How we expect Manchester City to line-up versus Brighton

A comfortable 3-0 victory over Birmingham in the FA Cup was their sixth in a row across all competitions.

Ederson will return after recovering from coronavirus, while John Stones should also come back in. Ilkay Gundogan remained on the bench for the FA Cup third round tie so should start.

Bernardo Silva’s two goals could earn him another start – though you never know with Pep Guardiola – while Ferran Torres is available again after Covid. Riyad Mahrez is another option.

There remain question marks over Raheem Sterling’s fitness, but Gabriel Jesus will lead the line with Sergio Aguero self-isolating.

Manchester City predicted XI (4-3-3): Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Mendy, Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne, Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling
