Ansu Fati was back in action on Saturday and back in the goals as he came off the bench to score against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Brighton were losing 2-0 when Fati arrived but his goal gave the Seagulls hope of snatching a point against the champions.

Fati struck home from inside the penalty area with a low shot that beat goalkeeper Stefan Ortega. It was a lively cameo from Fati who proved a handful for Manuel Akanji, with the City defender sent off for a tug on the forward late on.

Ultimately, it wasn’t to be for Roberto de Zerbi’s men, who lost 2-1, but this is surely a step in the right direction for Fati.

The goal is just Fati’s second for Brighton after he opened his account in his team’s 6-1 thrashing by Aston Villa.

Brighton go on to play Ajax in midweek in the Champions League.
