Brighton and Hove Albion have played more top-flight matches against reigning champions without winning than any other team in top-flight history (11 – W0 D2 L9).
Brighton manager Chris Hughton has lost eight of his 10 matches against Man City in all competitions (W1 D1), though his only victory came in a match on the closing day of the season (3-2 with Norwich in 2012-13).
Glenn Murray has scored seven home Premier League goals this season, at least five more than any other Brighton player, and accounting for 39% of their total (7/18). However, the striker hasn’t scored in any of his last 11 games at the Amex Stadium.
Sergio Aguero has scored 31 goals in all competitions for Man City this term – only in 2014-15 (32) and 2016-17 (33) has he scored more in a single season for the Citizens.
