Manchester City vs Brighton Match Preview and Team News
After a 3-0 win over Birmingham City in the FA Cup third round, City goes to this game, which was their sixth straight win and 13th unbeaten outing. They last lost in November 2020 and head to this clash with two games in hand and having secured a place in the League Cup final. With a win here, City will rise to third place, and having two games in hand, with great form, places them well as title contenders. It has all been going well for City in defense and attack; they have ten clean sheets in the last 13 matches, and they have scored two or more goals in their previous five games. The team has conceded two goals, kept three clean sheets, and scored 14 goals in the last five games, and has a good diversity in goal scorers, a mark of a well-drilled team. In the Premier League, City is unbeaten in the last seven matches, keeping five clean sheets and scoring 14 goals. Phil Foden shows her talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Raheem Sterling is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
On the other hand, Brighton labored to a win over League Two side Newport County in their FA Cup fixture. The Premier League side needed a win on post-match penalties after a 1-1 draw with the minnows after extra time. Brighton scored in stoppage time and an own goal right after throwing the game into extra time, and the pre-match favorites could only avoid a shock through post-match penalties. Their form hasn’t been the best; they head here without an outright win in nine matches and risk dropping to the relegation zone with a loss, though a win could see them rise to 16th. Brighton has no clean sheet in the last five games, while they have just one in the previous 10. They have conceded two or more goals in half of their last eight matches and scored two or more in only four of their previous 15 games. Pascal Gross is an experienced player who means a lot to the team, he moves well, and he can play in several positions. Tariq Lamptey is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. Neal Maupay was the best player of the team last season, he scored ten goals, he is doing great in the penalty area, and he is a real team leader, all praise for him.
