Sergio Aguero's powerful finish and a Lewis Dunk own goal in the final 20 minutes gave City enough to leave the South Coast with a victory in hand to began the campaign.

The EPL 2017-18 kicked off in high-scoring fashion on Friday with Arsenal's 4-3 win over Leicester City.

"That is why the club was clever to do that because we anticipated what we needed and we tried to do our best, not just for next season but the future".

"He has got to work with them for the last four or five weeks, getting them into the type of shape that he wants to play good football". Last season I rotated the team a lot and I will do that again.

The Premier League match between Brighton and Manchester City will be broadcast live on NBC.

Guardiola is delighted with the quality in his squad but says he will make plenty of changes to keep them fresh in a bid to challenge for the title as well as the Champions League.

"Last season, it was the same and look what happened".

Brighton & Hove Albion even did it three times, first signing Australian keeper Mathew Ryan, then Dutch midfielder Davy Propper and finally Colombian Jose Izquierdo from Club Brugge.

Guardiola also said he was happy to have dynamic fullbacks in Walker, Mendy and Danilo to fulfil the demands he places on his wide defenders.

Man City signed Walker from Jenas' former club for around £50m earlier in the transfer window and he believes that Tottenham got a good fee, but is anxious to see Guardiola working with England's best right-back.

He said: "We spoke about that".

Jesus should have scored a legitimate goal after 33 minutes.

"We are so satisfied for the first game, the way we played".

All these set us up for what could be the most competitive and entertaining season in the history of the English Premier League.

"To do that you need a certain type of players".

"We controlled the counter-attacks, we conceded just one chance in 90 minutes away from home and that's not easy in the Premier League".
