Here are our Premier League predictions for Man City's trip to the south coast to face Brighton. Pep Guardiola's side made it through to the final of the FA Cup at the weekend but in the process, they slipped behind Arsenal and Liverpool in the title race after both teams picked up wins. Manchester City can't afford to drop points on Thursday night but face a tricky trip to Brighton who have had 12 days to prepare for this game having not been in action since the 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Key Stats

  • Five of the last six encounters between Brighton and Man City have ended with both teams scoring, while five of the visitors' last six outings in all competitions also produced goals at both ends of the pitch.
  • Man City have won five of their last seven meetings with the Seagulls, scoring at least three goals in three of the duo's last five games in the Premier League. City have only kept one clean sheet in their last six attempts which is why we're going with a final scoreline of 3-1 in favour of the visitors.
  • Phil Foden has scored 14 goals in the Premier League this season and the 23-year-old has found the back of the net four times in his last six appearances across all competitions.
