On Tuesday, champions Manchester City take on Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League, with the Citizens hoping to generate momentum ahead of their Champions League final against Chelsea at the end of May.

Meanwhile, Brighton have already secured their place in the Premier League for the fourth year in a row, so their only goal now is to finish as high in the table as possible.

Team News

After being sent off in the previous defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers, Brighton captain Lewis Dunk and top goalscorer Neal Maupay will miss the last day travel to Arsenal, but they will be available again

Steven Alzate could be replaced in the starting lineup by Adam Lallana, who came off the bench against West Ham after returning from a recent injury. The former Liverpool midfielder's ability to play in tight spaces should help him avoid Man City's aggressive press.

Owing to calf and ankle ailments, Joel Veltman and Davy Propper could miss another game, while Solly March and Tariq Lamptey have been ruled out for the rest of the season due to knee and hamstring ailments, respectively.

Man City, on the other hand, will be without Kevin De Bruyne owing to a minor muscle issue, with the Belgian unlikely to play until the Champions League final.

Sergio Aguero was left out of the squad for the trip to Newcastle, however it's unclear whether this was owing to an injury or his failed effort to convert a Panenka penalty during the team's recent league defeat to Chelsea.

Guardiola may make a number of changes to guarantee that players like Ederson, John Stones, Ruben Dias, Fernandinho, Riyad Mahrez, and Phil Foden are not weary ahead of the final against Chelsea.

Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Sanchez; Burn, Webster, White; Gross, Lallana, Bissouma, Moder; Trossard, Jahanbakhsh; Welbeck

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Cancelo, Mendy, Dias, Stones; Silva, Fernandinho, Foden; Mahrez, Jesus, Torres
