Brighton vs Manchester City Preview:

The Premier League crowned champions travel to the American Express Stadium to face a Europe-bound Brighton side on Wednesday night. There was a party atmosphere at the AMEX last weekend after the Seagulls secured European football for the first time in their history following their 3-1 victory over the Saints. Brighton currently sit sixth in the table, three points ahead of Aston Villa, with a game in hand as well. They look favorites to finish sixth due to their superior goal difference over Emery’s Aston Villa side. Despite having a top-seven finish confirmed, the Seagulls mathematically still have a chance of finishing fifth, after Liverpool dropped points last weekend at Anfield. De Zerbi’s side have scored 11 goals in their last 4 home matches and have faced only one defeat in their last 9 home games – the surprise 1-5 defeat at the hands of the Toffees. However, they don’t have a great record against Manchester City in particular – losing 10 of their 11 meetings against the Cityzens since the Seagulls were promoted to the Premier League in 2017. Their only victory came in the 2020-21 season, securing a 3-2 comeback win with goals from Trossard, Webster and Burn.

Manchester City meanwhile moved a step closer to the infamous treble after they were crowned champions last week following Arsenal’s shock defeat to Nottingham Forest. Pep Guardiola fielded a much-rotated squad against Chelsea at the Etihad, however, this didn’t stop the champions from winning the match. Julian Alvarez scored a well-taken goal and was disallowed a goal as well – as City emerged 1-0 winners. Pep Guardiola’s side are on a 24-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, having won each of their last 12 Premier League games in the process. They have also taken 36 points from 17 away trips this season, having scored 33 goals. Despite chasing the FA Cup and the Champions League whilst already having the Premier League trophy in their pocket, Pep won’t let his opponents off easy in the league, wanting momentum ahead of the two cup finals. Manchester City have scored 33 goals in 11 meetings against the Seagulls, including a 3-1 victory in the reverse fixture at the Etihad in October.
