Brighton-Manchester City, the probable formations

Brighton and Manchester City will face each other in the 32nd Premier League matchday recovery. Kickoff at 9 p.m. at the Amex Stadium. Guardiola, after winning the title, could continue to rotate his players to play it safe ahead of the Fa Cup and Champions League finals against United and Inter respectively. De Zerbi, on the other hand, already certain of Conference League qualification, will want to try to reach the Europa League.

The Seagulls are expected to rely on Welbeck as center forward. Supporting the Englishman will be Enciso, Mitoma and MacAllister. In the median there will be space for Caicedo and Gross. In the Citizens, Julian Álvarez should be confirmed at the center of the attack, with Mahrez, De Bruyne, Palmer and Foden at the back.

Likely lineups.

BRIGHTON (4-2-3-1): Steele; Colwill, Dunk, Webster, Estupinan; Caicedo, Gross; Enciso, MacAllister, Mitoma; Welbeck. All: De Zerbi.

MANCHESTER CITY (3-2-4-1): Ederson; Walker, Akanji, Laporte; Lewis, Philipps; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden, Palmer; Alvarez. All: Guardiola.
