Man City vs Brighton and Hove Albion Predicted XI!

Man City take on Brighton and Hove Albion at the Etihad Stadium and hope to end their 2 game losing streak with the likes of John Stones and Rodri being available for selection again. City had to play Arsenal with Mateo Kovacic holding down the midfield and after that performance it is fair to say Pep Guardiola is relieved to have Rodri back in the Squad after his 3 game ban after being sent off against Nottingham Forest last month. 

Ederson; The keeper is expected to keep is place as usual with Stefan Ortega on the bench.
Walker: After another great international break with England there is no compeition that Kyle Walker will start.
Dias: He is City's strongest CB at the moment and is what we need to hold down such a strong Brighton attack.
Akanji: After scoring for Switzerland in the international break we expect Manuel Akanji to play for the blues today.
Gvardiol: After being a bright star in such a poor team performance Josko Gvardiol is set to fend off Nathan Ake for that left back position.
Rodri: Rodri must start after woeful performances in the defensive midfield position by Mateo Kovacic and Kalvin Phillips .
Kovacic: Despite a poor performance against Arsenal Mateo Kovacic still has the precision to keep control of the ball during todays match.
Alvarez: The best City player so far this season, he must start.
Doku: The linkup between Jeremy Doku and Julian Alvarez is a deadly combination and must be deployed against Brighton
Grealish: After assisting for England midweek, today may be the chance to get Jack Grealish firing for City again.
Haaland: Erling Haaland has been on a unusual goal drought for City but after scoring twice for Norway during the international break he hopes to end that
