Manchester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion betting tips: Premier League preview, predictions and odds

Manchester City have won their last 18 Premier League matches played on Wednesdays. Having won 1-0 at Anfield last season, Brighton are looking to become just the third club to win away to reigning Premier League champions in back-to-back seasons. 

Manchester City to win and over 2.5 goals is 8/11.

Manchester City to win and both teams to score NO is 4/6.

Phil Foden has scored four times against Brighton, more than against any other club. He is 9/2 to break the deadlock and 5/4 to add to this tally.

Match preview

Manchester City are left fighting for two competitions this season, but they are the big two, so it could still be an historic campaign for the Citizens.

On Saturday, for the third season in a row, the Sky Blues' FA Cup hopes came to an end at Wembley with semi-final heartbreak.

They actually found themselves 3-0 down against Liverpool, with second half goals from Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva unable to spark a comeback.

Nevertheless, Pep Guardiola's side still have plenty to play for.

Next Tuesday, they'll welcome Real Madrid to Manchester for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final showdown.

Back in the Premier League, Man City remain one point clear of Liverpool, after those two played out an exhilarating 2-2 draw ten days ago.

So, Guardiola's team have just seven league games remaining but, if they are to retain the title, they might have to win all of them.

As for Brighton & Hove Albion, they've already shown in the last couple of weeks that they're capable of causing an upset.

Graham Potter's side lost six on the bounce in February/March, before kicking off April with a frustrating goalless draw against Norwich.

However, the Seagulls then sparked into life, beating Arsenal 2-1 with Leandro Trossard and Enock Mwepu on target at the Emirates.

Seven days later, they completed the North London double with Trossard on target again, this time in the 90th minute, over at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

So, Brighton have soared up to tenth place and are now looking to win three successive Premier League away games for the first time.

Despite the Seagulls' recent resurgence, Manchester City are likely to cruise to victory at the Etihad.

Manchester City team news

Kyle Walker could be out for the rest of the season due to his injury sustained against Atlético Madrid.

In better news, Kevin De Bruyne, who also went off in the Spanish capital, was on the bench at Wembley so will be available for this one.

As was Rúben Dias, who hasn't featured since late-February but is back now.

Ederson, İlkay Gündoğan and Riyāḍ Maḥrez are all likely to return to the side.

Brighton & Hove Albion team news

The visitors are without Shane Duffy, Jakub Moder and Steven Alzate due to injury.

Graham Potter has deployed a 3-4-3 for both of Brighton's last two games, but this'll surely more look like a back five here.

Highly-rated Ecuadorian Moisés Caicedo made his Premier League debut at Arsenal, but is set to start a third game in a row.

Leandro Trossard is looking to become the first Brighton player to score in three consecutive Premier League away games.
