City’s only goal was scored by Phil Foden in the 44th minute, with a ground shot from the edge of the penalty area, which hit the net.
The match featured a strong club between the two teams, especially from Brighton, who prevented the City’s strikers from scoring more than one goal.
And goalkeeper Robert Sanchez played the hero in the Brighton team, where he faced many dangerous balls from the Manchester City attackers.
The match almost ended with a second goal from the Citizens’ Brigade, when it got a penalty kick in the first minute of stoppage time after the Brighton goalkeeper hampered de Bruyne, and Sterling wasted it after he hit the crossbar, and the match ended with a victory for City (1-0).
With this result, the team raised its score to 32 points, to rise to third place, while Brighton stuck to 14 points in 17th place.
