Brighton News and Form

It is an eight-match winless streak of form that Brighton are currently on in the top flight, losing five of those. However, each of the three draws that they have taken in that sequence have happened inside their last four fixtures. It has been points which has helped them secure top-flight status for next season. If they were to get another draw on Sunday then that would throw a massive wrench in the title plans of Manchester City. The Seagulls have only managed one point from their last four Premier League home games now so they are struggling. Brighton themselves produced just one goal in that run of four games.

In their home campaign this season in the top flight, Brighton have averaged a goal per game. Only 39% of league fixtures at the Amex Stadium have gone over 2.5 goals. In their seven games played this season against the other top four teams, home and away, Brighton suffered a defeat in each of them. They did, however, score in each of their three home games in that sequence. They would certainly make things interesting in this one if they could get themselves on the scoreboard?

The overall home record of Brighton for the season is W6 D5 L7 but they have lost five of their last eight in there (W1 D2). The seagulls have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last four home games, and overall this season they have managed one in 28% of their home fixtures. Five of their six home wins which they have recorded have been by a one-goal margin. Each of their last five league outings have all gone under 2.5 goals. There is no pressure on Brighton on the final day of the season as they have already secured survival.

Manchester City News and Form

It is a 13 match winning streak that Manchester City are currently on at the moment. If they were to make it on to 14 in a row, then it means that they will keep the Premier League title at the Etihad Stadium. This has been such a wonderful run of form from the Citizens and with this huge streak going, could not have done anything more. Of course, this run has not been without its stresses. They have taken a 1-0 victory in three of their last four games played. So they have been squeezing out results. Away from home Manchester City are on a six-match winning streak.

The overall away record of Manchester City this season is W13 D2 L3 and they have averaged 1.9 goals per away game. Defensively they have done brilliantly as they have only conceded 10 goals on their travels all season. They picked up a clean sheet in the total of 61% of away fixtures this season. Their defensive efforts have to be noted because it has been a key part to them keeping up their title challenge. In their last 12 league games, home and away, Manchester City have conceded just the two goals, collecting 10 clean sheets.

Of their away wins this season in the top flight, nine of the 13 have been by a margin of at least two goals. Manchester City have been leading at the halftime break in 11 of their road fixtures, opening the scoring in all but three of their 18 away games. The Citizens have scored in each of their last 10 road games. If you combine their home and away Premier League fixtures, City have scored in each of their last 21 league games. Of those 10 goals which they have conceded away from home this season, 70% of them have come in the second period of fixtures. It is one more huge effort needed from them.

Brighton v Manchester City Predictions

Manchester City to win: Brighton don’t have anything to play for the moment, and even though they did get a point against Arsenal last weekend, they are a low-scoring side and Manchester City would be happy to show up and produce a low scoring victory. Manchester City to win to nil.
