Manchester City vs Brighton and Hove Albion Preview

Man City have not lost a game of competitive football since losing 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur on 21 November last year. This form has seen them soar up the table with the potential to go as high as 2nd, given results elsewhere go in their favour. Guardiola led his City side over a solid 2-0 win in the Manchester derby against rivals United at Old Trafford. City dominated the game and were the better team throughout the duration of the match. Center-back John Stones converted from close range, off a Kevin de Bruyne free-kick into the area, giving City a precious lead. In the second half, Ruben Dias and John Stones put up a brilliant defensive performance, denying United even the hope for a comeback.

Captain Fernandinho later scored a screamer from outside the box, killing the game and taking City to their 4th straight EFL Cup final. Before this match, goalscorers John Stones and Fernandinho had not scored a goal for City in 3 years and 2 years respectively. Guardiola will hope for a similar performance from his men against a downtrodden Brighton team who haven’t picked up 3 points from the league since 21 November last year.
