Man City v Brighton Match Preview

Live coverage on BT Sport 1 at 6pm, Wednesday 13th January 2021

 

  • Pep Guardiola’s men have won their last seven against the Seagulls
  • City have won six on the bounce across competitions
  • Brighton haven’t won in eight league outings
  • The Seagulls have won just one of their last sixteen games

 

Over the winter months, Manchester City have hit an excellent run of consistency across all competitions, especially at the back where they have displayed some excellent defensive solidity. The Citizens have leaked just thirteen goals in fifteen Premier League matches and have enjoyed clean sheets in cup competitions, their latest outing returning a 3-0 win over Championship side Birmingham City in the third round of the FA Cup.

It should in theory be another routine win for Pep Guardiola’s men when they lock horns with Brighton & Hove Albion at the Etihad Stadium tonight, the Seagulls having failed to win (in 90 minutes) against League Two side Newport County in the FA Cup last time out. Graham Potter fielded one of his strongest sides in South Wales and failed to dominate on a heavy pitch, therefore we don’t envisage his side causing their hosts too many issues in this midweek outing.

Manchester City are unsurprisingly pretty short in the betting for this clash, however odds-against for the match to contain fewer than 4 goals in a City win smacks of value, especially since eleven of City’s last fifteen matches in the league have contained under 3.5 goals.
