Man City edge past spirited newcomers Brighton

Just five minutes later Fernandinho crossed in for Jesus but the ball cannoned off Dunk's head and through Ryan's arms for 2-0 to City.

Despite the dominate play from Manchester City, the club failed to breakdown Brighton until Sergio Aguero's 70th minute goal.

Shane Duffy had a shot deflected just wide and, after City's new £35m goalkeeper Ederson flapped at the resulting corner, Dunk had two shots blocked in quick succession.

But the moment they did it was ruthless as striker Aguero converted 20 minutes from time. It was hard but we did it. We can try to beat them, what a thrill that will be for us.

"Last season we were [favourites] too and we finished 15 points behind". We played with the best intentions and it was not enough.

Guardiola started with a back-three and they were rarely troubled as City dominated possession with 78 percent of the ball.

Man City signed Walker from Jenas' former club for around £50m earlier in the transfer window and he believes that Tottenham got a good fee, but is anxious to see Guardiola working with England's best right-back.

As sport's slickest hype machine turned at top speed last week to prepare the ground for the new Premier League season, senior Sky executives were more interested in the less glamorous end of professional football.

City have since spent over £200 million in the transfer window and offloaded many players who were deemed as surplus to requirements.

"It is all I demand of my players and when you see Sergio and Gabriel run backwards and Kevin and David, that is the first step to creating something".

Speaking on his chances in the upcoming PL, the ex Bayern Munchen boss said; "Last season at my first press conference we were favourites, so nothing has changed". We knew that Brighton are a newly-promoted side, with enthusiasm, also with their crowd. In the 34 years since we have experienced highs and very many lows.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton was proud of his side but felt they exhausted towards the end as City's class showed in the final 20 minutes.

Midfielder Solly March admitted facing City first up was a daunting task, but the 23-year-old took solace from the fact they will not have to come up against the quality of Guardiola's squad every week. "We can take a lot of positives from the game". And you know what happened?

"The market is going insane and the quicker you can get your business done and get away from the manic insane stuff, the better it is. We are playing in a division now where we are going to be severely tested and we are going to have to vary our game at times".
