Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne has scored in consecutive Premier League matches for the first time since September 2020. Only once before has the Belgian scored in three consecutive appearances in the competition, doing so in September/October 2015.

Having lost their first seven Premier League matches against City by an aggregate score of 21-2, Brighton & Hove Albion came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 in their last meeting in the competition in May.

Brighton scored more goals in their last match against City (3) than they had in their previous eight matches against them in all competitions (2).

City have never lost back-to-back league meetings with Brighton, overall losing only four of their 22 previous such matches against the Seagulls (W14 D4 L4).
