Brighton vs Manchester City Prediction & Match Preview

18-05-2021 | 19:00 UK
Man City
Premier League Community Stadium Round 37

Tuesday’s football game at Amex Stadium pits together Brighton and Manchester City, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table ahead of Matchday 37. 

The Seagulls sit just above the relegation zone, but their Premier League status is not in danger. 

Since all Maupay (suspension), Dunk (suspension), Lamptey (thigh injury), and March (knee injury) are out of contention for the hosts, we are not tempted to put our money on the underdogs.

Man City, on the other hand, continue their preparations for the Champions League final. 

Pep Guardiola’s troops have already clinched the Premier League trophy, but given their number of absentees in the home team, away win should be considered. 

Kevin De Bruyne is definitely out of contention through injury, while Kun Aguero is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.

Team News:

Brighton will remain without their captain Lewis Dunk and top goalscorer Neal Maupay after the duo were both sent off in the recent defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers, but they will be available again for the final day trip to Arsenal.

Steven Alzate could drop out of the side to make way for Adam Lallana, who returned from a recent knock to make an appearance from the substitutes' bench against West Ham. The former Liverpool midfielder's ability in tight areas could prove useful in terms of evading Man City's high press.

Joel Veltman and Davy Propper could miss out once more due to calf and ankle injuries respectively, while Solly March and Tariq Lamptey have been ruled out for the rest of the season due to knee and hamstring injuries respectively.

Man City, meanwhile, will travel without Kevin De Bruyne due to a minor muscle injury, with the Belgian perhaps unlikely to be risked prior to the Champions League final.

Sergio Aguero was not included in the squad which travelled to Newcastle, although it remains unclear whether that is due to an injury or related to his failed attempt at converting a Panenka penalty during the recent league defeat to Chelsea.

Guardiola may look to ensure the likes of Ederson, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Fernandinho, Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden are not rusty ahead of the final against Chelsea, so there is likely to be plenty of changes as usual.

Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; White, Webster, Burn; Gross, Lallana, Bissouma, Moder; Trossard, Jahanbakhsh; Welbeck

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Mendy; Silva, Fernandinho, Foden; Mahrez, Jesus, Torres
