Betting Tips and Predictions: Brighton vs Manchester City

Betting Tips and Predictions: Brighton vs Manchester City, Premier League. In the Round 1 in Premier League, Brighton host Manchester City at Falmer Stadium. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Brighton vs Manchester City.

Gabriel Jesus, Manchester City

Brighton made fantastic result last season when they promoted in Premier League and the match against Manchester City will be their first official game in the best football league in England. Their debut in Premier League won’t be easy because they face with one of the main favorites to win the title this season. They played few friendlies in the recent period and made good result, while in the last test game they lost against Atletico Madrid 2-3. Home side will be fully motivated to make good result against team from Manchester. Their main goal is to avoid relegation, so every single point could be crucial for them. It’s hard to believe that they can beat City, but one point will be big as victory. Brighton have signed Isaiah Brown (West Brom), Izzy Brown (Chelsea), Mathias Normann (Bodo/Glimt), Markus Suttner (Ingolstadt) and Ales Mateju (Plzen), so we will see what they can do against strong opponent.

Manchester City finished the last season at the 3rd position and they want to make better results this season and win the title. They have signed three very good players: Kyle Walker (Tottenham), Danilo (Real Madrid) and Benjamin Mendy (Monaco), so they look even stronger than previous season. In the last friendly game they smashed West Ham 3-0 and both strikers, Gabriel Jesus and Kun Aguero, hit the net. Pep Guardiola has rotated many players last season, so we will see how it will look this season, but we can expect both strikers to be in the first eleven. Kevin de Bruyne played very good last season and he should have more significant role in the team this season. According to bookies, Aguero is the 3rd favorite to become the top goalscorer, behind Lukaku and Kane, but Jesus is closer to start every match, so he could make impressive performance this season and score many goals.

Team News

Home side have full squad available, except doubtful Baldock and March. On the other side, visitors will be without Gundogan, while Nasri and Mendy are both doubtful.
