Brighton vs Man City live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV tonight

By Karl Matchett

Follow the latest updates live as Brighton and Hove Albion take on Manchester City in the day’s final Premier League game.

City’s hopes of catching Premier League champions Liverpool may be over, but they cannot afford to let their foot off the gas with the FA Cup semi-final and Champions League resumption now firmly in view, with Pep Guardiola’s side having plenty left to play for this season. Brighton meanwhile are not quite mathematically safe, but kick-off this evening eight points in front of the relegation zone and know that a victory will ensure they will be playing Premier League football again next season.

Watford and West Ham both secured important victories earlier in the day to help their own survival campaigns, while Norwich’s relegation to the Championship was confirmed thanks to Michail Antonio’s incredible four goals, while Liverpool were held 1-1 in the only 3pm kick-off against Burnley. Chelsea lost the early evening kick-off at Sheffield United in a game that has plenty of repercussions in the battle for European football next season. Follow the action live:

City are now just the 21 points behind Liverpool, though oddly their goal difference (+57) is considerably better than that of the champions (+49). They've scored 91 goals in the Premier League now, and look on course to break the 100 mark.
City are sending out a warning to the teams still in the Champions League and FA Cup. No one will be looking forward to the prospect of playing them at the moment.
FULL TIME
And that's it! Another emphatic, stylish, clinical victory from City, with a hat-trick for Raheem Sterling. It's been some response to that defeat at Southampton last weekend. Five past Newcastle, five past Brighton. And their next opponents, Bournemouth, are probably dreading their trip to the Etihad on Wednesday. Brighton are not the first team to have been heavily beaten by City, and they'll probably put this down as an unavoidable night to forget.
90+1 min: Just the two minutes of added time, to the relief of Brighton's players.
89 min: The game is stretched now as Brighton search for a consolation goal. City are cruising towards the final whistle.
84 min: Mahrez hasn't got a goal yet tonight, and he tries to change that, driving an effort wide of the near post.
YELLOW CARD
83 min: Bissouma is booked for a poor tackle in midfield.
GOAL!
GOAL! Brighton 0-5 Manchester City (Sterling) 81 min
A bizarre goal for Sterling to bring up his hat-trick. He races onto a pass, lifts the ball over Dunk and then competes with Webster for the high ball a few yards out from goal. Sterling goes to ground and the ball strikes him on the head on its way down, deceiving Ryan and rolling in at the near post. Not a typical Sterling goal, but a Sterling goal nonetheless.
SUBS
78 min: The towering Dan Burn comes on for Gross.
78 min: Almost another brilliant City goal. Silva plays a superb first-time pass over the Brighton defence for Mahrez, who rounds Ryan but delays his shot and slams his finish against the side netting under pressure.
74 min: Another fluid City move ends with a low cross from Walker which is cleared at the near post. When Guardiola's side play like this it's hard to understand how they're so far behind Liverpool.
SUBS
72 min: More subs: Garcia, impressive again tonight, is replaced by Stones. And Fernandinho comes on for Rodri.
SUBS
69 min: Jahanbakhsh is on for Trossard for the final 20 minutes.
68 min: A welcome drinks break for Brighton.
67 min: It's very much a case of damage limitation for Brighton now as City probe on the edge of their box. Even just avoiding humiliation requires maximum concentration.

65 min:
SUBS
64 min: It's City's turn to make a triple change: Jesus, De Bruyne and Mendy make way for David Silva, Phil Foden and Zinchenko.
62 min: More exceptional midfield play from De Bruyne, who turns and feeds Walker with the outside of his right foot. The right back crosses first time in search of Jesus, but Ryan cuts it out.
61 min: Sterling fancies a hat-trick, but he's way off this time, cutting inside from the left and blazing a shot high and wide.
SUBS
60 min: Brighton make a triple sub: Lamptey, Stephens and Maupay replace Montoya, Propper and Connolly.
