Aguero on target as Man City down promoted Brighton

Aguero on target as Man City down promoted Brighton

The expectation-the hope, the dread-had been for an almighty clash in Manchester, Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola bringing the ferocity of their Spanish rivalry to the Premier League, matching competing ideologies against each other while trading barbs on an off-field propaganda war that would make the press-conferences nearly as compelling as the football.

Manager Pep Guardiola chose to start Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero up front together and the Brazilian youngster had the ball in the net in the first half, but it was ruled out for handball and the striker was subsequently booked.

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.

Manchester City look really strong and they are my tip for the title.

We have controlled the counter-attacks and we didn't concede one chance. We won 10 games in a row.

"We ran like a League One or a Conference side - you don't see any players on my team who don't run and that is what I am most proud of", Guardiola told his club's official website. In the 34 years since we have experienced highs and very many lows. "But we were not able to achieve what we were looking for".

Four-midable Manchester United sweep West Ham aside in Premier League opener
Anthony Martial has now been directly involved in more Premier League goals (27) since 2015/16 than any other Man Utd player. Mkhitaryan plays a lovely first-time pass through to Martial and the Frenchman easily slots the ball under Hart.

Pep Guardiola can not fault the work rate of his Manchester City side, but wants more precision in their play.

"We make good things last season with the player we had", he said. "We were stable but we have to try to improve".

"We bought three and the market is so demanding right now, for all the teams around the world, not just for Manchester City". After Claudio Bravo's struggles last season a new goalkeeper was essential, while Bernardo Silva should reduce the reliance on Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva for midfield creativity.

"Because I don't think last season the players he had were the type of players that he wanted so you have to rebuild the team around his project and the way he wants to play - it's a tough job for him". 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.

City have spent more than £200million on a squad revamp following last season's underwhelming campaign.
