Man City v Albion

PREMIER LEAGUE

Venue:
Etihad Stadium
Date: Saturday 21st October 2023
Kick-off: 15:00 BST
Referee: Robert Jones
Assistants: Ian Hussin, Steven Meredith
Fourth Official: Jeremy Simpson

TEAM NEWS

Manchester City midfielder Rodri returns after being banned for their past three domestic matches.


Fit-again defender John Stones played an hour for England against Italy on Tuesday and will hope to start his first league game of the season.

Brighton's James Milner is fit to face his former club after a month out with a muscle issue.

Karou Mitoma is expected to play despite withdrawing from international duty with Japan through illness.

Julio Enciso, Pervis Estupinan, Tariq Lamptey and Jakub Moder remain unavailable, although the latter has resumed training after 18 months on the sidelines because of knee problems.

MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head

  • Brighton have never won a league game away to Manchester City (D2, L11) and have lost on their last nine visits by an aggregate score of 24-3.
  • City have won 10 of the 12 Premier League meetings, only dropping points in away matches in 2021 and 2023 which came after they had secured the league title.
Man City
  • City are in danger of losing three consecutive league games for the first time since Pep Guardiola took charge. They last did so in March 2016 under Manuel Pellegrini.
  • They have won 20 straight home matches in league and cup, one shy of an outright record by a Premier League side in all competitions. Manchester United also won 20 in a row between December 2010 and September 2011.
  • City are unbeaten in the past 35 competitive fixtures in which Rodri has played.
  • Phil Foden has scored in all five of his Premier League starts against Brighton, netting six goals in total.
  • Erling Haaland, who has attempted one shot in City's last two league games, is at risk of going three consecutive Premier League appearances without a goal for the first time.
  • Julian Alvarez has netted 16 goals in 16 home starts for Manchester City in all competitions.
Albion
  • The Seagulls have both scored and conceded in each of their past 12 top-flight matches and have netted in a club record 17 consecutive away league games.
  • They are the Premier League's top scorers this season, although only the bottom three have let in more goals.
  • Brighton's only victory in their 20 top-flight fixtures versus the reigning champions was 1-0 against Liverpool in February 2021 (D4, L15).
  • Albion substitutes have scored a Premier League-high six goals this season.
  • Danny Welbeck has failed to score in any of his 17 Premier League appearances against Manchester City.

They always appear at 3am on the dot. I wondered if there is a timer thingy that puts them out the same each week.
I was wondering the same thing, and then @Dick Head replied which probably means he is exceptionally dedicated to this.
I'm always impressed with the formatting of the post.

I really cba with all that, let alone the 3am thingy.
Impressive.

Thanks @Dick Head your work is much appreciated.
Even though we're loose.

Crickey, that is not a confidence inspiring list of stats.
  • Brighton have never won a league game away to Manchester City (D2, L11) and have lost on their last nine visits by an aggregate score of 24-3.
  • City are unbeaten in the past 35 competitive fixtures in which Rodri has played.
