Phil Foden scored the only goal of the game (Laurence Griffiths/PA) Phil Foden scored the only goal as Manchester City moved up to third in the Premier League with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Brighton at the Etihad Stadium.

Foden netted his eighth of the season just before half-time – a superb low strike from the edge of the box – as City maintained their recent climb up the table with a fourth successive league win.



Remarkably, however, Brighton remained in the game.



City should have killed off the game in injury time as Sanchez brought down De Bruyne but substitute Sterling blazed over from the spot.

Sanchez saved again from De Bruyne after City broke from one end of the field to the other in a flash following a Brighton corner and the hosts finally claimed a deserved lead a minute before the break.

When the action resumed in the second half, City threatened to overwhelm the Seagulls.

Foden took the pass in his stride and took out a defender with a clever first touch before steadying himself and firing a low shot into the bottom corner.
