Riyad MahrezPhil Foden and Bernardo Silva all struck in the second half as Pep Guardiola’s men edged one point ahead in the title race with six games to go.

Guardiola recalled a number of key players he had left out for Saturday’s 3-2 FA Cup semi-final defeat by Liverpool, but it took City time to break Brighton‘s resolve at a tense Etihad.

The Seagulls had won on the road at Arsenal and Tottenham in their previous two games and frustrated the English champions for the first 45 minutes.

Mahrez bore the brunt of the City support’s nerves as he missed the best chance before the break when he passed up the opportunity to take a quick shot from Robert Sanchez‘s mishit clearance.

City captain Ruben Dias made his return from injury after a two-month absence at half-time.
