Brighton & Hove Albion vs Manchester City Preview and Prediction.
Brighton & Hove Albion has nothing left to play for now that they have successfully clinched their spot in the Europa League for the upcoming season. But they’ll want to finish the year strong and give the home crowd more reasons to cheer.
The Seagulls entered the game with four victories in their previous six league games and are currently ranked sixth in the standings. Manchester City, on the other hand, have been on a tear and are currently on fire.
Although they have nothing to play for, they will attempt to scrape out a victory on the road on Wednesday. Although Manchester City has already won the Premier League, it remains to be seen if the players will maintain their motivation to perform well in this match.
Brighton & Hove Albion
Solly March, Jakub Moder, Jeremy Sarmiento, and Tariq Lamptey, all injured, won’t be available for the home team. With Jason Steele in goal, Brighton is likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Steele; Veltman, Dunk, Colwill, Estupinan; Moder, Caicedo; Enciso, Mac Allister, Mitoma; Ferguson
Given that they have two crucial finals coming up, Manchester City did not anticipate playing with a starting lineup that is particularly strong. Starting in goal behind a trio of Ruben Dias, Manuel Akanji, and Aymeric Laporte is Stefan Ortega.
Probable Lineup (3-4-3): Ortega; Dias, Akanji, Laporte; Lewis, Phillips, Foden, Gomez; Mahrez, Alvarez, Palmer
Brighton 1-2 Manchester City
This game is going to be close because neither team will have much motivation. Brighton will not likely perform at their peak because they have nothing to gain. Although Manchester City is in a similar situation, they have access to more talent and should be able to win this one.
