Brighton vs Manchester City Prediction and Betting Preview, 11 Jul 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-5
Oh well, the Premier League title slipped off the claws of former champions Manchester City in unbelievable fashion. Liverpool set out this season to reinvent themselves as a force to reckon with in English football.
Match status: 2019-20 Premier League - Matchweek 35
Venue: Amex Stadium (Brighton)
Undoubtedly, the Reds brought their ambitions into fruition. Their point tally of 92 points from 34 games has left City’s rather impressive numbers looking inconsequential. The Citizens are easily the highest scoring side in the league with a staggering 86 goals to their name.

Also, Manchester City are miles away from third-placed Chelsea, sporting a healthy nine points lead over the Blues to remain in command of the spot behind league champions Liverpool. Barring some high-profile bottling from City, they should retain second-place at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Brighton sit fifteenth on the standings and have been striving really well in the league. Eight points clear of the drop-zone, four points should be enough to guarantee top-flight survival for the Seagulls.

Brighton will fancy their chances of getting those wins in subsequent games, as they stand no chance here, given the superiority of this weekend’s opposition. They will probably set out to prevent taking too many hits from this rampant city side on Saturday evening.

Brighton vs Manchester City Team News

Graham Potter has inspired his side to an impressive Premier League campaign – one where they are pretty distant from any relegation-related talks. With their fixture schedule still presenting games against Southampton and Newcastle, the Albion are sure to grab some points over the coming weeks.

However, a win against Manchester City here could be too much of an asking for this Brighton side. On their part, they are likely to approach this game in a lackadaisical manner with little or nothing left to play for this season. They will head out watching the game play out in its own way.

Last time out against Liverpool, they were always considered outsiders for the win. Never getting into their strides, the Seagulls were pegged in their own half by their title-winning opposition. Ultimately, they were knocked off their perch with a 3-1 loss posted on the board.

Mathematically, the Citizens have already booked a place in next season’s edition of the Champions League. However, as things stand, they are ineligible to appear in Europe having been banned from appearing in Europe for the next two years by UEFA.

Making preparations for an appeal at the end of the season, in the event that their efforts to lift the ban hits a stumbling block, they will be excluded from the Champions League next season. But these affairs are beyond the players, as their job remains turning out impressive performances on the pitch.

It was another day at the office for Guardiola’s men when they took on mid-table outfit Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium last time out. Firing five goals past the Magpies, Manchester City took their relatively weaker opposition to the cleaners emphatically.

This weekend, City are clear favorites for the win. When it comes to h2h encounters between these sides, the Citizens hold a 100% winning record against this foe over the past two decades, barring a single EFL Cup draw in 2008.

Injured or Suspended Players

Brighton: No injuries or suspensions.

Manchester City: Sergio Aguero, Zack Steffen and Philippe Sandler.
