Brighton’s draw break Man city winning streak.


Champions Manchester City’s 12-match Premier League winning streak came to an end on Wednesday when they were held to a 1-1 draw by sixth-placed Brighton & Hove Albion.

Man City, who wrapped up a fifth title in six seasons at the weekend, lacked their usual intensity but took the lead when Phil Foden slotted home in the 25th minute.

Brighton have sealed sixth-place and the club’s first venture into Europe, and showed why with some vibrant football and Julio Enciso equalized for the hosts with a stunning long-range effort in the 38th minute.

Danny Welbeck had a goal ruled out before halftime for Brighton and Erling Haaland thought he had put City ahead late on but was penalized for shirt-pulling after a VAR check.

It was the first time since February that City had dropped points and with one league game left at Brentford on Sunday they have 89 points, eight more than Arsenal.

Brighton matched City throughout an enjoyable contest and had 20 goal attempts to City’s 13, with seven of them on target.
