Manchester City have moved up to second in the Premier League as Pep Guardiola’s side overpowered Brighton with a 4-1 win at the AMEX.
A devastating opening 45 minutes did the damage for Manchester City as Guardiola’s charges keep up the pressure on their title rivals with a victory against Brighton.
And that set the tone for City before the whistle as Phil Foden slid in to finish Jack Grealish’s lay off before the England star deflected home Jesus’ strike to make it 3-0 before the break.
But all credit to Brighton as they refused to go quietly in the second 45, as Ederson kept out Leandro Trossard, before the Brazilian tangled with Enock Mpewu inside the box.
Alexis MacAllister stepped up to bury one from the spot, but any chance of a Brighton response was firmly put out in added time as Foden fed in Riyad Mahrez to slam home an emphatic fourth.
