South African attacker Percy Tau has been named in the Brighton starting line-up by manager Graham Potter to make his first start against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Tau impressed for the Albion when he made a cameo appearance off the bench in an FA Cup third round clash against Newport County with Potter's side needing penalties to advance.

The 26-year-old will now make his full debut against a Man City side - currently in sixth position in the standings - who will be aiming to move up the table with two games in hand.

Speaking ahead of tonight's fixture Potter said: "It's been a big week for Percy Tau. He has attributes that can help us in this tough match tonight."


Kick-off is at 20:00.
