Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City Betting Tips & Predictions | English Premier League Match Preview
The American Express Community Stadium, Brighton – 12 August, 17:30.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Chris Hughton who led Brighton the the Premier League last season had been handed the almost impossible task on the first day, overcoming the bookies favourite for the league title. Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City can be found as low of 15/8 to win the title this season whilst Brighton are widely considered as one of the favourites to be relegated come the end of the season.
Brighton have been busy in the transfer market rings in no fewer than eight players and spending at least £26 million as well as seeing eleven players go the other way. Despite their squad overhaul so far this summer their key player to their chances of survival still very much remains French winger Anthony Knockaert although he is considered a doubt to be fit enough to start on Saturday which is a major blow for the hosts.
City meanwhile have continued to spend big this summer by spending over £125 million not just full backs as they have acquired Danilo from Real Madrid, Benjamin Mendy from Monaco and Kyle Walker from league rivals Tottenham. They have also brought in Benfica goalkeeper Ederson to challenge for the top keepers spot and perhaps their most exciting transfer is that of Bernado Silva.
On top of those quality players you still have to remember the quality they already have with players such as Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne and this is the first time we will see a full season from Gabriel Jesus who has looked fantastic both in pre season and the games were he played already.
Even the most optimistic and diehard Brighton fans will find it hard here to make a case for then hosts to beat the title favourites and we think that the odds of City to best Brighton as low as 1/3 are completely justified considering the difference in quality and experience between the sides. We are tipping City to win this one by at least two goals and it can be backed at 3/5 with bet365. In search of a real value bet we are backing City to bag quite a few goals here without response and our correct score prediction of a 3-0 win for the visitors is being offered at 8/1.
