BHA 1-4 MNC: City Keeps Scoring Goals For Fun, Closes The Gap On Chelsea At The Top Of The PL Table

Manchester City secured an important win in their Premier League game against Brighton earlier this evening.

Pep Guardiola would be really glad with the performance of his players especially in the second half.

Manchester City started the game on a very good note as they dominated possession in the early stages.

City grabbed their first goal of the game after a brilliant strike from Ikay Gundogan. The German attacker becomes the only City player to have scored in three consecutive games at Brighton's home ground.

Phil Foden doubled the lead in the 29th minute after a devastating counter attacking play by Guardiola's men.

It got even worse for Brighton right before the end of the first half as Gabriel Jesus fired home the third goal for Manchester City.

Brighton improved their performance in the second half. The home team grabbed a consolation goal in the 81st minute through their substitute, Allister. However, they managed to concede one more goal in the closing stages of the game as Riyad Mahrez fired the ball home from close range.

City's win against Brighton means they are currently two points behind league leaders, Chelsea, who cruised past Norwich earlier in the day.
