Manchester City vs Brighton Preview, Latest H2H Record and Betting Tips: Premier League 21/22, Gameweek 9
Pep Guardiola’s Citizens take on fourth-placed Seagulls in a peculiar domestic encounter at the Amex this weekend. And Alley Sport brings you the Manchester City vs Brighton Preview, H2H Record and Betting Tips from this gameweek 9 showdown between two teams in the top of the league table going into this weekend.
Manchester City vs Brighton Preview
Manchester City are thinking of themselves as title contenders, and why shouldn’t they? The defending Premier League champions have one of the best teams in Europe and are rightly in the conversation for a treble this season. In Brighton, they place a high-flying team that have never tasted such heights before since they were promoted from the Championship.
Graham Potter’s men have begun this season in shockingly good form. Placed fourth with 15 points from 8 games, it shows how good a job Potter is doing and why he has been linked with replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the recent past. The Seagulls are yet to be challenged by a big 6 team and this game would really be the litmus test of their team.
On the other hand, if things go their way, City can overtake Liverpool and Chelsea to top the league table granted they beat Brighton. Only time will tell how long their opponents’ run lasts, but a positive result against City for Brighton can really make their fans believe that something special may happen this season. That, however, seems highly unlikely as of now.

Manchester City vs Brighton H2H Record
This is a very new fixture in English calendar. The two teams have faced each other just 25 times in their history, and as expected, Man City lead the way with 15 wins as compared to the Seagulls’ 5. The other 5 have ended in draws.
Majority of their fixtures came in the early 1980s and in the late 2010s, and City are on a massive run against them, with 8 wins in their last 9 encounters against them. Brighton, however, did pull off a shock 3-2 win against City at the Amex last season in the Premier League.

Manchester City vs Brighton Betting Tips
Betting sites around the country, including OddsChecker, a website that compiles Odds data from the top betting sites in England, place Manchester City as the overwhelming favourites against the hosts at 23/50, while a Brighton win is at 15/2. A draw is placed at 4/1, which is a decent rate for this result.
Gabriel Jesus is expectedly placed as the most likely first goal-scorer by the same website at 26/5, followed by Man City teammate, Raheem Sterling. 1-0 at full-time in favour of Manchester City is the most likely scoreline as per the Odds at 6/1, followed by 2-0 for Pep Guardiola’s at the same odds. The safest money here would, in our opinion, be on a Manchester City win with them winning both halves and keeping a clean sheet.
