Brighton take on Manchester City at the Amex Stadium in the Premier League on Tuesday night.
Pep Guardiola’s City side have already been crowned Champions for the 2020/21 campaign, their 3rd league title in the last 4 top flight seasons.
Spirits have been high over the weekend, with photos and videos emerging on social media on Sunday showing manager Pep Guardiola puffing on a Cuban cigar and singing along to Oasis songs.
It seems as if City used their match-free weekend to let their hair down – it remains to be seen if the intensity levels are at their usual high standard on the South Coast on Tuesday.
Brighton welcome the league winners sitting 17th place in the Premier League table, comfortable in the knowledge they will be a top flight team once again next season.
With Fulham, West Brom and Sheffield United already confirmed as relegated, the Seagulls can feel slightly more relaxed about their remaining games.
However, questions have been asked of Albion’s inability to score goals and difficulties in defending – something Graham Potter will be keen to improve on to avoid any such relegation scare next term.
In terms of team news, Tariq Lamptey continues to be a miss for Brighton and will be out for the rest of the season, as will Solly March.
Joel Veltman and Davy Propper could also miss out against Manchester City due to knocks.
For Pep Guardiola, his City side have had a relatively clean bill of health for a while now, with only Kevin De Bruyne a doubt for the game with the Seagulls.
Sergio Aguero wasn’t in the matchday squad against Newcastle, but may be given game time against Brighton with only 3 games of his City career remaining.
Brighton v Manchester City is a 7pm kick off on Tuesday 18th May.
