EPL

Manchester City 3-0 Brighton

The game finishes 3-0 for Manchester City as they cruise to a comfortable victory. It didn’t always look like it would end that way, though, as the teams went into the break goalless.

De Bruyne went close after 26 minutes when he arrowed a shot from range just past the post.

Silva also saw a shot saved by Sanchez before Gundogan couldn’t punish a Dunk mistake.

The Brighton resistance was finally broken on 53 minutes when De Bruyne could nudge the ball to Mahrez, who sidefooted home via a deflection off Dunk.

City added a second on 65 minutes after Mahrez played the ball to Foden from a corner.

Foden let fly from a distance and saw his shot deflect off Mwepu, which wrong-footed Sanchez and sent the ball into the back of the net.

Silva rounded it off late when a mix-up in the Seagulls’ defence ended with De Bruyne flicking the ball to Silva, who lashed home and killed the game off.

Starting lineup:

MANCHESTER CITY (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Joao Cancelo, Aymeric Laporte, John Stones, Nathan Ake; Ilkay Gundogan, Rodrigo; Riyad Mahrez, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva; Phil Foden.

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION (3-4-1-2): Robert Sanchez; Lewis Dunk, Joel Veltman, Marc Cucurella; Solly March, Moises Caicedo, Pascal Gross, Tariq Lamptey; Alexis Mac Allister; Danny Welbeck, Enock Mwepu.

Goals:

The city takes the lead!!! Mahrez is the scorer, as De Bruyne lays the ball off to him via a couple of defections after a great run. The Algerian winger then sidefoots the ball into the back of the net, despite Dunk’s last-ditch efforts, and it’s 1-0 to the hosts.

It’s 2-0!!! A corner ends with Foden having the ball, and the youngster lets fly from 30 yards out. But, before nestling into the bottom corner, the shot deflects off Mwepu and completely wrongfoots Sanchez.

Silva makes it three!!! A poor kick from Sanchez ends up with De Bruyne flicking the ball to Silva, whose left-footed effort flies past Sanchez into the back of the net to make it 3-0.

So, what’s next?

The important three points for the Citizens mean that they move back into the top spot above Liverpool as they wrestle back control of the title race.

They will host relegation-threatened Watford next and will surely fancy their chances of adding another victory.

Defeat for the visitors means that their winning run has ended, and they drop a place to 10th.

Meanwhile, They will play Southampton next at the Amex Stadium as they look to get back in the winning column.
