After Saturday’s 3-2 Wembley defeat to Liverpool, Man City will be more determined than ever to pip Jurgen Klopp’s side to the Premier League title and win the trophy for a sixth time. Pep Guardiola’s men know they can’t afford any slip ups and three points against the Seagulls is a must.
City have been free scoring at home this term, scoring 42 goals in their 15 home league matches (a league high) whilst also keeping nine clean sheets at the other end. The Cityzens have won eight of their last 10 league matches at the Etihad, with their only slip up coming against Tottenham in a 3-2 defeat in February.
Brighton will have renewed confidence after back-to-back wins in North London thanks to an injury time winner from Leandro Trossard against Tottenham on Saturday. The Seagulls were without a win in seven games before beating both Spurs and Arsenal in the space of a week.
Graham Potter’s men will need all that confidence having never won an away league game against City in their history, losing nine and drawing two of their 11 ties against them.
