Team News

Brighton
Brighton defender Adam Webster has an "outside chance" of being passed fit for this encounter, but Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate remain absent for the Seagulls.

Yves Bissouma ought to be pushing for a recall to the side after shaking off a minor issue to make the bench against Norwich, while Tariq Lamptey replaced Joel Veltman after 59 minutes last time out and will hope to force his way back into the side here.

Despite a lack of ruthlessness against Norwich, Potter is unlikely to consider altering the Neal Maupay-Leandro Trossard connection in the final third.
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; Dunk, Duffy, Burn; Veltman, Gross, Bissouma, Lallana, Cucurella; Maupay, Trossard

Manchester City
Meanwhile, striker Ferran Torres remains City's only injury absentee as he recovers from his foot fracture, but Guardiola otherwise has bountiful options for rotation on the South Coast.

John Stones remains a slight doubt after missing the Brugge win due to personal reasons, though, and Guardiola may elect to save the bulk of his changes for their midweek EFL Cup battle with West Ham United.

Phil Foden can look forward to another start at the forefront of the attack if that is the case, but Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan will hope to force their way back into the XI regardless.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Foden, Grealish

Prediction: Brighton & Hove Albion 0-2 Manchester City
