Brighton vs Manchester City Premier League Predictions and Match Preview by LeagueLane

Brighton vs Manchester City
English Premier League
Date: 24 May 2023, Wednesday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: The American Express Community Stadium (Falmer).

Brighton will host the newly-crowned champions in a festive atmosphere in the postponed fixture of Gameweek No 32 on Wednesday evening at The AMEX.

The hosts have secured European football for the first time in their history after beating Southampton 3-1 on Sunday, while the Citizens locked their third successive Premier League title the day before, following Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat at The City Ground.

The Seagulls will almost certainly finish sixth and qualify for the UEFA Europa League next season.

They are three points above seventh-placed Aston Villa and own a much better goal difference (+16), meaning only a miracle can drop them below the sixth at this stage.

The team led by Roberto De Zerbi have registered some very odd results of late. They have conceded nine goals combined in defeats to Everton (1-5) and Newcastle (1-4) but also scored three goals in each of the victories over Arsenal (3-0) and Southampton (3-1) in the previous four outings.

The Italian manager could rotate his squad a bit here with the final day clash against Aston Villa in mind, as well as the fact that his players have constantly played in the weekend-midweek rhythm in May.

Speaking of rotations, Pep Guardiola left nine of his first-team regulars on the bench in the weekend’s 1-0 win over Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium.

He may as well do the same for this Brighton tie before playing the full XI exactly one week before the FA Cup final against Manchester United.
