Brighton Team News: Five ruled out of Manchester City clash

Brighton will miss the services of four key players when they take on Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in an English Premier League match on Wednesday night. 

The Seagulls played out an entertaining 3-3 draw against Wolves last time out and will need to dig deeper against the former Champions at Etihad. 

They will have to do so without a number of their key players, whom coach Graham Potter confirmed will miss the match. 

Tariq Lamptey, Danny Welbeck, Adam Lallana, and Aaron Connolly are all out due to injuries, while Yves Bissouma is suspended for the match. 

Steven Alzate is, however, likely to be involved in the squad, while Alireza Jahanbakhsh will be assessed.

City go into the match on the back of impressive wins against Chelsea, in the league, neighbours Man United, in the Carabao Cup and their latest win over Birmingham in the FA Cup. 

Overall, Guardiola's team are unbeaten in their last 13 matches in all competitions and have won the last six of those.

They will also miss up to five players for the clash, led by striker Sergio Aguero, who has been forced to self-isolate after someone close to him tested positive for Coronavirus. 

Others who will miss the match include Aymeric Laporte and Nathan Ake, who remain on the sidelines with injuries, with Eric Garcia and Cole Palmer still in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19.
