Brighton will be hoping to upset Manchester City once again when they welcome them to the Amex Stadium for Saturday’s Premier League clash.

Graham Potter’s men recorded a surprise 3-2 victory over the eventual champions when they met here last season, ending a run of seven Premier League defeats in seven encounters.

Brighton vs Manchester City latest odds

Having lost just one of their 10 games in all competitions this season, they are available at 7/1 (8.0) with bet365 to pull off another shock win.

However, the Citizens are unbeaten in seven league games and are clear 2/5 (1.40) favourites to collect all three points in East Sussex.

Each of the hosts’ last three fixtures have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 15/4 (4.75) on them playing out another stalemate in this one.

Brighton vs Manchester City goalscorer

Neal Maupay is the home side’s 10/1 (11.0) favourite to break the deadlock as he leads their scoring charts with four goals from the first eight league games, while former Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck is available at 14/1 (15.0) to score first against his old rivals.

Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden are all priced at 11/2 (6.50) to open the scoring, with the latter perhaps the best bet after hitting the net in both matches against this opposition last season.

Brighton vs Manchester City preview

Having scored just twice in the seven previous Premier League matches against Pep Guardiola’s team, the Seagulls put three goals past them in a match that saw Joao Cancelo sent off within 10 minutes last time out.

It would probably take a similar turn of events for Brighton to have much joy yet again considering they have only scored four times in their last six league fixtures – drawing a blank in each of the last two.

Brighton vs Manchester City predictions

With City having kept a clean sheet in six of their eight league games this campaign, odds of 6/5 (2.20) seem generous on them returning to form by winning to nil for the fourth time in five meetings on Saturday.
