Preview

City beat Club Brugge 5-1 in the Champions League on Tuesday to make it 11 goals from three Group A matches.

Brighton were held 0-0 by bottom-of-the-table Norwich City last Saturday – a disappointing result considering their impressive start.

It should be a great match between two proactive and incredible teams. Let’s hope it makes it a spectacle.

Which team will come out in front?

Team News

Pep Guardiola’s side have just Ferran Torres out with injury. Ben Mendy remains suspended.

For Brighton, Adam Webster, Danny Welback and Steven Alzate are out.
