A great victory Friday for City as the victory at Newcastle was the 12th away league win in a row, eclipsing the previous record of 11 held by Chelsea (2008) and City (2017).

Brighton’s 1-1 draw against West Ham United on Saturday evening represented their 14th stalemate this season.

Graham Potter’s side are also unbeaten at home in over two months, with Leicester City dealing their last defeat at the Amex at the beginning of March.

Both managers will look to bring out a positive result in this one.
