The Seagulls have not won any of their nine away match against this opposition, losing their most recent five in a row.

Manchester City vs Brighton latest odds

Having won just four of their last 33 Premier League fixtures on the road, they are hefty 25/1 (26.00) outsiders with 888Sport to pull off a shock victory here.

Pep Guardiola’s men are unbeaten in 17 league matches, and are clear 1/12 (1.08) favourites to maintain their 100 per cent winning Premier League record against the visitors by coming out on top.

The hosts were held to a 2-2 draw by Tottenham in their last home game, and there are odds of 10/1 (11.00) on them being forced to settle for a single point once again.

Benjamin Mendy, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane are all definitely ruled out, although John Stones could be in contention after returning to training following a muscular problem.

The champions will have fond recent memories of facing this opposition, having secured the title with an emphatic 4-1 win at the Amex Stadium in May.

They have continued that prolific form this campaign, scoring 10 goals in their first three league games – albeit conceding three times in their last two.

Having seen his Swansea side take a 2-0 half-time lead before suffering a 3-2 defeat against the Citizens in last season’s FA Cup quarter-finals, new manager Graham Potter is likely to adopt similarly ambitious tactics yet again.

Manchester City vs Brighton predictions

All in all, odds of 10/13 (1.77) are not to be missed on over 3.5 goals being scored for City’s fourth league game in four this season, and third league encounter in four against Brighton.
