They’re officially relegation free! Cardiff, the team just behind them, got relegated, so no matter what happens on weekend, Brighton are going to play another season in the top English flight. It wasn’t easy, but they did manage to stay above. And as the icing on the cake of the successful season, they would love to put a good result against current title holders.

It’s not just about getting a giant to fall; it’s also because they have lost every game against Man City in the Premier League since they got promoted here in 2017. Speaking of their duels with the Sky Blues from Manchester, Brighton have always put on pretty decent performances.

Actually, Brighton seem to always play well when faced against a really tough opponent. Last round, for instance, they played 1:1 with Arsenal in London. And this time, there’s absolutely no pressure on them. Their fans are coming to the Amex Stadium to have fun and celebrate another season in the Premier League. And when a team is stress-free, anything can happen. But, does this mean that our Brighton vs Manchester City prediction will suggest a major upset? Well, no. After all, it’s Man City we’re talking about here.

Manchester City

They got knocked out of the Champions League by Tottenham in the quarterfinal, so the biggest trophy they can win now is the Premier League title. And if they do it, it’s going to be deserved. They’ve been fantastic this entire season in the league, which the fact that they’ve won 95 points after 37 rounds clearly shows.

They’re also in a really good form in the league, with every single match won since January when they lost to Newcastle. They’ve also been extremely fruitful in terms of scoring. They’re the top-scoring team in the league with 91 goals. They are also sharing the top spot for the best defense with Liverpool, with 22 goals conceded.

Because Liverpool play Wolves at home, Man City surely don’t wish to gamble. They want to win this game and get their title with a win. Sure, they play away from home, but this season they’ve already won 13 games on the road, so it shouldn’t put too much stress on them. And these players, as well as their manager, know how to play important matches. This is why one of our Brighton vs Manchester City betting tips will be City win.
