Chris Hughton’s Brighton and Hove Albion are away at the Etihad this Saturday, facing the champions, Manchester City.

The Seagulls have only won one match this season, although that was against City’s main rivals, Manchester United, back in August.

They currently sit in 13th position with five points from six games. Pep Guardiola’s side, meanwhile, are in second with 16 points.
