Manchester City look to get back to winning ways after Liverpool ended their unbeaten streak this season in the previous game. They are up against Roberto de Zerbi’s Brighton who are still looking for their first win under new manager.
Pep Guardiola’s City are currently four points behind league leaders Arsenal. They have picked up 23 points from a possible 30 and last weekend’s loss against Liverpool was their first loss in 22 league games.
Brighton have looked competitive under new manager, De Zerbi, but have struggled to pick up a win due to their lack luster finishing. Brighton’s track record way to City isn’t great either, the Seagulls have lost 10 of their 12 visits here, conceding 21 goals and scoring just 2.
