Manchester City can close the gap on table-toppers Arsenal with a win over Brighton at the Etihad on Saturday afternoon. And a win is exactly what the layers expect from a Pep Guardiola side smarting from their defeat at Anfield last weekend.
City are 2/9 with Betfred to pick up all three points, while the Seagulls are 14/1 to cause the shock. It’s 6/1 about a draw.
The Premier League champions were building up a major head of steam, prior to last week but they stumbled, unexpectedly so in Copenhagen and then at Anfield, where City’s record is not great. It’s unlikley that there will be any lasting hangover from that but it does mean that City have fallen four points behind Arsenal, who just keep on winning.
However, City should be able to bounce back with three points against a telented but often frustrating Brighton side that have now failed to score in three successive games since their 3-3 draw at Liverpool. In those games they have racked up 53 efforts on goal and their seemingly never ending plight of being able to convert chances on a regular basis goes on.

H2H Stats and Previous Results
When making a prediction for Manchester City – Brighton, it is worth paying attention to past meetings. The teams met once this year. The confrontation took place in April in Manchester and ended with the triumph of the home team with a score of 3:0. It is worth noting that four of the last five matches ended with a total over 2.5.When forming a prediction for Manchester City, it is worth noting that the team is in 2nd place in the standings, with 23 points in the asset. So far, Guardiola’s protégé has failed to seize the lead, which is why Arsenal are already four points behind. In the last round, the “citizens” were left without points at all, losing with a minimum score of 0:1 to Liverpool. Moreover, despite the full power of the attacking line, the team has not scored for two matches in a row. Before that, Man City drew 0-0 with Copenhagen in the 4th round of the Champions League. Recall that Erling Holland has already scored 15 goals and three assists in the Premier League.
When making a prediction for Brighton, the results of the last rounds should be taken into account. It seemed that with Potter’s departure, the team did not lose a bit in the game, but this opinion was erroneous. Yes, De Derby’s wards managed to work on equal terms with Liverpool (3:3), but then three rather weak performances followed – 0:1 with Tottenham, 0:2 with Brentford and 0:0 with Nottingham Forest. Moreover, it cannot be said that the attacks have ceased to be carried out, on the contrary, there is an upswing, but there is a mess in the implementation and problems in accuracy. For example, over the past two rounds, the Seagulls have struck as many as 40 shots on goal.

This weekend Guardiola’s men play host to a Brighton side still searching for their first win under new management after only picking up a point at home to struggling Nottingham Forest in midweek.We’re backing Man City to come away with all 3pts and a clean sheet when they face Brighton at the Etihad this weekend. City have won five of their last six meetings with the Seagulls, keeping clean sheets in four of those victories. Guardiola’s men have kept clean sheets in four of their last six matches in all competitions, while Brighton have failed to score in each of their last three league games.Haaland might not have scored against Liverpool last time out but the City striker looked dangerous in that game. We’re backing Haaland to score first against Brighton on Saturday and wouldn’t be surprised if he went on to bag two or three goals to add to his current tally of 15 in the Premier League alone.Man City made the trip to Anfield last weekend as the favourites to win but ended up going down to a second-half Mo Salah goal in the 76th-minute. Man City looked to have taken the lead early in the second half but the goal was disallowed for a foul by Haaland in the build-up, much to the dismay of Guardiola. That defeat has put a dent in Man City’s title pursuit as Arsenal continues to win games and now lead by 4pts.
Man City Predicted lineup – Ederson, Cancelo, Aké, Dias, Akanji, Gündoğan, De Bruyne, Silva, Rodri, Foden & Haaland
Brighton would have been expecting to secure their first win under their new manager when the Seagulls played host to Nottingham Forest in midweek. However, despite dominating the game for the most part, Brighton failed to take any of their chances and the game ended up finishing goalless. Brighton will view that game as 2pts dropped but only have themselves to blame for a lack of composure in the final third.
