It’s the biggest story in English football right now, with Man City being linked to a £50 million move for Alexis Sanchez. When does this transfer make sense?
The “brighton vs man city 3-2” is a football match that took place on the 16th of February 2019. Brighton beat Manchester City by three goals to two.
Manchester City overtook Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table after scoring three goals in the second half against Brighton.
After a disappointing first half in which City struggled to break down Graham Potter’s side, Kevin de Bruyne supplied the spark as City regained their one-point lead.
De Bruyne set up Riyad Mahrez for the opening and then delivered Bernardo Silva with the game-winning assist eight minutes from time.
In the meanwhile, when Mahrez identified the England player alone just beyond the box at a corner, Phil Foden required the help of a deflection to beat the Brighton goalie.
The goals eased the anxiety that had been building around Etihad Stadium, and City now know that they must win six more games to defend their championship, beginning with a home game against relegation-threatened Watford on Saturday.
The difference between De Bruyne and other players is De Bruyne.
Pep Guardiola compliments Manchester City’s ‘outstanding’ performance after a 3-0 win against Brighton.
Although De Bruyne’s name did not appear on the scoreboard, the standing ovation he got when he was substituted by Gabriel Jesus immediately after Bernardo’s goal spoke it all about the Belgian’s role.
Eight minutes after the restart, De Bruyne took direct action in response to rising displeasure in the supporters.
He went on a tearing run from within his own half, and his desire to make an impact drove him to keep going when he could have easily halted to earn free kicks twice.
He instead stayed on his feet and deflected a third challenge before passing the ball to Mahrez. The Algerian took advantage of a number of lucky deflections, the first of which gave him the chance to fire before a second deflected it beyond Robert Sanchez.
This was the Algerian’s 250th Premier League appearance, and he assisted Guardiola in earning City’s 250th victory, which he did 52 games faster than any other manager in English top-flight history.
After Foden doubled the hosts’ lead, De Bruyne again played a key role as Bernardo added a third, deftly flicking on Oleksandr Zinchenko’s pass after the Ukrainian – who had earlier received a warm reception on only his second home appearance since the Russian invasion of his homeland – had taken advantage of Brighton’s hesitation inside their own half.
Guardiola will want to keep De Bruyne as safe as possible for the rest of the season after his injury scare in the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Atletico Madrid.
The same could be said for central defender Ruben Dias, who returned at halftime after a seven-week layoff with a hamstring injury and seemed to brush off concerns from the bench that he had recurred.
Brighton’s tenacious scheme was eventually undone.
‘The superior team prevailed,’ says Seagulls manager Graham Potter after Manchester City beat Brighton 3-0.
Brighton’s poor record against City, which included eight losses in nine Premier League matches and no away victories in their whole existence, gave them little reason to be optimistic.
Potter, though, demonstrated what a team might achieve with a gameplan that players readily follow after recent fantastic victories over Tottenham and Arsenal.
A three-man defense, headed by Lewis Dunk with his usual authority, was strengthened by a further three in front of them, with little room in between for City’s superb playmakers to demonstrate their abilities.
True, offensive chances for the visitors were few – the closest they got in the first half was a Pascal Gross corner that landed into a dangerous position inside the six-yard box, where Aymeric Laporte kicked it away.
Their efforts, though, were yet another significant success for Potter, who has led Brighton to their best-ever result.
Unfortunately for the visitors, they were only able to hold off City for eight minutes of the second period, and then it was back to business.
