Manchester City Preview – Can Man City continue winning run?

Manchester City moved up into 5th place on the Premier League ladder with an impressive 3-1 win away from home at Chelsea which also underlined their recent resurgence having previously also collected maximum points in wins against Southampton and Newcastle United.

City hardly broke into a sweat in their FA Cup third round tie against Championship strugglers, Birmingham City, as Pep Guardiola’s outfit swept aside The Blues with a convincing 3-0 victory which also brought up six wins on the trot in all competitions.

All of this is an ominous sign for Wednesday’s visitors, Brighton, especially as Manchester City are now unbeaten in their last 10 matches at home in all competitions, winning eight of these along with having won each of the last six meetings on the trot against their visitors as well.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Brighton Preview – Can Brighton avoid heavy defeat?

A penalty shoot-out eventually decided Brighton’s FA Cup tie against League Two side, Newport County, with The Seagulls coming out on top but although the south coast club are now through to the 4th round of the competition, the manner of victory was hardly convincing.

This therefore doesn’t bode well for this midweek clash against an improving Manchester City side especially when you consider that Brighton have failed to win any of their last eight matches in the English top flight, and indeed, just two wins all season to date.

An away record of 2-3-3 11/13 has just about helped keep Brighton’s heads above water but this upcoming clash against Manchester City looks more like damage limitation than anything else.
