Brighton vs Man City tips and predictions: Phil Foden eyes momentous goal against favourite rivals

Manchester City continue their hunt for the Premier League title away in Brighton as they travel to the south coast this Thursday night (2000 BST).

City boss Pep Guardiola made headlines last weekend after slamming the fixture schedule which saw his side play on a Wednesday and Saturday.

With the Citizens enjoying a four-day gap between fixtures on this occasion, the Spaniard should be in a better mood as his men resume their title aspirations.

Another reason to be happy are some of the facts and figures ahead of their clash with Brighton.

In what is a must-win games for the Citizens, all the numbers point to a comprehensive away victory.


For instance, the Seagulls are in the midst of a slump having gone four matches without a win. During this period, the team have only found the back of the net on two occasions and conceded six in the process.

The head-to-head record isn’t any better. Brighton have won just one of their last 14 meetings against City. Guardiola’s men, on the other hand, have been victorious in 12 of these encounters.

Backing a City win doesn’t necessarily offer much in the way of excitement in the betting market.

Nevertheless, one bet which does stand out is for Phil Foden to get on the scoresheet. The England man is enjoying another tremendous season and is on the lookout for his 50th Premier League goal.

Considering the midfielder has scored six goals in seven appearances against Brighton, we’re backing the youngster to strike once more.


Team news

Brighton’s list of injuries is truly startling. The hosts will be without Julio Enciso, Pervis Estupinan, Evan Ferguson, Billy Gilmour, Jack Hinshelwood, Tariq Lamptey, Solomon March, James Milner, Kaoru Mitoma and Adam Webster.

City, meanwhile, will be keeping a close eye on Erling Haaland who is not a 100% ahead of the trip to the south coast.
