Man City predicted line-up against Brighton: five changes expected




Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is expected to make up to five changes in the team’s line-up for the upcoming match against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Following a strong line-up in the recent FA Cup semi-final win against Chelsea, Guardiola may rotate the squad to maintain fitness levels for the remaining games.

The predicted line-up includes Ederson replacing Stefan Ortega in goal. At right-back, 19-year-old Rico Lewis may start, allowing Kyle Walker to rest. John Stones is expected to play at center-back alongside Ruben Dias, while Nathan Ake retains his position at left-back.


In midfield, Rodri is likely to continue as he is crucial to the team. Mateo Kovacic may join him in midfield, as Phil Foden was reportedly not in training ahead of the match. Kevin De Bruyne is set to maintain his place in the starting eleven.

Up front, Julian Alvarez could lead the line in the absence of Erling Haaland, who was also not seen in training. Bernardo Silva is expected to keep his spot on the right wing, while Jeremy Doku may replace Jack Grealish on the left wing.

Overall, Manchester City’s predicted line-up against Brighton consists of Ederson, Lewis, Stones, Dias, Ake, Rodri, Kovacic, De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Alvarez, and Doku. This rotation aims to ensure freshness in the team for the upcoming challenges.
