Man City To Ease To A Comfortable Opening Day Win At Brighton

Manchester City have splashed the cash during the summer as they bid to improve on last season's third-place finish in the Premier League and they begin the new 2017/18 campaign with a trip to newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday evening...

  • This is the first Brighton v Man City fixture since the Seagulls beat City on penalties in the 2008 League Cup
  • Nine of City's twelve away wins last season came by a margin of two goals or bigger
  • City were the top away scorers in 2016/17 with 43 goals

City Favourites

Pep Guardiola has signed Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva, Danilo and Ederson during the summer transfer window and, with the exception of Mendy who is injured, they will all be looking to make an immediate impression at The Amex Stadium.

It bodes well that the Citizens have won their past six opening day fixtures in the top-flight and they are 1/3 for victory this weekend (bet 365).

City's record in away games against teams outside of the top-seven was very impressive last term as they won eleven, drew one and lost one, scoring an eye-watering 38 goals in the process.

They come up against a Brighton team that has signed Mat Ryan, Pascal Gross, Davy Propper and Jose Izquierdo since securing promotion by finishing second in the Championship, with Chris Hughton's men 11/1 to cause an almighty upset.
Match Odds:

Bank On A Comfortable Win For City

Hughton's job isn't made easy on Saturday though as Anthony Knockaert is injured and it is difficult to see the Seagulls keeping City at bay,

Guardiola's side were the top scorers away from home in the Premier League with 43 goals in 2016/17 and it is worth noting that nine of their twelve away wins came via a margin of two goals or bigger, with Ladbrokes going 10/11 for City to win with a -1 goal handicap.

Sergio Aguero could be the man to set the Citizens on their way to victory and he is 16/5 to score first (Paddy Power) having previously scored in five of his six opening day appearances in the English top-flight.
