Brighton & Hove Albion have enjoyed a terrific season thus far after struggling towards the bottom of the table last season. In that campaign, many pundits suggested that the Seagulls would be flying higher in the table if they could finish their chances due to their impressive xG stats and indeed that seems to coming to pass this season as they sit in fourth place in the table with eight games on the board.

The Seagulls have lost just once so far this season in the Premier League but they do come into this clash on the back of a trio of draws against Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Norwich, with last week’s goalless result at Carrow Road particularly disappointing given that it was only the Canaries’ second point of the campaign.

Manchester City were at their scintillating best in the Champions League in midweek, racking up five goals in an away win over Club Brugge to cancel out their defeat at PSG last time out. In the Premier League, the Citizens appear to have a more difficult challenge on their hands in the race for the title this time around with the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea looking harder to beat this time around.

Pep Guardiola’s men haven’t lost since their opening weekend defeat at Tottenham Hotspur in the league, but they have been held to draws by both Southampton and Liverpool. A win over Burnley last time out keeps them in the hunt at the top of the table, but they’ll need three points here to keep the pressure on the top two.

Brighton vs Man City: Match Stats

Only one of Manchester City’s last five Premier League games has seen more than two goals scored and we anticipate another low-scoring affair here as they take on a Brighton side that famously don’t find the net enough. The Seagulls’ last two matches have ended goalless in the Premier League and although we expect City to force through a narrow win, we don’t expect many goals to be scored.

Although Manchester City have won the second-highest amount of corners in the Premier League this season, their recent fixtures haven’t seen too many corners awarded.  None of the Citizens’ last three fixtures in all competitions have seen nine or more corners so we’re expecting the same again as they head to the Amex Stadium on Saturday night.
