Brighton sack Chris Hughton

That happened after Glenn Murray fired the Seagulls 1-up against the Sky Blues.

Less than two minutes later, however, Sergio Aguero pulled City level, before Aymeric Laporte headed City into a half-time lead.

Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gundogan scored two beautiful goals in the second-half to win the game and wrap up the title.

On Monday morning, Brighton have confirmed that they’ve sacked manager Chris Hughton.

Graham Potter is the early favourite with Ladbrokes to replace Chris Hughton as Brighton manager.

Following Hughton’s shock exit on Monday morning, the bookies have priced Potter at just 1/3 to take over at the Amex.

That puts him streets ahead of Rafa Benitez and Roberto Martinez in the betting at 10/1 apiece, while Mikel Arteta is a 16/1 shot.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “We’re scratching our heads about this morning’s decision, but the early betting points towards Graham Potter replacing Hughton.”
