Brighton boss Hughton positive despite Manchester City defeat

Manchester plots a London heist

Manchester plots a London heist

No such drama with the blue side of Manchester. We didn't attack the next line in the proper way but that is normal in this part of the season.

Yaya ready for the season.


Pep Guardiola has had a full campaign to try and test what works and what does not, along with two transfer windows to re-build his squad.

No wonder Guardiola was so relieved at the start of his second season in charge.

Goalkeeper Ederson, midfielder Bernardo Silva and full-backs Kyle Walker and Danilo could all feature for Pep Guardiola's side.

Giles goes on to tip City to win the Premier League this season - let's hope he's spot on.

Having insisted throughout last season, particularly when the team was struggling during the winter months, that he would never change his principles, the reality is that Guardiola has modified his approach in an effort to succeed in England.

It seems that the first round of "Manchester City" fits in a good game tone and confidence in their abilities. We need to bring in as much quality as we can.

Brighton started the game with plenty of passion and momentum as they hosted their first Premier League match.

Moving on, the ever-readable Simon Curtis - writing on ESPN - has turned the clock back to the early 1980s as he recalls a clash that might otherwise have been long forgotten...

The City boss didn't specify if they would be incomings or outgoings, but is known to want another attacker and a centre-back to further strengthen his squad. Good as it may look, good is not enough.

"We had them under pressure for five minutes or so, but they are hard to play against".

"City too were beset with problems in those dark days". Expect them to be more ruthless and Guardiola to be much more savvy this time around. The penultimate game of the season was at the Goldstone Ground, Brighton's ramshackle stadium until 1997. "In tumultuous circumstances, Luton pulled off the great escape with an infamous 84th minute victor from Radomir Antic, thus relegating City alongside Brighton".

As the Seagulls prepare to host City on Saturday afternoon, Hughton has insisted his men must ignore any gulf in financial clout, citing Burnley and Bournemouth as examples of how to carve out a Premier League niche on a budget.

Here's what they have to say about one of our new boys...

Manchester City could hand debuts to four summer signings.

"It is not easy to attack 10 players there", Guardiola said.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona striker believes City can improve on their third-placed finish from last season because their manager simply "won't accept" anything less that a championship.

"We're here to win games and we won the first one - but it's just the first one", he said.
