Brighton and Hove Albion host Manchester City in the Premier League today.

The Seagulls are still looking over their shoulders at the bottom of the table and will want one or two more points to make absolutely sure of safety.

City have very little left to play for with second place all but secured.

They'll still want to finish strong, however, with crunch FA Cup and Champions League matches still to come.

What’s the team news?

The hosts will again be without Jose Izquierdo and Steven Alzate. Leandro Trossard scored last time out and should start.

Kevin De Bruyne was City's biggest concern coming in but trained on Friday and should play. Benjamin Mendy is also nursing a knock.

Brighton: Ryan, Lamptey, Webster, Dunk, Burn, Propper, Stephens, Bissouma, Mac Allister, Maupay, Trossard

Prediction

City's away record has been poor of late but it still takes a lot to imagine them not getting a handsome win tonight. Brighton 0-3 Manchester City
