Manchester City 1 Brighton & Hove Albion 0

Albion can consider themselves unfortunate as they narrowly lost to high-flying Manchester City.

Phil Foden’s goal right on half time separated the teams but Albion had chances in each half.

Leandro Trossard went close in the first half for Albion as did Davy Propper in the second as he tried to steer home a Bernardo cross.

Ilkay Gundogan hit the post for City in the second half.

Albion stayed in the match right up until the end and gave a debut to Redo Khadra late on.

In the last few minutes Albion had a succession of corners and set pieces but somehow failed to get the ball effectively into the penalty area.

In stoppage time Raheem Sterling missed a penalty for City, blazing it over the bar.

Albion travel to Leeds United in the Premier League on Saturday (16 January).
