City's Gabriel Jesus had two goals ruled out - for handball and offside - and Pep Guardiola's team struggled to break a stubborn Brighton side down until Aguero fired home a pass from David Silva to open the scoring in the 70th minute. I feel the same pressure.
"I want to continue with what we did in the last three games of pre-season".
"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed after last season". I'm honest in my job.
"So we have to disregard most of it, because it's something that we can't affect", he said on Friday. What I can not control doesn't matter.
That this season's opener finds both clubs in rude good health is in sharp contrast to those gloom-laden days of strife and ill repute. But I'm used to that.
Premier League table 2017/18
The danger for Chelsea is that the harmonious atmosphere re-established by Conte after Mourinho's bitter departure is eroded. Brighton and Huddersfield were promoted alongside a Newcastle side making an instant return to the Premier League.
Guardiola cautioned his players following the shock results earlier in the weekend ahead of their Saturday tea-time kick off. And they are spending money as we speak.
Although one could say that there was next to learning curve for Conte then as he marched to the Premier League title with no hiccups along the way. I lived that last season. In the Premier League you do.
City is most pundits' favorites to win the league title, after finishing 15 points behind champion Chelsea last season.
"From my experience in Barcelona too, especially against the newly promoted it's always hard".
City had to show patience at the Amex Stadium, taking time to get into their groove.
The Citizens extended their leading minutes later after Dunk scored an own goal from a Fernandinho cross. "We can take a lot of positives from the game". Their doggedness against the Premier League's most gifted opposition suggested they are unlikely to be a soft touch for anyone.
16 minutes had passed and the Brighton defence had limited City to very few opportunities despite them having 78% possession.
ASEAN bloc 'gravely concerned' about Korean tensions
Tillerson is offering his most specific outline to date of what preconditions the US has for talks with Pyongyang . His counterparts from Seoul and Pyongyang also are in attendance and briefly spoke at a gala dinner Sunday night.
"You've got to be able to overcome those hard experiences that are going to come in this league".
"They have got everything in place", the 54-year-old said.
Brighton, on the other hand, managed to secure a return to the top flight and will compete after an absence of 25 years. Our fans really get behind us and they're going to step it up even more because they know we need them even more.
The formation allows an extra man in midfield, which has proved to City's advantage in warm-up victories over Tottenham, Real Madrid and West Ham.
"Now it's about making sure we dust ourselves down".
"We bought three and the market is so demanding for all the teams not just us".
Mourinho eyes second season glory with Manchester United
The Hammers' last win over United was a 3-2 Premier League victory in May 2016, which was also the final game at Upton Park. I see West Ham as a mid-table side looking upwards, but it is asking a lot for them to get anything at Old Trafford .
