Match Preview of Man City vs Brighton

Manchester City will be looking to return to winning ways when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to the Etihad Stadium for their Premier League contest on Saturday.

The Citizens suffered their first defeat of the season at the hands of Liverpool last weekend, while the Seagulls were held to a goalless draw at home against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

For the first time since the opening day of last season, Manchester City suffered defeat away from home in the Premier League when they lost to rivals Liverpool in a fiery battle at Anfield last weekend, courtesy of a second-half strike from Mohamed Salah.

Not even the exceptional goalscoring exploits of Erling Braut Haaland could break down Liverpool's resilient backline, and the Citizens have now failed to score in their last two matches, including the goalless Champions League draw with Copenhagen.

Nevertheless, Pep Guardiola's side – who were named Club of the Year at the 2022 Ballon d'Or ceremony on Monday – will be keen to bounce back quickly as they have slipped four points behind league leaders Arsenal.

Our Predicted Lineups

Man City possible starting lineup:Ederson, Cancelo, Akanji, Laporte, Ake; De Bruyne, Rodri, Bernardo; Foden, Haaland, Grealish

Brighton possible starting lineup: starting lineup:Sanchez; Veltman, Dunk, Webster; March, Caicedo, Mac Allister, Trossard; Lallana, Gross; Welbeck

Who will win the match?

We say: Man City 1-0 Brighton. Guardiola will be looking for a response from his Man City players following last weekend's defeat, and the Citizens will be regarded as strong favourites to claim maximum points on Saturday, although Brighton's threat cannot be underestimated.
