Preview

Brighton & Hove Albion will look to bounce back from their midweek defeat to Liverpool and move 11 points clear of the relegation zone.

Second-placed Manchester City are aiming end a run of three consecutive away defeats.

Team News

Graham Potter reported no fresh injury concerns following the 3-1 loss to Liverpool.

Jose Izquierdo (knee) remains a long-term absentee for the Seagulls.

Sergio Aguero (knee) is unavailable and Benjamin Mendy is a doubt for Man City having missed the last two matches with muscular issues.

Prediction

Brighton have lost all five of their Premier League meetings with Man City, conceding 15 goals and scoring just twice. I see a sharp City side to come out and take care of business.

Manchester City 4-1 Brighton
