of the EPL action this weekend by checking out our full how to watch Premier League live streams hub.
