Manchester City puts Brighton aside

Brighton and Hove Albion are one of the biggest surprises in this season so far. The Seagulls collected 15 points in their first 8 matches of this season. Which brought them into fourth place. Not bad for a team that’s usually fighting against relegation. Manchester City got into second place, two points behind Chelsea. With Brighton playing at home, everybody was really interested in this match. Was Brighton going to give Manchester City a hard day at the office, or was Manchester City going to be too strong?

Answers in the first half

Every Premier League fan was excited about this match. How much could Brighton do to bring Manchester City in problems? The answers for this question early in the first half. Brighton couldn’t give Man City a real fight. Ilkay Gundogan opened the score early in the first half. Youngster Phil Foden scored 2 goals in quick succession after 30 minutes, lifting the score to 0-3. A score that was still on the scoreboard when both teams went back into the dressing room at the break. Manchester City dominated and Brighton wasn’t able to give them anything to think about.

Easy second half

Something we see quite often after a very entertaining first half, is a quite boring second half. Manchester City was content with their 3 goals lead, while Brighton and Hove Albion weren’t strong enough to do anything back. Until the 81st minute when Alexis Mac Allister scored a penalty kick for Brighton. Manchester City wanted to get their three goals lead back and it was Mahrez who eventually gave them the three goals lead late in the game. Thanks to his goal, Manchester City won with 1-4 against Brighton and Hove Albion. Now they can sit back and watch rivals Liverpool play Manchester United on Sunday.
