The major doubt for this game is Kevin De Bruyne who didn’t play against the Magpies. It is likely that the midfielder will be rested to get him ready for the Champions League final. One player who stole the headlines on Friday was Ferran Torres who achieved a hat trick.

Guardiola will have to decide if he wants to start the Spaniard or bring in someone else.

It promises to be an intriguing game against Graham Potter’s team. The Englishman likes to play a fluid style that is in some ways similar to what City do. But the difference in quality among the players will prove to be the decisive factor and this is where the team from Manchester are miles ahead of their opposition.

City should look to be patient, and wait for the opportunities to open up. The hosts like to attack, which will make them come forward on a regular basis.

Given the pace in their playing eleven, the visitors could use that and hit Brighton on the counter.

The Citizens have a chance to finish the season on a strong note by winning their remaining games. As for the hosts, they are safe from relegation, which might allow them to play with a lot more freedom.

Manchester City and their attack should look at this match as a chance to express their skills and score as many goals as possible. Brighton should find it extremely difficult to keep City quiet and get a clean sheet.

All signs point to three points for the Premier League champions.
