Brighton vs Manchester City, Premier League

Manchester City's Sergio Aguero celebrates after scoring his second goal against Borussia Monchengladbach during the Champions League Group C match between Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach at the Etihad Stadium SilverHub

This is a player who is given far less credit than he deserves in terms of his work-rate, assists, energy, trackback-ability and unsafe pin-point crossing to mention but a few.

City's breakthrough came within minutes of Guardiola bringing on Leroy Sane, just one member of a star-studded bench from which Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling later emerged. This meant City had to unexpectedly spend big for another right-back, that being Danilo, a multi-functional player also capable of playing left-back as he's proven in pre-season. "But we try to win the game".

"The teams that arrive, in the first four, five, six games they are so complicated".

He was then offered a five-year-contract five days later. "We tried to improve, to attack more fluently, a little bit quicker, a little more precise, a little more accuracy in our passes".

The Red Devils are now gearing up for their second season under new manager Jose Mourinho following his appointment at Old Trafford last summer.

We bought three and the market is so demanding not just for Manchester City.

Asked whether being favourites bothered him, Guardiola said: "No". They already have players with top flight experience. Good as it may look, good is not enough. They need to hit the ground running.

Guardiola's City have made some eye-catching additions this summer, particularly in the forward ranks, and the club are many pundits' favourites for the league title thanks to their strength in depth. The most predictable, however, is the 3-5-2 and the 4-2-3-1/4-3-3.


City had the ball in Brighton's net after 27 minutes, but it was disallowed.

Fans will get their first glimpse of how one of the contenders will fare when Arsenal, fresh from their Community Shield victory over Chelsea, face Leicester in the season opener at the Emirates Stadium.

City did concede a lot of goals last season, struggling to keep clean sheets, but with Ederson signed in goal and Vincent Kompany, Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones manning the defence, the Citizens picked up back-to-back clean sheets in their final two friendlies.

Glenn Murray was in fiery form last season and he will be hoping to continue the same against Manchester City. They could put out a second eleven that would be a more than respectable Premier League team on its own merit, once Guardiola chooses the hard task of selecting his best line up.

Chris Hughton wants his Brighton players to go into the Premier League with no fear.

Even Brighton took some encouragement from the game, despite being unable to emulate fellow newcomer Huddersfield and open with a win.

Personally, I believe they'll top their previous achievement.
