Man City has little trouble with surprising number 4 and is ready after half an hour.

Manchester City didn‘t have to go deep in the away game against the surprisingly high-performing Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday. The Seagulls started as number four of the Premier League at the home game with the reigning national champion, but were already put at an unbridgeable 0-3 backlog before rest.
City played another Champions League match against Club Brugge in midweek and started with Nathan Akรฉ, Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez on the bench among others. They soon saw that Brighton would be fine. Ilkay Gรผndogan tapped into 0-1 after Joรซl Veltman and his unsuccessfully appealed for an alleged offense against goalkeeper Robert Sรกnchez.

After half an hour of play, the game fell into a decisive fold. Jack Grealish was sent into the depths after a perfect counter and left the honor to Phil Foden: 0-2. Three minutes later it was Foden who found a hole in the short corner and also signed the 0-3. Brighton splatter a bit in the second half and goalkeeper Ederson had to love Pascal Gross and Leandro Trossard.

The Brazilian was passed in the final phase: Alexis Mac Allister made the 1-3 from the penalty point, but Manchester City was able to play the game quietly, saw substitute Mahrez make 1-4 deep in the extra time and comes back to two points from front-runner Chelsea, which was previously on the Won 7-0 of Norwich City on Saturday. Liverpool can report back to spot two on Sunday, but it will have to win the cracker against Manchester United first.
