PEP PREVIEW

"We prepare for the Brighton game like we have done all season.

"Working to prepare for Brighton helps us for the (Champions League) final.

"I am not focused on Chelsea. We wouldn’t prepare well if we weren’t prepared for Brighton and Everton.

"On Tuesday we are going to play a game to win again, it’s the best way to arrive for the final.

"As a squad when we arrived back we were focused. We have to prepare, they trained really well.

"I saw the team after two days off, they are so focused.

"We will play the next game and prepare for the final.

"I have no doubts about the incredible commitment to do what we have to do to win the three games we still have."

FORM GUIDE

City set a new record for the most consecutive away league wins in the history of the top four tiers of English football last week.

Our victory at Newcastle on Friday evening was our 12th away league win in a row, eclipsing the previous record of 11 held by Chelsea (2008) and ourselves (2017).



Brighton's 1-1 draw against West Ham United on Saturday evening represented their 14th stalemate this season, which is currently a league-high.

Graham Potter's side are also unbeaten at home in over two months, with Leicester City dealing their last defeat at the Amex at the beginning of March.

They presently sit in 17th place in the Premier League, 11 points clear of the relegation zone.

LAST MEETING

City were made to work hard for the three points at the Etihad Stadium back in January against the Seagulls, with a Phil Foden strike securing a 1-0 win.

Bernardo Silva struck the woodwork and Raheem Sterling missed an added time penalty, with visitors belying their lowly position in the Premier League.

City have won all five of the previous league meetings between the sides.
