Brighton vs Man City Prediction: Premier League Match | 24.05.2023 –
The recently crowned Premier League champions return to action on Wednesday evening, as they travel to the Amex to take on Brighton. The visitors could secure a Europa League spot with a point against Manchester City.
Premier League Preview
It could be a famous three weeks or so for Manchester City, as they have their sights set on adding two more pieces of silverware to their collection. Pep Guardiola’s side finally got their hands on the Premier League title on Sunday, as their confirmation of champions was announced following Arsenal’s defeat on the road against Nottingham Forest. City will be looking to maintain their winning run before their FA Cup final against Manchester United on June 3rd.
City celebrated winning their third straight league title on Sunday after claiming a 1-0 win at the Etihad against Chelsea. Julian Alvarez netted the only goal in that success, and he could be handed another start against the Seagulls on Wednesday. Guardiola will likely make changes to his team, as crucial finals against Manchester United and Inter Milan creep into sight.
This is arguably a bigger game for Brighton on Wednesday, as they could secure their spot in next season’s Europa League. The Seagulls need just one more point to secure sixth in the standings, and it is the very least that they deserve after an excellent campaign in the Premier League this term. Brighton comes into this game after landing a 3-1 win over Southampton on Sunday, and they have won three of their last five.
But, the Seagulls have a poor record against teams starting the day at the top of the standings, as they have won just once in their last seven. However, that win was secured over Man City at the Amex in May 2021.
Brighton vs Man City Head to Head
Brighton has a poor record in this fixture, as they have lost ten of their eleven matches against City in the Premier League. City has scored in all eleven Premier League clashes with the Seagulls, and they have averaged three goals per game.
Brighton vs Man City Prediction
Brighton’s poor record in this fixture would be a concern. But, it could be worth siding with the hosts to secure their Europa League spot on Wednesday given that Guardiola will be resting many of the club’s top stars.
