The match is planned to be held on Thursday (21/4/2022) starting at 02.00 in the morning WIB. Last week's elimination from the FA Cup semi-final has instilled a new sense of urgency among The Citizens. Manchester club players have a job to do: secure top spot.
The Citizens are still catching up with Liverpool at the top of the standings. An additional three points will be very meaningful for the team from Manchester.
Against Brighton, Manchester City are very favored. But make no mistake, the visitors also have the opportunity to be troublesome.
Despite occupying 10th place in the rankings, Brighton has been playing well recently. At least in the last two matches, Graham Potter's team remains unbeaten. Amazingly, two North London teams, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs, were arrested successively.
One Seagulls player from Thursday's game deserves special mention, as the statistics show. It is Leandro Trossard who has stood out the most in Brighton's last two matches.
Having scored two league goals for Brighton so far this term, the player now has six goals for the season.
Coach Graham Potter himself will have Trossard in the starting line-up for the game behind Mac Allister and Danny Wellbeck.
