Chelsea will hope to defend their Premier League crown this season

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.

The only sour note for City was a tweet from Mendy, saying: "Bullet header" in reference to Lewis Dunk's own goal.

"We have to make sure that come the end of the window, we have a squad that can do well enough in this division".

Manchester City will travel to Brighton at 16:30GMT.

"I saw last season how tough the league is - it doesn't matter who the top teams are". I assure you that because last season we finished contract of five, six players, and for six years Manchester City hadn't bought full-backs. "We were stable but we have to try to improve".

Asked how he will pick his team up following the defeat, he added: "It's reasonably easy after a game like today It doesn't need a scientist to determine that we'll lose more games this season than in the last couple of years". "The only thing that might go against them is the pressure they put on themselves as a club and as a manager to actually win it".

"Here every game is a battle, and from my experience - in Barcelona too - it's hard against a newly-promoted club". This summer we had to do that because we had one of the oldest teams in Europe, not just the Premier League. It was always going to be hard for us to score.

"The group of players we will see this season is going to stay a long time here at Manchester City".

Man City captain Vincent Kompany: "We had to patient the first half, they were defending well and they had a clear game plan, but we have quality in the team".

Brighton boss Chris Hughton: "For 70 minutes I thought we were good, there's only one way we can play against a team like City. We controlled the game". If he wants us to play together we can, as we have already shown.

"There's a huge gulf between the Championship and the top Premier League teams and having watched City in pre-season, they look like they are in the mood for a good start. The one time we got stretched, they capitalised on it".
