Manchester City return brilliant to Premier League summit!

Premier League – Manchester City broke through thanks to deflected efforts from Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden.

Manchester City scored three times in the second half on Wednesday to recover top spot in the Premier League with a 3-0 victory over Brighton.

The scoreline did not tell the whole tale of a tense match at the Etihad Stadium,

in which champions Manchester City were frustrated by Graham Potter’s tenacious team before the break.

They broke through thanks to deflected efforts from Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden, and the joy that filled the stadium after an edgy first half was palpable.

With a magnificent third goal for the hosts eight minutes from time, Bernardo Silva calmed any concerns.

In a tense title battle, Liverpool’s thrashing of Manchester United on Tuesday had placed the pressure back on City.

Following Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final loss to Liverpool,

Pep Guardiola made six changes, with Kevin De Bruyne and Ederson among those who returned.

As a result, the home team was full of confidence, but Brighton were not in the mood to take things easy.

After a beautiful move, City proved their threat after 10 minutes when Foden whipped in a cross from the left,

but Mahrez failed to make decent contact with his header.

Manchester City vs Brighton GOALS!!

Soon after, Mahrez was given another chance when goalkeeper Robert Sanchez’s clearance fell to him, but the Algerian took too long to react,

allowing Moises Caicedo to recover and tackle him.

When Sanchez punched away a De Bruyne cross,

he looked more assured, and he also did well to claw an effort from Silva under his own bar.

City came closest in the first half when De Bruyne unleashed a devastating long-range shot that sailed barely wide.

City continued to press, but skipper Lewis Dunk,

who stayed firm to deny an Ilkay Gundogan shot before the break, typified Brighton’s tenacity.
