Adam Webster, the Brighton defender, says the recent Premier League break which was enforced by the coronavirus pandemic has helped them regain their form.
“The lockdown came at a good time for us. We used it to reflect, to have a break and take our minds off football which we did for a bit," Webster said.
“We’ve all come back raring to go. During lockdown, the lads worked so hard fitness-wise.
"We came back in really good shape and that helped us straight away when we started proper training. The break allowed us to almost start again.”
Meanwhile, Brighton suffered a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Manchester United in their last home match in the league on June 30.
The Seagulls are set to host Liverpool FC on July 08, before they lock horns with the former Premier League champions City.
On the other hand, City succumbed to a narrow 1-0 defeat to Southampton in their last away match in the league on July 05.
As a result, the Citizens are winless in their last three away matches having registered three successive defeats.
