The pressure will be off Man City when they travel to Brighton on Wednesday, as their third straight Premier League title has already been secured. Interestingly, Brighton landed a 3-2 win in their final home game of the 2020-21 season against Man City. However, Pep Guardiola’s side still boasts an impressive record against the Seagulls, landing victories in ten of the previous eleven.
Guardiola is likely to make changes for this fixture, having made nine for the visit of Chelsea on Sunday. However, they have an excellent scoring record in this fixture, as they have found the back of the net in every Premier League match against Brighton. Over that period, they have scored 33 times to average at least three goals per game against the Seagulls.
Brighton are already on course for their best ever finish in the Premier League, but they require one more point to secure a spot in next season’s Europa League. The Seagulls have a poor overall record against City, but they have won their final home match of the campaign in each of the previous two seasons.
Brighton’s record against the team starting the day at the top of the standings is extremely poor, as they have registered just a single win from seven. That win was a 3-2 success over City in 2021. On that occasion, they came back from 2-0 down to register a dramatic 3-2 success.
Brighton vs Man City Prediction
Guardiola will likely rest many of his top stars for the visit to Brighton on Wednesday evening, which could present excellent value in siding with the hosts this week. Therefore, a chance will be taken on the hosts to register a victory at the AMEX.
