Man City vs Brighton: FA Cup semi-final exclusively on ESPN+ in USA on April 6, 2019

April 5, 2019 By Ali M.
In our match preview informing you how to watch Man City's FA Cup semi-final clash with Brighton, we compare team statistics and analyze both teams’ head-to-head record.

What is the form of Man City compared to Brighton?

Form favors the home side. Man City has won their last 13 games in all competitions and has suffered only one loss in their last 22 games in all competitions. That sole defeat came against Newcastle in the league while the remaining 21 games all ended in victories.

As for Brighton, they head into this fixture on the back of a two-game losing streak, having lost to Southampton and most recently Chelsea. This means they have only won half of their last six games in all competitions, one being the FA Cup quarter-final penalty shootout triumph against Millwall that booked their ticket to this semi-final clash.

Man City vs Brighton head-to-head record

The Citizens boast the better overall head-to-head record, but in their encounters in the FA Cup, things are split even. Both sides have one win each, with the Seagulls triumphing in their most recent cup encounter.

Games played: 20

Man City wins: 11

Brighton wins: 5

Draws: 4

Who's injured/suspended for Man City vs Brighton?

All eyes will be on Sergio Aguero and whether the Argentine will recover in time for this semi-final showdown. The Argentine picked up a muscle injury in the win over Fulham and thus sat out the victory over Cardiff but stands a chance of recovering in time.

However, Kun might not be risked despite his excellent FA Cup record as their Champions League clash with Tottenham is right around the corner. Oleksandr Zinchenko picked up a knock in the midweek win over the Bluebirds, which could see Danilo return. This tie comes too early for Mendy.

Chris Hughton has a few concerns of his own, as they will be without Pascal Gross while Glenn Murray could return to the starting lineup for this tie. Locadia and March are likely to be fit for the weekend semi-final clash.

Man City vs Brighton - key stats

  • Man City has played in Wembley three times this season already and is yet to lose (W2, D1).

  • With 19 goals, Guardiola's side is the highest-scoring team in the FA Cup this season and could become the first team to net 20 times in a single campaign since Chelsea in 2011-12.

  • Brighton has only one win in their last 11 encounters with the Citizens and that was way back in April 1989.

  • The Seagulls will look to make it to the FA Cup final for the second time, having beaten Man City en route to the ultimate game in their last appearance.
