After Liverpool knocked them off the top of the Premier League with their big win over Manchester United, Manchester City responded in fine form against a tricky opponent in Brighton.

A goalless first-half would have given City fans cause for concern, but in the end Pep Guardiola’s men put their foot down after the break, scoring twice in the first 20 minutes of the second period before settling the game late on.



Riyad Mahrez opened the scoring with a neat finish, Phil Foden buried a second just after the hour and it was Bernardo Silva who notched the third goal to settle things, allowing City to coast to their 24th win of the season and head back to the top one point ahead of Liverpool.

The win was Pep Guardiola’s 250th across all competitions since taking charge of Manchester City. The Sky Blues have won 72.67% of their games under Guardiola over a seven year period, with Pep reaching the milestone in just 344 matches.
