PEP PREVIEW

Sergio Aguero is one of five Manchester City players unavailable for Wednesday’s game against Brighton and Hove Albion, but Raheem Sterling is set to return for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Aguero missed Sunday’s FA Cup win over Birmingham City after coming into contact with someone who had tested positive for COVID-19 and his continued self-isolation rules him out of the Seagulls’ visit to the Etihad Stadium.

“He’s isolating,” said Guardiola when asked about the Argentine at his pre-match press conference.

“After nine or 10 days he will be back."

Injury means Nathan Ake and Aymeric Laporte will also be absent on Wednesday, whilst several players, including Eric Garcia, continue to self-isolate due to Coronavirus.

However, Sterling’s return is a boost for Guardiola, who confirmed the winger is available again after being left out of the matchday squad against Birmingham.

Laporte is injured, Nathan is injured, Eric and [Adrian] Bernabe are isolating,  Cole Palmer is isolating," he added.

"The rest, maybe I forget someone, but the rest are okay."

FORM GUIDE

Pep Guardiola’s side are in a rich vein of form, having recorded an impressive 13-match unbeaten run in all competitions.

Our latest performance saw us record a fine 3-0 win over Birmingham City in last Sunday’s FA Cup third round encounter

Graham Potter’s Brighton currently lie in 17th place in the Premier League table, having amassed 14 points from 17 games so far

The Seagulls also progressed through to the fourth round of the FA Cup at the weekend, overcoming Newport County 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out after the sides were locked at 1-1 after 90 minutes and extra time.

WATCH: Highlights: City 3-0 Birmingham

LAST MEETING

City ran out impressive 5-0 winners when the sides last met at the AMEX Stadium in July.

Raheem Sterling claimed a superb hat-trick for Pep Guardiola’s side with Gabriel Jesus and Bernardo Silva also on target in what was a fine all-round display..
