Man City To Miss These First Team Players Ahead Of Brighton's Premier League Clash.

Manchester City's defender, Kyle Walker will miss the match against Brighton and Hove Albion tomorrow night, although some of his colleagues may be fit recovering from their own injuries, as Pep Guardiola provides injury update of his team.

Brighton head to the Etihad on Wednesday in search of a third unexpected victory after sensational victories away to London clubs Arsenal and Tottenham in their last two games. These performances were even more impressive given that they came after a seven-game losing streak, six of which were losses.

Despite the Seagulls having a few injury worries, they have been in unbeaten in their last three Premier League matches, and Graham Potter believes there is never a good moment to play City.

They are currently in 10th position with 40 points after 32 games so far.

Walker 31' still had his leg in a protective boot at the weekend after damaging his ankle in last week's UCL goalless draw away Atletico Madrid, and is already ruled out against the Seagulls. He has not been ruled out of Saturday's clash with Watford, but Guardiola says the prognosis will become clearer in the next day or two.

Meanwhile, midfielders Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin de Bruyne, as well as center-back Ruben Dias, will have a late fitness test, according to him.

Ruben Dias has been out since injuring his hamstring in the FA Cup 5th round tie away to Peterborough in early March, and has been seeing bench minutes as he eases back into full fitness.

De Bruyne (lower leg) and Gundogan (knee) were both unused substitutes in the FA Cup 3-2 semi-final defeat to Jurgen Klopp's side at Wembley stadium on Saturday, but could both return to action against Brighton.

Man City will need a compulsory win to stay top of the Premier League table with one point especially if Liverpool avoid defeat to Manchester United tonight at Anfield.
