  • HAALAND SCORES! Brighton are all over the place at the back, and the Norweigan takes advantage! It starts with Ederson, who pings a lovely ball upfield and Sanchez rushes out of his box. Haaland chests it past him, before nudging Webster out of the way and slotting his shot into the back of the empty net. 1-0 City!

  • HAALAND SCORES! He was made to wait a long time to take the penalty while Brighton argued their case, but it didn't faze him! It's a great spot-kick from the forward, who powerfully slots into the bottom right corner. Sanchez had barely shifted from his starting position before it hit the back of the net. 2-0 City!

  • TROSSARD PULLS ONE BACK! Laporte nods it to Akanji, and he gets caught on the ball by March. He links up well with Trossard, pulling it back to him on the edge of the box, and he rifles his shot into the near post. It flies under Ederson's arm and into the net. 2-1!

  • WHAT A GOAL! It's well worked down the left by City and Silva squares it to De Bruyne, who is hovering just outside the D. Estupinan tries to close him down but doesn't get there in time as he fires the shot over him and Sanchez into the back of the net. 3-1 City!
