Manchester City will look to bounce back from their FA Cup defeat to Liverpool by staying in front in the Premier League title race when they host Brighton on Wednesday.

City were poor during the first half of Saturday's semi-final exit, going 3-0 down before half time. They were ultimately beaten 3-2 and could go into Wednesday's clash second in the top flight table as Liverpool host Manchester United on Tuesday.

Brighton are looking for a third successive high profile scalp having arrested a shocking run of form with surprise wins over Arsenal and Tottenham.

Manchester City team news

Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan both started Saturday's defeat on the bench but one may start this one.

Ruben Dias may make his long-awaited return, having been an unused substitute in City's last two matches, but Kyle Walker may not feature.


Brighton team news

Yves Bissouma was brilliant in the wins over Arsenal and Spurs but will now serve a two-game suspension for picking up ten bookings in the league this season.

Steven Alzate is a potential replacement, but he missed the game at Tottenham due to illness and may not be fit. Jakub Moder is a long-term absentee.


Manchester City vs Brighton score prediction

Their hopes of a treble are over, but City can still retain their Premier League crown and go for glory in Europe, making it essential that they bounce back against Brighton.

Graham Potter's Seagulls have been disciplined and clinical in their back-to-back wins in north London, though with no Bissouma they may struggle in midfield.

Fitness problems looked evident in City's defeat to Liverpool, but they should have enough to get over the line against an in-form Brighton.

Prediction: Manchester City 2-0 Brighton
