Market: Manchester City to score over 2.5 goals
Odds: 21/20 @ 888sport
Hoping to continue on their free-scoring run of form, Manchester City will face off against Brighton from behind closed doors on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Brighton may have managed to pull themselves away from the drop zone, they have shown some continued issues on home soil. In their 34 Premier League matches this year, they have recorded eight wins, 12 draws, and 14 defeats, scoring 36 and conceding 47 in return. With a points tally of 36, they open the weekend fixtures in 15th and holding an eight-point buffer over the relegation zone. As for their recent run of results, Brighton have won just one of their last four top-flight matchups and it should also be noted that they have managed to win just one of their previous eight home matchups across all formats. More worrying, Saturday’s hosts have conceded a trio of goals in back-to-back home defeats.
As for the visitors, while Manchester City might have their attention elsewhere, they have enjoyed a free-scoring run of form since returning to action. In their 34 Premier League matches this season, they have recorded 22 wins, three draws, and nine defeats, scoring 86 and conceding 34 in return. With a points tally of 69, the Sky Blues still sit second in the standings and have all but secured another Champions League finish. As for their recent run of results, putting five past Newcastle earlier in the week, Saturday’s guests have won three of their last four Premier League matchups, scoring nine goals in their last three appearances.
