It has been a disappointing run of results for Man City, as they come into their Premier League showdown against Brighton after suffering three domestic defeats on the bounce. City will be looking to respond this weekend after being edged out by Arsenal before the international break.
That defeat against the Gunners saw City drop to third in the standings, but they could move back to the summit if they are able to return to winning ways this weekend. The loss was also the first time since December 2018 that City had lost back-to-back matches in the Premier League. A response is likely this weekend.
Brighton will also be chasing a response this weekend, as they look to end a three-game winless run across all competitions. The Seagulls have gone two without a win in the Premier League, but they responded following a heavy loss against Aston Villa before the international break by landing a 2-2 draw against Liverpool.
Lewis Dunk eventually scored the equalizing goal in that tie, but Brighton could have easily won the match in the closing stages of the contest. It looks to be a positive sign that the Seagulls have scored in each of their last 24 matches in the Premier League, which is the longest active streak in the competition, and Brighton’s longest sequence since March 1965.
Man City vs Brighton Prediction
Brighton’s ability to score goals is a key trend to consider this weekend, but we see them struggling against a City side that are desperate to get back to winning ways. Therefore, we see City landing victory with both teams finding the back of the net.
