Match Preview & Team News
Manchester City quickly returned to winning ways last weekend when they saw off Bournemouth 1-3 away at Vitality Stadium. Sergio Aguero completed a brace, while Raheem Sterling added a goal himself to take his league tally to impressive five in opening three matches. The Citizens won two and drew one of the opening three affairs and they will have a nice chance to record another victory on Saturday afternoon when Brighton & Hove Albion come to visit Etihad Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s machinery were ruthless in front of the home crowd in the previous term of the Premier League. They’ve won 18 of 19 home outings last season with an amazing 57-12 goal difference along the way. They are going up against a team which struggled badly on travels in the 2018/19 campaign. The Seagulls won 3, drew 4 and lost 12 of 19 away matches last season.
Moving forward, the visitors will come into this low on confidence following a disappointing 0-2 defeat to Southampton last weekend. Chris Hughton’s men thus ruined a promising start and a 0-3 win at Watford by claiming just one point from following two home encounters against the likes of West Ham United and Southampton.
Manchester City have won each of the last five head to head meetings with the Seagulls. The streak includes a 1-4 victory in the last round of the previous season. Brighton only managed to score two goals in the last five clashes against Man City.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Home win to nil is our main betting prediction for this match at 4/7 odds given that Brighton have failed to find the back of the net in the clash with the Saints last weekend and given they’ve only found two goals in the last five encounters with the Citizens.
Goalscorers Market Prediction
Raheem Sterling has been unstoppable so far in the season. He scored five goals in three appearances and we will back him to score anytime here at the odds of 8/13.
