Brighton vs Manchester City Match Preview
Manchester City have only one more hurdle to overcome in an unrelenting Premier League title race – and are expected to clear it with aplomb at Brighton to lift the trophy again.
Neither City nor Liverpool have flinched over the last couple of months of the season, slugging it out like heavyweights with victory after victory and not a single dropped point between them in their respective last eight games.
For City, that sequence stretches back all the way to the end of January when they lost at Newcastle – since then it has been 13 straight Premier League wins for Pep Guardiola’s side.
The decisive moment, you have to feel, was Vincent Kompany’s stunning long-range goal that sunk Leicester on Monday and put the reigning champions one point clear at the top of the table entering the season’s final day.
Therefore, another triumph at the Amex Stadium will make it four league titles in eight years for the Cityzens, who edged out Brighton in the FA Cup semi-finals with a solitary Raheem Sterling goal and, on recent form, they are unlikely to run right away with this one either.
But it is very difficult to see City blowing this opportunity because they have been so reliable domestically this term and while the Seagulls have been keeping things tight, and drew 1-1 at Arsenal last weekend, a routine success should get the job done and end Liverpool’s hopes.
