Brighton vs Manchester City Stats

  • Man City have kept a clean sheet in 6 of their last 7 league matches.
  • There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 6 of Brighton's last 7 league games.
  • Man City are undefeated in their last 7 league matches.

Betting Tip: Under 2.5 Goals

It was a routine win for Manchester City last week against Burnley and they followed that up with an impressive performance in Brugge. They need to keep up the pace with Chelsea and Liverpool in what looks like it will be a fiercely competitive three horse race for the title. It promises to be an awkward assignment though against a Brighton side who have done well themselves so far, sitting just one place and two points below City.

Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus may return to the side here after being on the bench midweek as could a few others if Pep Guardiola wants to shake things up. They have been startling of late, especially Phil Foden who should keep his spot in the side, they may need his passing quality to cut through a stubborn Brighton backline.

The Seagulls have seen 6 of their 8 games go under 2.5 goals whilst Man City have seen 3 of their 4 on the road go unders too, so to see the market favouring over 2.5 goals might leave a few scratching their heads. 21/20 on offer for under 2.5 goals looks a decent price to take here given both sides rank in the top 3 for goals shipped.
