Manchester City will be eyeing a return to winning ways when they welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to the Etihad Stadium for their Premier League contest on Saturday.
The Citizens suffered their first defeat of the season at the hands of Liverpool last weekend, while the Seagulls were held to a goalless draw at home against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.
For the first time since the opening day of last season, Manchester City sustained defeat away from home in the Premier League when they lost to rivals Liverpool in a fiery battle at Anfield last weekend, courtesy of a second-half strike from Mohamed Salah.
Brighton had been occupying a place in the top four during the early stages of this season, but they have since dropped down to the eighth spot, five points behind Potter’s fourth-placed Chelsea, who they will face at the Amex Stadium next weekend.
Returning to winning ways and climbing back towards the Champions League places may prove challenging in the short term for the Seagulls, as they head into Saturday’s clash having lost 10 of their 12 visits to Man City, scoring just twice and conceding 21 goals.
