Brighton & Hove Albion hosts Manchester City
Brighton & Hove Albion hosts Manchester City at the American Express in a match from the 9th round of the Premier League. Stay with us and our football prediction betting tips today for this clash. It should be a good one!
It’s not too much to say that Brighton & Hove are the biggest surprise in the Premier League so far. The Seagulls are not looking like themselves, but in a good way. Brighton are doing so good that they currently sit in the Top 4 – they are 4th with 15 points won. It’s safe to say that nobody really expected such a performance from Graham Potter’s team, but they found a way to impress.
It gets even more impressive. Brighton & Hove have conceded just five goals since the start of the season which makes them the team with the third best defense in the league. We don’t know what the manager Potter did with the team in the summer, but obviously it’s working well.
In their last game Brighton & Hove Albion went unbeaten again. The Seagulls faced Norwich City at the Carrow Road and won a point after a 0-0 draw.
Manchester City are chasing the top. The champions lost their opening game for the season, but they are unbeaten in the last seven matches. City are currently third in the league with 17 points – just two less than the leader Chelsea. And two more than their next opponent.
In the previous round City faced Burnley at the Etihad and secured a solid 2-0 win. They also showed their strength during the week when they scored five goals in the Champions League. Riyad Mahrez used his chance to start and scored a brace against Club Brugge at the Jan Breydelstadion while Joao Cancelo, Kyle Walker and the young Cole Palmer put the ball in the net as well.
Pep Guardiola gave a rest to Gabriel Jesus against the Belgians, but most likely the Brazilian will return in the starting eleven at the American Express. Jesus is playing very well since the start of the season and he should feel fresh after not playing on Tuesday. Let’s see what Guardiola is going to decide, though.
That’s the football prediction betting tips today for the Premier League fixture between Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester City. This won’t be an easy game for the champions – Brighton are one of the biggest sensations since the start of the season.
