Man City boss Guardiola happy overcoming 'enthusiastic' Brighton

14 August 2017

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: "The first game is always complicated".

Guardiola has strengthened his defence this summer, bringing in three younger full-backs in Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo, and a new goalkeeper in Ederson - as well as signing midfielder Bernardo Silva. It was always going to be hard for us to score.

So yes, we'll look at having as many good experiences as we can, and that goes for the whole season, not just the start.

"Going forward, I don't think that there is anyone who can match us because we have so many attacking options and great players".

Lookman scored on his debut against Manchester City with a cool finish that belied his tender age and Everton manager Ronald Koeman believes the Londoner can make a difference for his team this year. I want to say thank you to the club.

I'm sure Chris will know the key for any newly-promoted team is how you do at home. "So that's the target Lacazette should set". While Alexandre Lacazette has come in to lead the line, he should add the killer instinct Arsenal fans have been calling for.

Brighton was successfully repelling City's potent strike force until a costly lapse. It started with Real Madrid and [Cristiano] Ronaldo going for £80m and then [Gareth] Bale for £85m. That make a gap and made everything more expensive.

"In the next few years City will buy one, two, maybe three players". With so much talent at his disposal, City's players know they have limited time to impress.
