Brighton host Manchester City on Saturday evening in the Premier League, a meeting of two clubs in the top four – one rather more surprising than the other at this stage. The Seagulls have impressed and lost just once so far in the league, though face a big task to keep the reigning champions at bay. Pep Guardiola’s outfit are third, just above their hosts, and have the top flight’s joint-best defensive record at this stage.

City were in action in midweek in the Champions League and produced what the manager termed one of their best European performances of his tenure, thrashing Club Brugge and scoring five goals in the process. Prior to that it was an easy win over Burnley in the league last week, making it seven unbeaten in that competition since the opening day of the campaign.

The two managers did clash last season, but Graham Potter says he apologised and doesn’t expect it to be a factor when they meet again, hoping for a “cuddle” from his opposite number. Follow all the live updates and action as Brighton host Manchester City below:

Half-time: Brighton 0 – 3 Man City

45+2 mins: The difference between the skill levels on display has been huge. Manchester City have been sensational over that 45 minutes and in contrast Brighton are putting in one of their worst performances of the year.

Graham Potter will be very disappointed with that opening half. His team let Man City run rampant.

43 mins: Rodri gives the ball away to Gross who plays it across to Burn. He knocks it into March who shimmies to his right and drills one from just outside the box. Ederson gets across and blocks the shot, the ball loops into the air and the City goalkeeper is able to recover it before it goes out of play.

41 mins: Solly March swings a corner ball into the penalty area but his cross sails over everyone and is collected by Jesus. He flicks the ball over a defender and threatens to sweep up the pitch before deciding to pass it to Cancelo who loses the ball to a sliding Adam Lallana.

38 mins: Phil Foden has been awarded the third goal as well due to the deflection so he’s got himself a brace already. Not a bad trip to the seaside so far for the Englishman.

Brighton 0 – 3 Man City

35 mins: It thought the game would be a lot closer than this but Brighton only have themselves to blame. Two of the three goals have come from sloppy passes and them seem so open at the back. There are gaps everywhere for City to exploit.

GOAL! Brighton 0 – 3 Man City (Foden, 31’)⚽️

He fires a pass over to Grealish who brings it down and sends a shot towards the near post. Sanchez keeps it out but the rebound falls to Jesus who blasts it at the goalkeeper, the shot hits Foden and deflects into the back of the net.

GOAL! Brighton 0 – 2 Man City (Foden, 28’)⚽️

28 mins: City are lethal on the counter! Cucurella loses misplaces a pass and gives the ball to Bernardo Silva. He turns towards goal and slots a delightful pass up for Grealish. Grealish dribbles into the area, draws out the goalkeeper and then squares a pass to Foden. Foden and Burn both go for the ball, initially it looks as though Foden clipped it into the back of the net but a replay shows it may have come off Burn. Either way it’s another goal for Man City.

Brighton 0 – 1 Man City

26 mins: Kyle Walker is booked for clipping the heels of Marc Cucurella and stopping a Brighton attack from developing.

Bernardo Silva is given the ball out on the right wing and spies Foden making a run into the box. A threaded diagonal pass it meant to pick of the youngster but Sanchez reads the play and sprints off his line to scoop up the loose ball before Foden can reach it.
