Our prediction: Brighton v Man City

The Seagulls battled to an impressive 1-1 draw with West Ham last time out, but with captain Lewis Dunk still suspended, Brighton's backline will struggle to cope with City's array of attacking talent.

Sergio Aguero has a decent record when playing Brighton and he'll see this match as an opportunity to bag one final brace or hat-trick to end his City career on a high.

Brighton have played some tidy football this season but Graham Potter is likely to be in for a Pep masterclass this evening.

Our prediction: Brighton 0-4 Man City (20/1 at bet365)
