One of the most interesting games taking place this weekend in the English Premier League will take place at Falmer Stadium between Brighton and Manchester City. The English top-flight's sensation are set to prove their worth against one of the strongest teams in the tournament, and fans and experts will surely be looking forward to see what they can do against Pep Guardiola's multi-talented team.
The hosts make it to this game with everything to play for. Graham Potter's men are on a five-game streak without a loss, but only two of those have been wins. Their last game at home ended in a goalless draw against Arsenal, and the Seagulls will surely want to give fans a reasons to smile when they face the Cityzens.
If Brighton want to claim a win here, then they will have to rely on Neal Maupay's skills in front of goal, as the footballer has scored four times during the season. His prowess will be put to a test when he faces a defensive unit that has only conceded three times this season.
As for the Cityzens, Pep Guardiola will try to lead his team to a second win in a row. The defending champions have not lost any of their last six, but they have drawn two out of their last four matches, and that fact has to be quite a thorn on Guardiola's side. Those draws have prevented Manchester City from claiming the top spot in the league, and their resilience will be put to test by a team that has only conceded five times in eight games.
Speaking about individual performances, the defending champions will be eager to see Gabriel Jesús in action, as he has been the most decisive player for the team in the final third of the pitch. The Brazilian player has scored twice and has also handed out four assists, which means that he has been involved in 37% of the team's goals this season. Other notable players to keep an eye on will be, of course, Kevin de Bruyne and Bernardo Silva, both of them with two goals to their name.
Let's have a closer look at some more stats and news ahead of the clash between the third and fifth-ranked teams in the English Premier League.
