Team News:

Manchester City
City's star man Sergio Aguero has scored every time he has faced Brighton in the Premier League, but the Argentine will miss out here after coming into contact with a COVID-positive individual.

Ederson was fit enough to make the bench against Birmingham and will displace Zack Steffen here, while Ferran Torres should be available after recovering from coronavirus.

However, Aymeric Laporte and Nathan Ake both remain sidelined through injury, and there is a question mark over Raheem Sterling's involvement after he missed out the FA Cup win due to a lack of match fitness, but he should make the first XI here.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Mendy; Rodri, Gundogan; Silva, De Bruyne, Sterling; Jesus

Brighton's ever-growing absentee list welcomes midfield lynchpin Yves Bissouma, who is suspended due to an accumulation of yellow cards, so Davy Propper is set for a swift recall to the engine room.

Danny Welbeck, Aaron Connolly and Adam Lallana all missed the trip to Rodney Parade and the trio will play no part in this one, while it is still too soon for Tariq Lamptey to return to action.

Steele's shootout heroics will probably not be enough to see him keep his place in goal over Robert Sanchez, while Leandro Trossard will be aiming to put his penalty miss behind him as he earns a recall to the attack.
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; Webster, Dunk, Burn; Veltman, Propper, White, March; Trossard, Mac Allister; Maupay
Brighton & Hove Albion Premier League form: LDDDLD
Brighton & Hove Albion form (all competitions): DDDLDW

Prediction: Manchester City 3-0 Brighton & Hove Albion
