Manchester City 2, Ilkay Gundogan 2’, Phil Foden 48’
Brighton 3, Leandro Trossard 50’. Adam Webster 72’, Daniel Burn 76’
Welcome to your quick recap.
Manchester City have lost a great match away to Brighton and are 3-2 losers.
A decent performance as City did play at level with a somewhat rotated squad. Man City came out with some energy and suffered misfortune early as a controversial red to Joao Cancelo tainted the match.
One where City dominated possession and chances created. City could have closed it up after Foden’s amazing goal made it 2-0, but chaos on City’s side saw us give up three.
The story of the night was City’s several changes including a Ferran Torres at striker, though that was shortly lived. Eric Garcia would come in and played pretty badly as he made mistake after mistake including missing a great chance near the death of the match.
A poor showing from Eric Garcia and a potentially injured Ilkay Gundogan made it a night to forget in the South Coast.
