Why you should back Manchester City

Phil Foden is a world-class midfielder who is in the midst of arguably the best season of his career. The 23-year-old has scored 14 goals in the Premier League this season, which ranks second on the team and is three more than his previous career high. He also has seven assists, which is a career-high, and is tied for second on the team.

In addition, the Citizens have dominated the head-to-head series against Brighton recently. Manchester City have won 11 of the last 13 Premier League meetings against the Seagulls. That includes a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture this season in Manchester.

Why you should back Brighton

The Seagulls will face a City team that is in the midst of a demanding stretch of games. On April 17, Manchester City played Real Madrid to a 1-1 draw in the second leg of their Champions League quarterfinal and failed to advance on penalties, losing 4-3. Three days later, the Citizens eked out a 1-0 win over Chelsea in an FA Cup semifinal. And then just two days after the game against Brighton, City will head to Nottingham Forest for another crucial EPL match.

In addition, the Seagulls have a capable goal scorer in João Pedro. The 22-year-old from Brazil leads the team and is tied for 27th in the league in goals with eight. Earlier this season in Europa League group stage play, he was the leading scorer with six goals in six games.
