TIP OF THE DAY: Brighton – Manchester City: The citizens hold everything in their hands, a new title in sight!

On Thursday, the selection is somewhat weaker than usual, and this time we have analyzed the duel between Brighton and Manchester City, which is also the last match of the 34th round of the English Premier League. The start of the match between these two teams is scheduled for 9 PM.

Brighton: Very poor performances lately!

From a team that lingered in the lower leagues for years, in a very short time we have come to the point where Brighton is slowly but surely beginning to belong to the cream of English football, all thanks to the excellent results this team has achieved in the last few seasons. The popular Seagulls played quite well last season too, after the pupils of Roberto De Zerbi, who is doing a great job on the bench of this team, eventually took an excellent sixth place in the table, with five points less than fifth-placed Liverpool. As is well known, this sixth position in the world’s top league brings qualification for the Europa League, and it must be mentioned that this was the team’s first participation in Europe’s second highest club competition.

There, this team managed to advance to the knockout phase without major issues, but the English representative was smoothly eliminated by Roma, and everything was known after the first match in Rome which De Rossi’s pupils won by a score of 4:0. The general impression about the Seagulls’ performance in the Premier League is solid, with the observation that Brighton is not playing as well as they did last season. At this moment, Roberto De Zerbi’s men are in the middle of the table, more precisely in eleventh position, and as things stand, it is likely that we will not see this team in European competitions next season.

Lately, Brighton has been facing a lot of problems, so this team has not managed to win any of their last four league matches, during which the Seagulls have suffered two defeats and two draws. In the last round, this team drew in an away match against Burnley, a match against a team desperately fighting for survival, which ended with a score of 1:1. As for performances on home turf, Brighton has so far played seventeen matches at their stadium and achieved seven wins, six draws, and only two losses, and we will see if this record worsens after the duel against Manchester City, who desperately need points in their fight for the English championship title.

Manchester City: The Citizens hold everything in their hands!

Unfortunately, City will not manage to defend their European Champions title, as the team was recently eliminated by Real Madrid in the quarterfinals following a poor penalty shootout performance. The “big-eared” trophy was indeed the primary goal of this club, however, the general impression is that the popular Citizens are playing at a very high level this season. Primarily, concerning the English Premier League, Pep Guardiola’s pupils currently sit in third place on the table, four points behind the leader Arsenal. However, City has two games in hand compared to the table leader, and if the Citizens win both outstanding matches, they will move to the first position on the table with a two-point advantage over the Gunners. It is well known that for years Manchester City’s players have performed phenomenally in the final phase of the championship, as best seen last season when the team managed to overtake Arsenal, who at one point in the first part of the championship had even a double-digit point lead.

Certainly, the Champions League elimination was a tough blow for everyone in the club, however, afterwards, the players of the current English champions showed character and celebrated in the FA Cup semifinal at Wembley against Chelsea, where the match ended with a 1:0 result, and the only goal was scored by Bernardo Silva who thus redeemed himself to the Citizens fans for the poorly executed penalty in the match against Real Madrid. The opponent in the FA Cup final will be city rival Manchester United, and City is certainly the big favorite in that duel. In the last five matches of this year’s edition of the top tier of English football, Pep Guardiola’s pupils achieved three victories and two draws, interestingly against the main competitors in the fight for the English championship title.

In the last round, City played a fantastic match at home against Luton, and that duel ended with a 5:1 score. Before that, the Citizens also defeated Crystal Palace away with a score of 4:2. So far, the current English champions have played fifteen away matches and achieved ten victories, two draws, and three losses, which currently makes City the second-best away team in the Premier League, behind Arsenal, which has earned four more points away.
