Pep Guardiola demands more quality to Manchester City's play

Paul Merson Arsenal Leicester

Bernardo Silva will give us options in midfield and Ederson looks like a confident goalkeeper.

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Solly March reveals his delight after making his Premier League debut against Manchester City.

However, while Distin supports the signing of players with league familiarity, like Kyle Walker, he admits you never know how long it takes new arrivals to adapt to the Premier League style.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we have this season".

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. "It will not be easy but we travel to win the game".

Chris Hughton insists Brighton can hold their own in the Premier League by targeting "middle market" signings while the big clubs flex their financial muscle.

ORIGINAL: Manchester City are playing Brighton at the Amex Stadium today on the first weekend of the Premier League 2017/18 season.

City will be without Mendy and Ilkay Gundogan for the match at promoted side Brighton on Saturday, but Guardiola said they were close to returning from injury. But we can not forget that when we do something better than last season it's because we've been one year together. Kevin De Bruyne nipped in to take the ball from Dale Stephens, found David Silva, who in turn fed Aguero to finish.

What happens here will be absolutely no indication of what will happen to the Seagulls this season - that will come when they play the teams that I think will be down in the bottom six.

With the victory, City are now provisionally in second place in the EPL standings with three points, while Brighton are in the 19th spot with none. Romelu Lukaku should bring goals, which were a particular issue against lesser sides: United drew 10 home matches last season, at least eight of which it could be said to have dominated.

"We are going to see at the end of the season what happens", he indicated.
