Premier League: Brighton vs Manchester City preview, team news, prediction and tips
October 22


Brighton will welcome Manchester City to Falmer Stadium in the Premier League matchday 9 on Saturday. The kick-off is at 18:30 CEST.


Well, Brighton certainly surprised many by winning four of their opening five matchdays in the 2021/22 PL season but Graham Potter's men have slowed down drastically in recent weeks. As a result, the Seagulls will play hosts to Man City on the back of three consecutive draws in the English top flight with the latest one taking place at rock-bottom Brighton (0-0) last weekend. That unwanted run have also seen Brighton moving into fourth in the standings with 15 points taken from eight matches.

Pep Guardiola's side, meanwhile, remain unbeaten in seven Premier League fixtures since their opening day 1-0 loss at the hands of Tottenham and will travel to the South Coast of England following their back-to-back victories over Burnley (2-0) in the PL and Club Brugge (5-1) in the Champions League group-stage clash on Tuesday. Aside from losing to Spurs, the Cityzens have also drawn Southampton and Liverpool this term so far and now sit in third in the table, two points ahead of their forthcoming opponents.

Team news

Steven Alzate and Danny Welbeck are both unavailble for the hosts through injury while City will be without Ferran Torres on the weekend as the Spaniard remains on the sidelines.


Given that Brighton have failed to win in any of their last three league matches while also failing to score in the latest two encounter with Arsenal and Norwich, it would be a huge surprise to see Potter's side causing major troubles to the reigning Premier League champions on Saturday. On the other hand, the Seagulls managed a 3-2 win against Guardiola's side in their previous head-to-head meeting in May, so let's stick with BTTS in this one.
