Brighton will host Manchester City at the Amex Stadium in a highly anticipated Premier League clash. Both teams are set to bring their best game forward, as Manchester City aims to maintain their lead in the Premier League title race, while Brighton seeks to improve their recent form and secure a commendable position in the league standings, currently being placed tenth. Amid the end of their Champions League campaign after a dramatic penalty shootout with Real Madrid, the Citizens will do its best to secure the Premier League title. Brighton, on the other hand, still has hopes for reaching top 6, having a 6 points gap from Newcastle United. The first-round match saw Manchester City winning with 2-1 score, but this time both teams look quite different.

Brighton vs Manchester City Preview 


Brighton are currently in a spell of poor form, having won just one of their last five games. The team will be looking to regroup and show their potential against Manchester City. In recent matches, Brighton have shown flashes of promise and will be looking to capitalise on these positive aspects to secure a positive result against the title contenders. Despite the poor recent performances, Roberto De Zerbi is optimistic regarding the upcoming match. 

Manchester City Preview 

Manchester City, with their exceptional track record and impressive line-up, will start as heavy favourites. The team has shown remarkable consistency and resilience in recent outings, maintaining an impressive winning streak in the Premier League, having 3 consecutive wins and the last loss dated to the beginning of December. Manchester City's depth and tactical resilience will continue their dominant run in the league. With both of the team's main rivals in the Premier League, Liverpool and Arsenal, having also completed their European campaigns, there is no room for error for Manchester City. With all of his key players ready for the upcoming match, Pep Guardiola emphasised that despite the challenging schedule, there will be no rotations. Given that the last matches of the Premier League will be against Tottenham and West Ham, it will be important to get points from the unstable opponents like the current Brighton.


Betting Tips for Brighton vs Manchester City

First Half Winner - Manchester City

After the exhausting match against Real Madrid, Manchester City was evidently tired in their clash with Chelsea and if the Blues were to use their chances, the match could have ended with the defeat. Guardiola once again emphasised the team’s fatigue and it is unlikely that the manager wants to repeat the scenario of the previous match, when City scored only in 84th minute. The team will do its best to secure the advantage in the first half so it can lower the speed of the game in the second one. Unibet gives 1.90 for this Brighton vs Manchester City prediction.

Total Under 3.5 Goals

Similar considerations should be taken into account in this case. Manchester city does not score more than once in two consecutive games and it is unlikely that the team will have a lot of chances in the upcoming game. At the same time, with key players like Rodri, Kyle Walker and John Stones ready for the match, the Citizen’s net is also in the safe hands. Brighton vs Manchester City odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 1.66.

Erling Haaland to Score at Any Time 

Surprisingly, Erling Haaland faces its main competition as the best goalscorer in the Premier League from Cole Palmer - both have 20 goals scored. Haaland knows that his goals should be decisive in the team’s effort to secure another league title and surely wants to take the personal trophy for the second season in a row, scoring for two consecutive Premier League matches. For this Brighton vs Manchester City tip, Unibet gives 1.57.
