Manchester City will be looking to bounce back from Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final disappointment when they resume their Premier League campaign at home to Brighton & Hove Albion. The Citizens lost 3-2 to Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-finals at the weekend, but they recently booked their spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League and remain top of the Premier League table, one point clear of second-placed Liverpool on the same number of matches (31). Pep Guardiola’s side have back-to-back home league fixtures against Brighton and Watford before welcoming Real Madrid for the first leg of their European Cup semi-final on April 26.
However, this could also be a chance for them to sneak a positive result in Manchester. Brighton has virtually nothing to play for, as they are firmly in 10th place. Relegation-struck Burnley is 26 points behind them, while any European football is 14 points ahead of them. With about six games left in the season, Brighton can come into games completely relaxed, not really caring about whether it will be a huge defeat or a surprise win. That feeling of security in the Premier League is one of the reasons why they were able to snag two great wins in a row. Brighton first went to the Emirates and won 2-1, then stole all three points at Tottenham Stadium through a 90th-minute Trossard winner.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up Man City’s latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Brighton, who have won at Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in their last two league games. Manchester City are set to host Brighton in a Premier League match that can have huge implications for one of the teams involved. With that said, it’s a good time to check out our Premier League odds series, which includes our Man City-Brighton prediction and pick we have laid out below. After not using their opportunity to get even more ahead of Liverpool last weekend, Manchester City looks on towards facing Brighton. They come into this game after a grueling four-game streak, where they played Liverpool and Atletico Madrid twice.
City got through to the semifinal of the Champions League, but will not play in the final of the FA Cup. Brighton, on the other hand, got a huge confidence boost, beating Champions League hopefuls Tottenham, just a week after also beating Arsenal at the Emirates. However, City will be a much bigger foe than the North London Rivals. There is a really simple reason why Manchester City need to win this game – if they slip up once, they lose the title. City has been first on the table since the 15th matchday, but their once-big lead is now down to just a single point. Their poor results, such as a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace and a 3-2 loss at home to Spurs, really cost them in the title fight.
Now, despite having to play Real Madrid in just a few weeks, they also need to be concentrated on the Premier League. However, they should have the quality and the depth to fight on two fronts. Manchester City also should win this game because they are clearly the better team. While Brighton has been in the middle of the table, which is respectable for a relatively newly promoted side, Manchester City should have the quality, even with slight rotations, to get one over them at the Etihad. Manager Pep Guardiola is looking to secure his fourth English title in five years, which is a seriously impressive feat, so Brighton should not be in their way.
Manchester City has all the quality they could possibly amass, other than a proper striker, so games like this should not be a problem. It is entirely true that the Citizens dropped some points against lower opposition this season, but this should not be a huge hurdle, especially considering the fact that Brighton is not really fighting for anything right now. This should be nothing more than a formality.They will surely enter this game completely relaxed and might even sneak a late winner, just like against Spurs.
