Man City vs Brighton LIVE: Latest score, goals and updates from Premier League fixture tonight
Sergio Agüero’s sensational strike against Brighton
Meanwhile, fortunes are not so bright on the south coast, with Graham Potter’s side winless in the league since late November. Brighton have produced plenty of promising moments, but that has rarely translated into points and they now find themselves in the jaws of a relegation battle. They remain three points clear of 18th placed Fulham, however, the Cottagers have two games in hand. A nervous FA Cup victory last time out did little to soothe supporters’ worries either, with Brighton narrowly surviving a penalty shootout scare against League Two Newport County. Follow all the action live below:
- MCI: Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko, Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Mahrez, Foden, Bernardo Silva
- BRI: Sanchez, Burn, Webster, White, Dunk, Bernardo, Veltman, Propper, Trossard, Mac Allister, Tau
27 mins: Good stuff from Mahrez who chips a pass into the far post. Gundogan keeps the ball alive and knocks it into the six-yard box. Foden is the closest City player to the ball but he’s beaten to it by Joel Veltman who takes no chances and boots it away.
