Manchester City 1 – 0 Brighton & Hove Football Highlights
Venue : Wembley Stadium
Key Moments Recap :
Goal : 4′ Gabriel Jesus
What a fantastic team goal as Laporte’s long crossfield pass finds Bernardo Silva down the right, and his flick releases De Bruyne. And from the Belgian’s inch-perfect centre, there was the unmarked Jesus to stoop low to head home from six yards out.
