Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City - fans´ View

Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City - fans´ View

Guardiola has added five first-team players courtesy of an estimated £200million spending spree in the close-season, overhauling City's defence in particular.

With Bernardo Silva added to the powerhouse attacking line-up available to Guardiola, the boss believes he is in a better place to execute his tactical plans in 2017-18, starting with Saturday's trip to newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion.

"Hopefully Mike can keep his word and we can do what we want to do", he said. He said that as of now I'm going to have more options in the build-up, to play both short and long balls.

A tough season ahead for Spurs and if they once again come away with no silverware it's possible that the head of manager Mauricio Pochettino may be turned elsewhere. There´s a gulf between Albion and City.

Romelu Lukaku might have joined Chelsea but ended up at Manchester United for £75 million ($99.18 million), a move that pushed Jose Mourinho's alternative targets Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata towards Arsenal and Chelsea respectively. Perhaps we´ve got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way. But I think it is unsustainable. We are strong defensively and I predict 1-1.

"We have spent, of course, but all the teams have spent", he continued. "I was confident last season too".

City have had a good warm-up going into the start of the campaign despite a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United in their opening clash of their pre-season tour of America.

This is the second update in the game's year 2 content, and will be coming to players of the game on all platforms on August 29th. We expect that news will come shortly after the Rainbow Six Siege Pro League finals which take place at Gamescom.

Hughton has insisted Brighton must ignore any gulf in financial clout however, citing Burnley and Bournemouth as examples of how to carve out a Premier League niche on a budget. In the last six or seven years Manchester City didn't buy full-backs. I'm calm and I'm ready to help my team. "We will maybe change one important player".

"They are expected to win league titles, Champions Leagues". I´m going to be courageous and say the game will finish 4-0.

Antonio Conte lifted the Premier League title in May at the end of his first season as Chelsea manager, but the summer hasn't gone according to plan for the Italian. I think we´re in for plenty of goals and a decent City win.

Pep Guardiola will resist a tactical shift at Manchester City this season, having backed his raft of big-money singings to fit last season's often stuttering gameplan. I am backing him to deliver this time around, though.

Finally, ESPN columnist Simon Curtis looks beyond a busy summer of transfer activity back into the history books of Brighton v City, and finds cause to be wary.

"Last season we were [favourites] too and we finished 15 points behind [Chelsea]", Guardiola told a news conference.
