After lifting the English Premier League trophy last weekend following their 0-0 draw against Huddersfield, Manchester City will now take on Brighton Hove Albion at the Etihad Stadium in what will be their penultimate match of the season. The champions will end the season on May 13th away at St Mary’s where they will take on Southampton. Brighton secured safety last weekend and will play against Man City knowing that they have nothing to lose, which could spell danger for the Citizens, following their lacklustre display against Huddersfield at the weekend. In this article, we will take a look at the MCI vs BHA Predicted Fantasy 11 or BHA vs MCI predicted fantasy 11, including the BHA Predicted Playing 11 and MCI Probable Playing 11. This will also give us a chance to look at the BHA vs MCI Squads. Given that this match is in mid-week, we will also need to talk briefly about the Brighton vs Manchester City Live Streaming and Brighton vs Manchester City Live Telecast India. At the end of the article, there is our Brighton vs Manchester City Prediction based on Brighton vs Manchester City Head to Head record of the past and current form.
BHA vs MCI Predicted Fantasy 11
For Manchester City to cross that magical 100 point mark in the ongoing EPL season, they will need to win both their final 2 matches following a very surprising draw against Huddersfield last weekend. BHA vs MCI Predicted Fantasy 11, which will include BHA Probable Playing 11 and MCI Predicted Playing 11 might see some surprise names on the team sheet, given that the title is already won and the World Cup is just days away, hence taking a risk on injury prone player will not be an intelligent call. Sergio Aguero, who opened the scoring during MCI’s 2-0 victory over Brighton earlier in the season is already ruled out for the remainder of the campaign, while Vincent Kompany is doubtful for this encounter and could even be completely omitted from the Man City squad to keep him fresh and fit for the Belgian national team. Mendy and Yaya Toure should get the nod to start in this match, given that they have hardly featured in the team’s football his season but are not fully fit and available.
Brighton’s away form this season has been far from ideal. They haven’t won an away league match since November, losing seven of their 11 games since then and failing to score in 8 of them. Brighton have an almost fully fit squad to choose from with only Steve Sidewell missing from the squad due to an injury. MCI Probable Playing 11 could see a couple youngsters feature from them as they look to give some valuable playing time to players who have been on the fringes of the senior team. BHA Predicted Playing 11 will be the strongest one possible, given that they could still finish around the mid-table, which will be a big achievement for the club.
MCI Probable Playing 11 (BHA vs MCI Predicted Fantasy 11) – Ederson, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Mendy, De Bruyne, Gundogan, B. Silva, Foden, Sterling, Jesus
BHA Probable Playing 11 (BHA vs MCI Predicted Fantasy 11) – Ryan, Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bong, Knockaert, Stephens, Propper, Izquierdo, Gross, Murray

Brighton vs Manchester City Head to Head

The first meeting between the two teams earlier in the season ended in a 2-0 win for the visitor’s thanks to an opening goal by Aguero and later an own goal. One thing to note prior to this match is that this is the first time Manchester City will be hosting Brighton at their home ground since 1988. Manchester City vs Brighton H2H record at the Citizens home ground is firmly in favour of the Blue. In the 7 matches that have taken between these two teams at Manchester City’s home ground, the home team has won an unprecedented 5 matches and drawn the other 2.
Across all competitions, Brighton vs Manchester City H2H or Manchester City vs Brighton Head to Head record is still dominated by Pep Guardiola’s club.

Brighton vs Manchester City Prediction
Given Brighton Hove Albion’ away form this season, Manchester City are clear favourites going into the match on Thursday. Brighton have scored the lowest number of away goals this season. The visitors have scored just 10 away league goals this season and the task will not get any easier at the Etihad Stadium for them, given that Man City have not conceded in 4 of the last 6 home games. Our Brighton vs Manchester City Tips will surely favour the home team of keeping a clean sheet. Manchester City vs Brighton Prediction could turn out to be a tricky affair, especially after the 0-0 draw Man City played against Huddersfield.
However, keeping in mind the MCI vs BHA Predicted Fantasy 11, BHA vs MCI Squads and Brighton vs Manchester City Head to Head record, our Brighton vs Manchester City Prediction is a 3-0 win for the 2017-2018 English Premier League Champions.
Manchester City vs Brighton Prediction – 3-0
