Team News

City: Kevin De Bruyne is back in training and could feature at the Amex this Sunday. The Belgian had been sidelined with a hamstring injury for over a month, but has trained this week and is back in contention.

However, the trip has come too soon for Fernandinho, who remains out with a knee problem.

Brighton: Brighton captain Bruno will play the final game of his career on Sunday after announcing his retirement on Friday afternoon. The right-back has been at the club since 2012, and Seagulls boss Chris Hughton described the 38-year-old Spaniard as a 'legend' on the club's website, while Pep described him as an 'incredible professional' in his preview.

Last Time Out

We most recently faced Brighton in the FA Cup semi-final, when Gabriel Jesus' effort in the 4th minute was enough to send us into the final!

In the reverse Premier League fixture, we beat the Seagulls 2-0 at the Etihad back in September. That time, it was Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero with the goals.

Pep Guardiola preview:

"First of all it’s a dream to be here. I didn’t expect a month ago when we were seven points behind this Liverpool it’s a dream.

"Of course now is not the moment to say how good we’ve done we have the chance to be champions. Okay if it happens it will be nice but nothing is going to change.

"The team were relaxed, training was good, smiling a lot. In the game anything can happen, one mistake from us can decide the title but we have to be more precise and good in the aspects we are working with."
