Brighton VS Manchester City Live Football Score 18 May 2021
Brighton & Hove Albion take on champions Manchester City in the Premier League on Tuesday, with the Citizens looking to build momentum ahead of their Champions League final clash against Chelsea towards the end of May. Brighton, meanwhile, have already secured their safety for a fourth successive season, so they are simply aiming to finish as high in the table as they possibly can.
Having finished 15th twice and 17th once in their three full seasons in the Premier League, Graham Potter’s side require a shock win against Man City on Tuesday to still be able to secure a record-high finish in England’s top flight.
Had the Seagulls held onto their 1-0 lead against West Ham United on Saturday, that would not have been the case, but Said Benrahma’s late equaliser meant Brighton remain in 17th place in the table heading into Tuesday’s fixture.
Danny Welbeck looked to have scored an 84th-minute winner during a cagey encounter at the Amex Stadium, with the England striker racing in behind and coolly dinking the ball over the onrushing Lukasz Fabianski.
However, Benrahma showed Hammers’ fans what he is capable of by picking up the ball outside of the area and delightfully bending the ball around Robert Sanchez to score his first ever Premier League goal, and salvage a point for his side in the process.
