Man City Team News: Star defender a major doubt for Brighton clash while Gundogan expected to retain spot in starting XI

Manchester City will be looking to continue their winning run of form when they take on Brighton.

The clash takes place on Saturday at the Etihad stadium while kick-off is scheduled for 15:00 (GMT).

City registered a comfortable 3-0 win over Oxford United in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday and have dropped just two points in the league this season.

Pep Guardiola’s side knows a win against Brighton could take them to the top of the league if Liverpool drop points against Chelsea.

Brighton meanwhile are without a victory since defeating Manchester United back in August.
