The world's eyes will be on the Amex on Sunday when Manchester City target the win which will see them crowned Premier League champions.

Pep Guardiola's side know anything less than three points against Brighton will give Liverpool the opportunity to lift the title.

Albion are already safe from relegation and they produced one of their best performances of the season in their 1-1 draw at Arsenal last weekend.

City go into the game on the back of 13 successive Premier League wins, while Brighton have drawn three of their last four matches.

Manchester City beat Brighton 2-0 at the Etihad earlier this season and also defeated Albion 1-0 in the semi-finals of the FA Cup last month.

What time does Brighton v Manchester City kick off?

The game gets underway from the Amex at 3pm on Sunday.

Is the game on TV?

Yes. The game will be live on Sky Sports Premier League. Coverage begins at 2pm.

Highlights will be on Match Of The Day at 10.30pm on Sunday evening.

What’s the team news?

Brighton winger Jose Izquierdo will miss the game but midfielder Davy Propper could return after a hamstring injury.

Seagulls boss Chris Hughton is unlikely to make too many changes from Sunday's 1-1 draw at Arsenal.

Goalkeeper Mathew Ryan and the back four of Bruno, Shane Duffy, Lewis Dunk and Bernardo will likely remain the same.

If Propper is fit, he could partner Dale Stephens and Pascal Gross in central midfield, although Yves Bissouma impressed at the Gunners.

Solly March starred on the left wing at Arsenal and is expected to start, while Anthony Knockaert could come in for Alireza Jahanbakhsh on the other wing.

Glenn Murray is likely to lead the line, with Florin Andone on the bench.

Kevin de Bruyne, Fernandinho and Fabian Delph all missed Manchester City's 1-0 win over Leicester on Monday.

Pep Guardiola will provide an update on the trio later this week but he is likely to stick with the majority of the team who started the win against the Foxes.

Young midfielder Phil Foden is most likely to drop out of the starting line-up. His place could be taken by one of the above trio if any are fit to return or Leroy Sane, who came on in his place against Leicester.

Who is the referee?

Michael Oliver will be the man in the middle for Brighton's match with Manchester City. He has shown 83 yellow cards and seven reds in 29 Premier League games this season.

The assistant referees at the Amex will be Stuart Burt and Simon Bennett, with Paul Tierney the fourth official.

What are the odds?

Manchester City are firm favourites to claim all three points and are priced at 1/8 on PaddyPower.

A Brighton victory is 16/1 and the draw is 15/2.

A repeat of City's 2-0 Premier League win at the Etihad earlier this season is 11/2, while the 1-0 scoreline they beat Albion by in the semi-finals of the FA Cup is 9/1.

Brighton are 60/1 to claim a 1-0 or 2-1 win and 125/1 to win 2-0.

A 0-0 draw is 30/1, with a 1-1 scoreline 16/1 and 2-2 30/1.

City striker Sergio Aguero is 13/5 and 4/9 to net anytime. Gabriel Jesus is 3/1 and 4/7 respectively, with Raheem Sterling 7/2 and 4/5.

Brighton top-scorer Glenn Murray is 11/1 to score first and 11/4 to net anytime, with Florin Andone 12/1 and 10/3 respectively and five-goal defender Shane Duffy 35/1 and 10/1.
