Brighton vs Manchester City
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 18 May 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium.
The Citizens have already been confirmed champions, and confidence is at an all-time high for them. Now they have the Champions League Final coming up, and would want to build some momentum. And against the dismal Seagulls, they easily are the favorites.
At present, Graham Potter’s men are placed 17th in the table – which is the final safe spot in the English Premier League. Due to their eleven-point lead, they have confirmed their safety, but fact remains that they are the worst of all the 17 squads that have extended their stay.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola’s men are not just the best team in England, but they could even be called the best in Europe.
They are gunning for their maiden European title with a showdown with Chelsea in the CL final, and it’s important for them to get back to their form – especially since they had lost against the Blues recently in the PL.
Going on, they have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the English top flight, and have conceded the least as well. Note that they also have a superb h2h record against this foe over the years.
Likely, expect a routine win for Manchester City this Tuesday at the Amex Stadium.
Brighton vs Manchester City: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse encounter had ended in a 1-0 win.
- The combined scorecard for the past three meetings is 10-0, in favor of them.

Brighton vs Manchester City Prediction
The Seagulls were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham the last match-day. In the meantime, the Citizens recorded a 3-4 win on the road against Newcastle.
Going on, Potter’s men were winless in 12 of their past 15 overall fixtures, and they have a total of just five wins at home since July of 2020.
On the other hand, their counterparts had won six of their former seven matches, and had won 20 of their preceding 21 road trips.
On top of that, Pep’s men also have a phenomenal h2h record against this opponent over the years.
Taking into account these observations, expect a Manchester City victory this Tuesday at the Amex Stadium.
