Is Brighton vs Man City on UK TV? How to watch Premier League battle - date, KO time and live stream details

Manchester City will take on Brighton in their penultimate match of the 2022/23 Premier League season

Manchester City and Brighton are set to meet for their penultimate matches of the 2022/23 season with both teams having much to celebrate. Brighton have secured a spot in European football for the first time in their history following a 2-1 win over relegated Southampton while the Citizens were crowned Premier League champions for the third successive year.

Robert de Zerbi’s men have now guaranteed a top-seven finish but he has urged the squad to claim at least one point from their final two fixtures to ensure qualification for Europa League 2023/24. While taking on the Premier League champions may not be their answer, the Seagulls will face Aston Villa for the final fixture of the season.

Pep Guardiola, however, still has two big finals for which to prepare. Having secured a fifth Premier League title in six seasons, the Sky Blues will still hope to complete the terrific treble as they look ahead to next month’s FA Cup and Champions League finals.

Team news

Brighton are set to be without Solly March, Adama Lallana (both hamstrings) as well as Tariq Lamptey, Jakub Moder (knee) and Jeremy Sarmiento (ankle) but Adam Webster is now fit to return to the side having recovered from a muscle problem.

The Seagulls goalkeeper Robert Sanchez has sat out of the last three games and Jason Steele is set to continue between the sticks this evening and with De Zerbi keen to secure at least one more point for Europa League football next season, a strong side is expected to be named.

As for Manchester City, Nathan Ake is still the primary injury concern. He is edging closer to a comeback from a hamstring problem but Guardiola is unlikely to risk using him ahead of two finals next month.

Goalkeeper Ederson, defenders Ruben Dias and Johnstones and midfielders Rodri, Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin de Bruyne are all likely to receive recalls after being reduced to the subs bench for City’s match against Chelsea on Sunday.
