20:00 Thursday

Arsenal kept the pressure on Manchester City with a thumping win over Chelsea on Tuesday night. Pep Guardiola’s side can get to within one point of the league leaders with a win on the south coast against Roberto De Zerbi’s Brighton.

Brighton vs Man City Prediction

Brighton will have had ample rest by the time their welcome of Manchester City comes around as they seek to arrest a four-game winless run. The Seagulls have lost only three times at home this season, and despite their poor form; will make things difficult for City.

The defending champions booked their place in the FA Cup final over the weekend and will have two games in hand on Liverpool and Arsenal by the time they kick off later this week. Pep Guardiola's side have won only one of their last three trips to the Amex.

With more at stake, City should return to Manchester with a huge three points in tow.

Score Prediction: Brighton 1-3 Man City (11/1 bet365)

Brighton vs Man City Tips

Manchester City to Win @ 6/13 VBet (1 point)

The Seagulls have struggled this season and managed to win just two of their last 10 matches across all competitions. They have a rotten record against Manchester City, losing 12 of their 14 matches against them since being promoted from the Championship.

Pep Guardiola’s side must win to remain on track in the race for the title. City have been here before so don’t expect the pressure to tell. They are unbeaten in their last 17 Premier League matches and are full of confidence.
