Brighton and Hove Albion

Manchester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion Betting Tips: Form Guide

Manchester City Continue To Stun The Football World

What is left to say about Manchester City’s performances this year that hasn’t already been said? While not unbeatable, they’ve had an absolutely fantastic 2018, culminating in a 100 point Premier League season.

They look to match that accomplishment this season and have looked impressive thus far. They kicked off with a solid 2-0 win over Arsenal and a comprehensive 6-1 victory over Huddersfield. Only a surprise 1-1 draw with Wolves has slowed them down. They followed this with three straight victories and only conceded a single goal during the process, beating Newcastle 2-1 in a surprisingly close match, before breezing through Fulham and Cardiff, which went 3-0 and 5-0 respectively.

Outside of the league, they’ve recently lost to Liverpool and Lyon, which both went 2-1 against their favour, showing that they do have vulnerabilities.

Manchester City aren’t quite a perfect side, however, they remain one of the best teams in the world and one of the best the Premier League has ever seen. Few Manchester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion betting tips would advise putting money against them, and it’s easy to see why.

Brighton & Hove Albion’s Shock Win Hasn’t Had A Lasting Impact

For a team adjusting to promotion, Brighton did well last season. Now they’ve settled in, can they become a threat to the top spots?

So far this season, with the exception of one obvious anomaly, that doesn’t look likely any time soon, as is clearly reflected in them being almost written off in many Manchester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion match previews. Take their opening match, for example, which saw them lose 2-0 to their former table position neighbours Watford.

They then shocked the world, beating Manchester United 3-2 in an almost unthinkable result. On paper, that might seem like a huge turning point for the side. However, this was as much due to a shockingly poor performance by United as a good performance by Brighton.

After this, there was a respectable but ultimately losing 1-0 effort against Liverpool, in which they were once again the beneficiaries of a poor performance by a big team. Back-to-back draws against Fulham and Southampton – which both went 2-2 – and a 2-1 loss to a struggling Spurs finally brought them back to reality. Brighton have a lot to be proud of, but the truth is they remain a step behind the best the Premier League has to offer.

Manchester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion Preview: Recent Meetings

It will come as no surprise, considering their differing fortunes over the last decade, that there aren’t too many head-to-head examples relevant when determining Manchester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion betting tips for today. The results are also no surprise either.

They met twice last season and that is the only time they’ve faced one another for almost a decade – the gap before that stretches between 2008 and 1989. As for last season, Manchester City handily bested Brighton twice, beating them 2-0 in 2017 and 3-1 in 2018. The only question for Brighton fans, realistic about their prospects in this match, is whether their team has improved enough since then to make this match different.

Their last sniff of victory came in that 2008 match when they went 2-2, but in football terms, that’s a lifetime ago. There’s no doubt about it, Manchester City have a clear advantage here as well.

Manchester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion Prediction: Man City Dominate

It’s always worth mentioning that, in the world of football, you never know what is around the corner: this season alone, we’ve seen plenty of twists and turns. Brighton themselves were the culprits behind one of these upsets with that truly shocking victory over Manchester United. It left many fans hoping for a brave new dawn for the team – after all, if they can beat United, why not City? Why not anyone else?

However, the reality is quite a bit colder than that. Brighton likely would not have won that day if Manchester United were anywhere near the top of their game. Even their losses against Liverpool and Spurs saw them fail against two top teams not firing on all cylinders. And that seems unlikely to be the case with Manchester City, who rarely bring anything but their best.  

Brighton winning is certainly a possibility, but when you consider all the factors we’ve discussed – performance, results, head-to-head history – it seems very unlikely. Therefore, our Manchester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion prediction is that the home side win to continue their domination of the league.
