Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester City – Premier League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction.

This Saturday, the 11th of July, 2020, the EPL will continue as Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester City gets underway at the Falmer stadium on Match Day 35.

The Citizens come off an emphatic 5-0 victory over a very sorry looking Newcastle side to remain 2nd on the league table. They have 69 points from 34 league appearance with a current form that reads; WWLWLW. So far, the Citizens have 22W, 3D and 9L. City is the highest scoring side in the Premier League with 86 goals thanks to a goal ratio of 2.4 per game. We can expect a 4-3-3 formation from Pep Guardiola

which might feature a different starting line-up as he hopes to rotate his squad for as much as possible till the season comes to its conclusion. Aguero was absent once more for City as he recovers from a knee surgery but that didn’t stop City’s goal rush against Newcastle on Wednesday. He’s expected to return for the UEFA Champions League match between City and Real Madrid in August.

Meanwhile, Brighton come off a 1-3 defeat to Liverpool – their second in six games; DWDLWL. The Seagulls are 15th on the league table and have been trying to pick up as much points as possible to avoid dropping into the red zone. Brighton have 36 points from 34 appearances with 8W, 12D and 14L. They have scored 36 goals and conceded 47 leaving them with a GD of -11. 45-year-old coach, Graham Potter has favoured a 4-2-2-2 formation with Neal Maupay and Connolly expected to lead the attack. Neal Maupay failed to score for the Seagulls in recent games but has 9 goals in total. He will be a key player for Brighton, along with Leandro Trossard when the Citizens’ come visiting at the Falmer stadium on Saturday for their 35th league appearance of the season.

The reverse fixture ended 4-0 – a victory for Manchester City. Previously, they played in May 2019 and it ended in a 1-4 victory for City. They also met on the 6th of 2019 and it ended in another 1-0 victory for Manchester City.

As expected, the games will continue behind closed doors until the season comes to an end.

0-3 is predicted at full-time.
