Man City vs Brighton: Premier League – LIVE!

Manchester City have looked back close to their title-winning best in recent weeks, stringing together a run of six straight wins in all competitions. 

They welcome struggling Brighton to the Etihad this evening and know that victory would see them move within four points of new Premier League leaders Manchester United, with a game in hand. 

City won this fixture last season with a 4-0 thrashing, and things were even worse for the Seagulls on their own turf as Pep Guardiola’s side running out 5-0 winners at the Amex in July. 

Graham Potter’s men have not won in the Premier League since November 21 and find themselves just three points clear of the relegation zone, with 18th-placed Fulham having played two fewer games.

Guardiola was able to rest some of his key men for the FA Cup win over Birmingham City at the weekend, and some of those who did play, such as Kevin de Bruyne, were withdrawn early with a comfortable victory in the bag. 

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