Guardiola: Man City to rein in spending after record outlay

Pablo Zabaleta of Manchester City in action during the Barclays Premier League match between Manchester City and Hull City at the Etihad Stadium

"We were favourites last season and missed out by 15 points so being favourites this season means nothing".

Gabriel Jesus lines-up alongside Sergio Aguero in attack while David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho makes up the eleven.

Back in England's top division for the first time in 34 years, the Seagulls spent most of the game on the back foot, content to concede possession and setting up a compact defensive unit deep in their own half. "I sat here after the Sunderland game and you said: "You are the favourites, you are the most attractive, the most handsome, and nicest guys in the League".

The Albion were containing City but the home team were oh so rigid, with Gross and Dale Stephens not daring to stray from the zone they had been told to patrol. "These two guys have goals in their blood, they live for that, but to score goals we have to try to create".

Sergio Aguero finally smashed City into the lead before they added a second when Brighton defender Lewis Dunk headed into his own net.

"We attacked too slowly we have to be a little bit quicker and a little bit more precise with more accuracy in our passes". You don't see one player on my team that doesn't run.

Merson says he believes they will not have a happy return, arguing that Pep Guardiola's Manchester City will teach them a harsh lesson.

Representing England at the Under-20 World Cup in the close-season was another sign of Lookman's emergence as a potential game-changer. We knew that Brighton are a newly-promoted side, with enthusiasm, also with their crowd.

"We gave a really good account of ourselves".

What they saidBrighton manager Chris Hughton: "For 70 minutes we played the game that we had to play". Playing through the middle seemed the order of the day, rather than using the flanks, which seemed a waste of two high-quality and willing wing-backs; Walker looked especially keen to get forward.

It worked but Albion have to be far more fluid and adventurous next week at Leicester or else Gordon Smith's record as Albion's last top flight goal scorer will drag on and on.
