City appealed for any penalty whenever a De Bruyne shot struck the hands of Dunk, whose arm was stationary by his side. Referee Michael Oliver was unmoved.
Ederson flapped at another corner and Propper blasted a 25-yard effort wide. That number of set-pieces was just like it got for Chris Hughton’s side.
Fernandinho’s pass was centred by David Silva, who’d operated by an offside Aguero, and Jesus netted, however the strike was eliminated.
And also the visitors struck when De Bruyne stole the ball from Dale Stephens.
Brighton thought an chance. Murphy brought a counter-attack and, from the corner, Duffy’s shot deflected wide.
However the moment they made it happen was callous as striker Aguero converted twenty minutes from time.
