Brighton v Manchester City. Betting tips, odds & prediction for EPL

Manchester City and Josep Guardiola are coming in season 2017/2018 with the lowest bookies price 2.70 to win the EPL title. The Spaniard had released some veteran players from the Citizen’s squad and added some quality at the flanks of defense. But is it enough to win the first piece of Silverware at the inhospitable Foggy Albion? There will be no correct answer after the first matchday against Brighton as the Citizens have to get an easy victory at 12 of August.

Betting Tip: Brighton had promoted to the EPL in the first time of the club’s history

Brighton is the same name as Swansea or Bournemouth was in the first year of their EPL season. The team managed by experienced boss Chris Hughton doesn’t have big names in his squad but has a strong spirit that always helped in Championship. The Seagulls don’t spend much money at the transfer market this summer and Hughton will base his football on the guys that have won the promotion. The new signings are Pascal Gross form Ingolstadt, Davy Proper form PSV (a record transfer fee for Brighton) and Marcus Suttner also form Ingolstadt.

Betting Tip: Brighton had one of the strongest defensive lines in Championship with conceding 40 goals in 48 games, less than a goal per match

Manchester City is a more interesting side in this encounter against Brighton at 12 of August. The Citizens are three seasons without a EPL title at the moment and one more year will cost the job for Guardiola. The Spaniard has a huge transfer campaign this summer. Danilo from Real Madrid, Kyle Walker from Tottenham (a record fee for a defender in EPL) and Banjamin Mandy from Monaco are bought to close the defensive flanks positions. Bernardo Silva from Monaco will add creativity in the middle while Ederson is the first option in the Citizen’s net. The vital problem for Manchester City is still the center of defense. Vincent Kompany is healthy at the moment but no one can guarantee he will not get an injury in the near future. This will left the pair Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones who have a lot of mistakes in the last season.

Betting Tip: Manchester City had lost just one friendly match this summer with three victories in last three games (3W, 0D, 1L)

There were 8 games in the last season when Manchester had started as a clear favourite with a price below 1.50. In these games the Citizens have failed to win just once (2-2 with Middlesbrough). At the moment Bet365 provides the following odds for Brighton v Manchester City encounter:
