Manchester City vs Brighton: How to watch on TV live stream, team news, lineups & prediction

Manchester City welcome Brighton to the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola's side have failed to score in their previous two matches and lost their first league game of the season against Liverpool last weekend, though remain second in the table.

Roberto De Zerbi lined up with the exact same XI which guided Graham Potter to three consecutive victories at the start of the season against Nottingham Forest in midweek. However, Brighton suffered a recurrence of the finishing woes which dominated much of Potter's reign and are yet to taste victory under the Italian.

Here's everything that you need to know about the upcoming meeting between this pairing.

Man City team news

Guardiola's vague assessment of John Stones' recovery from a hamstring problem gives the defender an outside chance of returning this weekend.

Kalvin Phillips is still recovering from a shoulder injury but Kyle Walker is optimistic about overcoming a groin complaint to feature in the World Cup - though his involvement this Saturday is highly unlikely.

Man City vs Brighton score prediction

"Brighton is always a good test," Guardiola likes to say before lining up against the south coast outfit. A sequence of three goalless games for the Seagulls coming into the contest doesn't exactly underline that assessment.

However, Brighton's performances during that run - coupled with the 3-3 draw earned against Liverpool on De Zerbi's debut - suggests that the reigning champions may be in for a tricky examination, even if they are likely to pass.

Prediction: Man City 2-1 Brighton
