Man City begin EPL season with 2-0 win over Brighton

Man City begin EPL season with 2-0 win over Brighton

Below is a ratings form for you to fill out with how you rate each Manchester City player's performance.

Guardiola has spent over £200 million ($258 million) on new signings as the Spaniard aims to make amends for City's trophyless flop in his first season in charge. Kyle Walker, signed from Spurs, and France global Benjamin Mendy will improve their fullback positions, a key position in Guardiola's playbook.

"It was quite similar level to pre-season in terms of working without the ball, and we are going to improve", he added. "We are looking forward to next week". We were stable. We controlled the game and the game was in our hands. "The only thing that might go against them is the pressure they put on themselves as a club and as a manager to actually win it".

He said: "Last season we were favourites too and finished 15 points behind and, from my experience as a manager, always in the beginning of the season, the new teams are the toughest ones".

We have controlled the counter-attacks and we didn't concede one chance.

With the price of players on a sharp upward curve this summer, Guardiola feels the fees being paid are unsustainable over the long-term and will soon come down.

Stocks Regain Ground But Still Close Lower For The Week
The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index fell 39.02 points, or 0.26 percent, to end at 15,217.33. It was the biggest daily fall on the FTSE 100 since April 18 this year when the market lost 180 points.

All three have the pace to change defence into attack quickly, something City lacked in the full-back positions last season.

"Hopefully in the future we can be more accurate". Every game is a battle, especially with the teams who arrive in the first four, five or six games - they are so complicated, especially away.

It has been another strong showing of City's financial muscle but Guardiola insists the club have only paid market rates and such major rebuilding work is a one-off.

"It started a little bit with Madrid signing Cristiano and Bale".

In the end they were undone by their own mistakes, with Dale Stephens caught in possession in the lead-up to Aguero's goal and Dunk's own goal sealing their fate in a game City should have won more comfortably given their 75 percent possession.

"The market is going insane and the quicker you can get your business done and get away from the manic insane stuff, the better it is".
