  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! GUNDOGAN CONVERTS FROM CLOSE RANGE! 1-0 CITY!! Sanchez commits a howler at the back as drops a deflected strike from Foden. Silva hooks it into the path of Gundogan, who bundles the ball home from six yards into an empty net. Not a great moment for the Brighton keeper.

  • GOAL!!! FODEN SCORES AFTER A RAPID BREAK!!! 2-0 CITY!!!! The visitors notch a second goal through a brilliant counter that Foden finishes on his left boot. Cucurella gives the ball away in midfield and it allows Silva to release Grealish down the left flank. He bursts forward into the box before spotting the run of Foden. The England man produces a fine cutback for his team-mate to finish on the slide under duress from Burn.

  • GOAL!!! FODEN DEFLECTS JESUS' STRIKE HOME !!! 3-0 CITY!! The visitors take complete control as Jesus' strike deflects off Foden and beats Sanchez, although the keeper should save it. Jesus starts the incisive break into the box as he finds Grealish in space. Sanchez blocks the effort of the England man, but Jesus pounces on the rebound. He steers a left-footed effort towards goal that deflects off Foden and even though Sanchez gets a hand to it, he cannot prevent the ball finding the left corner. Another poor moment from the Spaniard.

  • GOAL!! MAC ALLISTER CONVERTS AND IT'S 3-1!1 Brighton have a goal back as Mac Allister fires his kick through the hands of Ederson into the top-right corner. The midfielder goes for power and has just enough to break through the palms of the City keeper to find the net. Brighton have deserved a consolation for their second-half performance.
