Manchester City are taking on Brighton and Hove Albion tonight in the Premier League.

City are aiming to climb into the top four with victory, with fourth-placed Tottenham not playing Fulham until later this evening.

"They have lots of top individuals, but collectively they're an amazing outfit, all credit to Pep and his staff for that," Brighton manager Graham Potter said.

"They've not just got the talent, the tactical flexibility, just the attacking football, there's an attitude to run, to fight, to work hard, there's a humility about the team.

"They go about their work in an amazing way, they're worthy Premier League champions for two of the last three years, they're a fantastic team."
