Brighton & Hove Albion F.C. have gained promotion to the English Premier League (EPL) after Huddersfield Town were held to a 1-1 draw by Derby County in the English Championship.

Brighton beat Wigan Athletic 2-1 to move seven points clear at the top of the table.

The South-Coast club can now start preparing for life in the top division again, following their relegation in 1982-1983 and subsequent journey down and back up the leagues.

They need three more points to clinch the Championship title and will be crowned champions if they win at Norwich on Friday.

Manchester City Boss Expects Tough Clash Against Sunderland

CityManchester City manager, Manuel Pellegrini, says his side will expect a tough match against struggling side, Sunderland in Tuesday night’s English Premier League match at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland lie second from bottom of the Premier League while City are second from top, three points behind Leicester City.

City have a tough fixture list in February following the Sunderland clash, hosting leaders Leicester before facing Tottenham Hotspur the following week and then an FA Cup clash with Chelsea.

Pellegrini’s statement is also coming after Manchester City confirmed that Pep Guardiola would replace the Chilean as their new manager this summer.

City said they had finalised contractual negotiations with the former Barcelona gaffer to become the head coach for the 2016/2017 EPL season onward.

Guardiola will take over at the Etihad Stadium on a three-year deal with Pellegrini set to officially depart on June 30.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by the English Premier League (EPL) club on Monday.

Meanwhile, Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, also expressed hopes that a home advantage would come into play when the Gunners host Southampton in the EPL on Tuesday.

Arsenal are third in the league, three points behind leaders Leicester City after 23 games and Wenger does not want a repeat of the performance his side put in on Boxing Day when they lost 4-0 at St Mary.

Despite Arsenal having had two draws, away against Stoke City and Liverpool as well as a home defeat to Chelsea in their last three games, Wenger believes his side are playing well.
