Brighton boss Hughton positive despite Manchester City defeat

"I want to continue with what we did in the last three games of pre-season", said Guardiola. "I sat here after the Sunderland game and you said: "You are the favourites, you are the most lovely, the most handsome, and nicest guys in the League".

The sight of Claudio Bravo on the City bench was a reminder of last season's goalkeeping calamities. After that, Chelsea killed us. Whether we are favourites or not is your job to say, not ours. What I can not control doesn't matter. But I am used to that. Its been another off season of comings and goings as Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola attempts to deepen his imprint at the Etihad Stadium by spending around $300 million.

After a frustrating first half, which highlighted City's failures up front from last season, change was always going to come, and the breakthrough arrived within minutes of the introduction of Leroy Sane in the 68th minute. Last season we were a humble team and an honest team.

"We are so satisfied for the first game, the way we played". We'll try this season.

The company's shares were assimilated at $3.12 per share worth to an investment of some $15,600 on account of Newport Roger K. As of quarter end Parametric Portfolio Associates LLC had disposed of a total of 28,959 shares trimming its stake by 12.4%.


The lead was doubled in the 74th minute when Brighton's Lewis Dunk headed the ball into his own net, 0-2.

That was a relief after the uncertain starts made by title rivals Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea, and his new three-man defence was seldom in difficulty.

Before the game Guardiola spoke cryptically about not always playing Aguero and Jesus up front but on Saturday he gave Brighton the full double blast, which paid off - eventually.

"We had one of the oldest teams in the Premier League so we chose to put energy in the team for the next five, six years", he said. Here every game is a battle.

Five key moments that changed the 2016/17 EPL season
Addressing the media in a press conference on Friday, Mourinho said, "Twenty-five per cent means one of four". Crystal Palace is +50000 to win its first EPL championship after finishing 14th last season.


"It's hard but we did it". "We conceded just one opening after one corner and after that, nothing happened". "We have huge players with lots of talent".

Guardiola added: "So being favourites this season means nothing". A pre-match film on the stadium's big screens reminded of the club's incredible journey after the coastal city had been awash with replica shirts.

"There's only one way a team like ourselves can play against them, and that's to keep it tight and frustrate them".

The scorer was all too familiar, with Sergio Aguero capitalising on a delightful pass from David Silva. And that is the first step to creating something. "It's the same pressure as I had last season. Today in the boxes we were flawless". Three at the back cleared the cupboards of central defenders, and the Frenchman is current first reserve in the absence of any further summer additions.
