FREE ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE SOCCER PICK MANCHESTER CITY VS BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION

Brighton & Hove Albion secured the full three points after upsetting Manchester United this past weekend. With this huge win they earned the right to compete next season in the Premier League. While this was a huge victory, they will have another chance to build on their recent win. The one difference for Brighton is they will be the away team, where they had their home fans behind them against Manchester United. Pascal Groß was the hero for Brighton against Man United and will hope to take advantage of any chance he is given in today’s match. If Brighton is going to win, they are going to have to keep the ball as much as possible. They only managed 32% of the possession against United, which will likely lead to a loss if they do the same against Man City.

Having already secured the Premier League title, Manchester City should still come out to play their best soccer. They will not want to be upset by the same team who just defeated their cross town rival. Having said that, this game could be a great opportunity to play some of their bench players to get them more playing time. Man City will likely control the possession all game, so they just need to be aware of any quick counter attacks Brighton might try. Leading the team in goals is Sergio Agüero, who was ruled out for the season a few weeks ago, so he could recover from an injury and prepare for the World Cup this summer. Even without Agüero, Man City should have no trouble taking care of business in the stadium they have only lost once in this year.
