Phil Foden Scored the only Goal as City Beat Brighton
Following tonight’s 1:0 win over Brighton, Manchester City have extended their unbeaten run to 14 matches across all competitions. Young Phil Foden strike in the first half of the game to give his side the win.
Phil Foden grabbed the only goal just before half-time when he collected Kevin de Bruyne’s pass, created space, and fired into the bottom corner.
Manchester Ciry had chances to extend the lead, but they failed to convert their chances. Riyad Mahrez shot went off target and Ilkay Gundogan smhad his effort saved by Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez.
Also, Bernardo Silva hit the crossbar. Most culpably, Raheem Sterling sent an injury-time penalty over the bar after Sanchez had fouled De Bruyne. Alexis Mac Allister had perhaps the Seagulls’ best chance to equalise but shot over the top.
Phil Foden’s goal was enough to seal City’s fourth straight win in the league. The win has now moved them up to the third place position although they will drop back to fourth if Tottenham win against Fulham in the late game on Wednesday.
Brighton, meanwhile, have now not won in nine league matches and could find themselves in the bottom three if 18th-placed Fulham come out on top at Spurs.
