Manchester City welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to The Etihad when the Premier League returns on Saturday. 

The Citizens currently sit third in the top flight table, having lost their last two games in the competition – the first time they have lost consecutive Premier League matches since 2018.

Manager Pep Guardiola will be keen to ensure that his side improve when domestic football returns after the international break, with two points currently separating first-placed Tottenham Hotspur from City.

In the meantime, City reportedly remain interested in a Premier League attacker.

According to Football Insider, the reigning Premier League champions are still monitoring Crystal Palace star Eberechi Eze.

The 25-year-old has been in fine form over the past 12 months, but his performances haven’t gone unnoticed and City remain interested in the player despite failing to sign him over the summer.

It is claimed that City tried to land Eze during the recent summer transfer window, but ultimately signed Matheus Nunes from Wolves after failing to lure Eze away from South London.

The attacker hasn’t yet signed a contract extension with the Eagles, who value the player at £70 million, and City are therefore continuing to monitor his situation.

Eze joined Palace from Championship side Queen’s Park Rangers back in 2020 and has since made 102 appearances for his current side across all competitions, scoring 16 goals and providing 13 assists.

So far this season the winger has made seven Premier League appearances, scoring once.

He was handed his senior debut for England back in June, during a Euro 2024 qualifier against Malta.

The Englishman’s current contract is set to run until the summer of 2025, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will remain at the club until that date.
