Match preview

The efforts of champions Manchester City to track down rampant Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table will resume on Saturday afternoon, at the Etihad Stadium.

Next on the agenda for Pep Guardiola’s men? A meeting with stuttering Brighton & Hove Albion.

City, of course, are fresh off an altogether disappointing defeat last time out.

After recovering from a surprise pair of points dropped at Aston Villa courtesy of a trio of successive league wins, the Sky Blues, last time out, made the trip to Anfield for a crunch meeting with rivals Liverpool.

City, as a result, have slipped a full four points off the pace set by league leaders Arsenal.

Erling Haaland is one who will no doubt be particularly keen to make his mark on Saturday, after drawing just a 2nd blank of the campaign last time out.

And who would bet against the champions securing a return to winning ways at the expense of a Brighton outfit looking somewhat lost since the departure of beloved head coach Graham Potter.

The Seagulls were of course forced to bid farewell to their manager last month, owing to an approach from capital giants Chelsea.

And they have since, in turn, failed to secure a solitary win four attempts, racking up two points from an available twelve.

The latest of these points hauls did come last time out, but even that arrived in underwhelming fashion for Roberto De Zerbi’s side.

A home meeting with Premier League basement dwellers Nottingham Forest culminated in a 0-0 stalemate, leaving Brighton in danger of slipping into the bottom half of the table come the close of the upcoming round of fixtures.

We at 101 are therefore backing Manchester City to ultimately emerge triumphant, come the full-time whistle at the Etihad on Saturday afternoon.
