Brighton can leapfrog Manchester City with a repeat of last season’s win at the Amex but Graham Potter’s side are on an unfortunate down swing after two goalless draws. Pep Guardiola’s side are always the favourites owing to their embarrassment of riches to dismantle any opposition however they feel. Potter’s squad looks paper thin in comparison but his defence has been rock solid this season. A backs-to-the-wall thriller could be on the cards, and with it, the chance of an upset again for Brighton. Graham Searles
