What Trueform says for Man City vs Brighton
Manchester City may have been caught in a party mood when held to a draw by Huddersfield on Sunday and are expected to resume winning ways against Brighton.
The Seagulls celebrated staying up following a home win over Manchester United and they may now be the ones lacking in focus at Etihad Stadium.
We’re kicking off our Man City vs Brighton betting predictions by taking 23/4 for a 3-0 home victory.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
Having scored 12 goals in wins over Tottenham, Swansea and West Ham, Manchester City failed to sparkle for once when drawing 0-0 with the Terriers, prior to receiving the Premier League trophy.
Pep Guardiola warned that the manner in which the Terriers dug in could be a taste of things to come next season.
However, we feel this is a gilt-edged chance for the Blues to set new Premier League records for most wins, goals and points in a season.
Speaking of rejuvenating his team, the Spaniard said: “Here we had time to accept the reality. We won two, three weeks ago. We were surprised how good we maintained our focus.
“Against Huddersfield, for many a reason, we were not able. We have to try to make the last effort.”
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton reached the magical 40-point mark after Pascal Gross bagged the only goal in the home win over Manchester United.
Securing their Premier League status with two games to spare has seen head coach Chris Hughton nominated for the manager of the year award.
Hughton insisted: “I don’t think they had a clear-cut chance and we were good value for the win.”
However, we also took note of his comments: “It’s a relief because even going into the game I felt, for our season’s work so far, that we deserved to stay in this league.
“So it’s a relief that we’ve done it and I’m really proud of the group of players.”
Those words suggest all at the club will now consider it a case of ‘job done’ prior to tough trips to City and Liverpool.
Ilkay Gundogan is another player who could come in for the hosts and 8/1 for him to break the deadlock is worth adding to our Man City vs Brighton betting tips.
MAN CITY 0-0 Huddersfield
BRIGHTON 1-0 Man Utd – Pascal Gross
Head-to-head: Brighton 0-2 Man City
