Brighton vs Manchester City — Match Preview

Brighton vs Manchester City — Match Preview

Hopefully the work we did last season - when being champions was not possible - we can see it this season because the work is done.

Brighton knocked City out of the League Cup on penalties in 2008 following a 2-2 draw at the Withdean Stadium.

Manchester City will be looking to start their Premier League 2017/18 season on a high when they take on newcomers Brighton on Saturday.

Will Jose Mourinho win the title in his second season?

"He's learning all the time, and I don't think anybody can dispute what a brilliant manager he is", said Hughton of Guardiola. So he has not been shy about using his £300 million (RM1.67 billion) budget.

Gambling is in Bloom's blood. However, he said his habit or running offside has caught the attention of his demanding mother, Vera Lucia. Another curiosity is his lukewarm attitude to Sergio Aguero.

"I just hope that any competition between us benefits the team, that it inspires both of us to score plenty of goals for City and leads to the club winning lots of matches and trophies". We have to deal with that and handle that.

If, as Yaya Toure claims, Pep is turning City into Barcelona, Mourinho is a long way from getting United to look like Real Madrid.

When Pep Guardiola arrived at Manchester City in July 2016, the club made a fuss of the unveiling of their superstar manager by staging a "Cityzens Weekend", at which the slogan "It Begins" was projected from anything and everything bearing a club badge. Matteo Darmian with Marcello! At the Bernabeu, the big Belgian wouldn't get a job as a bouncer.

Still, the narrative was clear.

In midfield, the same trio from the end of last season: Yaya Touré, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva are able to control the game and make accurate passes regardless of distance. "The market is what it is but sooner or later it is going to finish".

"If we can keep (captain) Vincent Kompany fit and in the team alongside the new signings, then I think we have everything ready for a very successful 2017/18 campaign". Chelsea and United have strengthened their squads and both will expect to challenge for the title.

"People say in the first news conference we are favourites".

Spurs fans will also be disappointed that building a new stadium has taken priority over topping off an almost-completed team.

The Etihad club finished third last season, 15 points behind winners Chelsea.

Completing a hattrick of disaffection in the capital, Arsenal have just been Arsenal.

Brighton could be the 31st different team that Sergio Aguero has faced in the Premier League.

Everybody knows that Guardiola's game big time depends on full backs so it's no wonder that City spent almost £150m on Kyle Walker, Benjamind Mendy and Danilo, while other two signings are potent midfielder Bernardo Silva and Primeira Liga's best goalkeeper Ederson. The Gunners could miss out on the top four yet again if they lose Ozil and Alexis before the transfer window shuts. "Sead Kolasinac is also is in England now; I met him already in London", Sane said. The man cannot stop scoring and he has averaged 25 league goals in the past three seasons.
