Brighton vs Manchester City predictions: Manchester City line-up
After an enthralling 1-0 victory against Leicester City on Monday, Manchester City need just one more victory to retain their Premier League title.
Pep Guardiola’s side take on Brighton, who looked a different side against Arsenal last weekend when they realistically ended the Gunners’ top-four hopes by holding them to a 1-1 draw.
Any slip up by Manchester City on the last day of the season will put Liverpool in pole position to their first league title in almost 30 years, which Pep Guardiola simply can’t afford after Champions League exit.
Kevin de Bruyne and Claudio Bravo are both expected to miss out with injuries, while Fernandinho a huge doubt with a knee problem. Guardiola will have everybody else at his disposal for the massive game on Sunday.
Probable Manchester City XI
Manager: Pep Guardiola
City’s only available first-team goalkeeper, the Brazilian is a sure starter for the game at the weekend.
Kyle Walker (RB)
The former Spurs star hasn’t hit the form of last season but is still a dangerous player on the attack.
Vincent Kompany (CB)
The skipper scored the goal of his wildest dreams to give City the win against the Foxes and he deserves to start and potentially lift the title on Sunday.
Aymeric Laporte (CB)
City’s best defender this season, Laporte will be looking to sign off an incredible campaign in style against Brighton.
Benjamin Mendy (LB)
The Frenchman hasn’t really had the chance to show his quality on the pitch but he is a brilliant full-back and should start on Sunday.
Ilkay Gundogan (CM)
With Fernandinho unlikely to start, Gundogan will again have the important task of guarding City’s defence while also helping out the attack from deep.
David Silva (CM)
The Spaniard’s creativity will be important against a Brighton side who will sit deep. He should start in the midfield.
Phil Foden (CM)
The youngster didn’t have the best of games against Leicester but he has been impressive whenever he has played and he should start on Sunday.
Bernardo Silva (RW)
Manchester City’s best player this season, Silva has been outstanding both on the right wing as well as in a central position, and he is a sure starter.
Raheem Sterling (RW)
The former Liverpool man has been in incredible form this season and he will be looking to add to his tally on Sunday.
