Having dented both Arsenal and Tottenham’s top four hopes, Brighton will be out to scupper Manchester City’s title ambitions as the pair meet in the Premier League this evening.

Leandro Trossard’s late winner at Tottenham on Saturday added to the Seagulls run of at least avoiding defeat away to five of the league’s top seven clubs this season - a tally they can add to at the Etihad this week.

City come into the game knowing they have no margin for error over Liverpool, who climbed to the top of the league following their 4-0 demolition of Manchester United on Tuesday.

The recent draw between the title rivals was followed by a thrilling 3-2 win for Jurgen Klopp’s team in the FA Cup semi-final, leaving Pep Guardiola with only the domestic title and Champions League to chase.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the game...
