The Seagulls were heavily pounded by the men in white and sky blue last term and the same could repeat itself this weekend

Manchester City welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to the Etihad Stadium for Saturday’s matchday seven Premier League encounter.

The Citizens only blemish so far in the top-flight was a 1-1 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers on matchday three.

Every other game has been victories and having beaten the seagulls in last season’s league double, it’s not rocket science to see why they are clear favourites at odds of (1.10) with Bet365.

Chris Houghton’s men have had a tough start, winning just one of their opening six league games, drawing two and losing three.

Astonishingly, their only victory game against Manchester United at the Amex Stadium and any chance of such shocking result repeating itself on Saturday is available at a mouth-watering price of (34.00).

A draw stands at odds of (12.00).

It’s no news that City have one of the best attacking sides in the Premier League. In their double over Brighton last term, they bagged five goals each. What’s more is that Pep Guardiola’s charges were responsible for 40% of the occurrences where five or more goals were scored in the previous campaign.

Bet365 puts an offer of (1.44) on the table, that will see the outcome pan out at the Etihad.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
