The 26-year-old received a spot in the Seagulls’ starting eleven for Wednesday’s clash in Manchester.
Brighton & Hove Albion forward Percy Tau had a chance to make his Premier League debut against Manchester City on Wednesday.
The South African star has yet to play in the English top flight since his change from Mamelodi Sundowns in 2018 because he had spent the last two and a half years on loan in Belgium.
On Sunday, the 26-year-old was introduced as a substitute in the second half when Brighton defeated League Two club Newport County on penalties in the FA Cup.
For the match at the Etihad Stadium, Tau teams up with Leandro Trossard and Alexis Mac Allister to round out the Seagulls’ attacking force.
