Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City - fans' View

Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City - fans' View”

"We had chances in the first minutes". I'm going to be courageous and say the game will finish 4-0.

As for the hosts, Chris Hughton's Brighton & Hove Albion side have enjoyed a strong pre-season, boasting three wins and two draws from their last five games this season.

City manager Pep Guardiola will be under pressure from the start after strengthening his squad with five new signings in the transfer window, costing the club some $286 million. "We are playing in a division now where we are going to be severely tested and we are going to have to vary our game at times". "Hopefully in the future we can be more accurate in those terms".

City's away form was impressive last season, earning more points on the road than any team apart from eventual champions Chelsea.

After their title rivals lost their heads, Manchester City kept theirs.

"We know it's going to be a special day because it's the first Premier League game at the Amex, and the first Premier League game for the club". Perhaps we've got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way.

Afterwards the manager was predictably delighted with all the riches at his disposal and promised that City will "improve the way we attack" this season.

"We run a lot", he said.

Manchester United scored only 54 goals last season, letting an excellent defensive season go to waste with a sixth-place finish.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton was proud of his side but felt they exhausted towards the end as City's class showed in the final 20 minutes.

They return to the fray this weekend having spent around $261 million on players and Guardiola believes an exciting new team is taking shape. Manchester City: Ederson: 7, Kyle Walker: 7, Danilo: 7, Vicent Kompany: 6, John Stones: 6, Nicolas Otamendi: 7, Fernandinho: 7, Kevin de Bruyne: 7, Sergio Aguero: 8, Gabriel Jesus: 7, David Silva: 7. It is weird because as defensively fragile as they looked at times a year ago.

"It's going to be a challenge for everybody but we'll take it in our stride, compete and we'll surprise a few people", March told The Times newspaper.
