Manchester City Starting XI Prediction vs Brighton & Hove Albion


Manchester City will meet Brighton & Hove Albion for the 23rd time tomorrow, with City winning 13 of the previous clashes. Brighton have five wins to go along with four draws. It’s been 11 years since the Seagulls last beat City, and it came in the League Cup, via a penalty shootout.

Since that setback, City have won all five meetings, including a triumph in the EFL Cup semis last season. The four Premier League meetings since then have seen Brighton score just twice. That said, let’s take a look at who Pep Guardiola could start tomorrow, as he aims to continue the stretch of recent domination.

All of the experts and pundits, projectionists and prognosticators, see this match as being very one-sided; to say the least.
