Guardiola relieved as Man City survive 'complicated' Brighton test

Chilean keeper Claudio Bravo and Co are putting the finishing touches on the preparations

"But we had chances in the first minutes and after the game was quieter, it's not easy to attack 10 guys in the box. Hopefully in the future we can be more accurate in those terms".

City have had a good warm-up going into the start of the campaign despite a 2-0 defeat to Manchester United in their opening clash of their pre-season tour of America.

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed after last season and we will try to do our best".

An early goal for City could really fray the nerves, but if Brighton score first then it could get very interesting.

With Independence day falling on Tuesday, this film has good time in hand to attract audience to the cinemas. As per the early trends of the film, it is going to collect around 14 crores* on its 1st Saturday (Day 2).

Pundit predicts Manchester City will make light work of Brighton this weekend.

City manager Pep Guardiola will be under pressure from the start after strengthening his squad with five new signings in the transfer window, costing the club some $286 million. We played with the best intentions and it was not enough. "But it's not a party for us and we need to win".

"Guardiola added: "And we ran a lot".

"We did that last season too, but in the boxes we were not good". When you're up against the quality that they've got - they have designs on Champions League; ours is to stay in this division next season.

Bills acquire WR Jordan Matthews & 3rd-round pick from Eagles for Darby
Matthews, meanwhile, was Philadelphia's second round pick in 2014 and had been a cog in the Eagles' fast-paced offense. Darby is under contract for two more years, which is perhaps where the Bills get off asking for more out of the swap.

After claiming second place in the Championship last season, the Seagulls welcomed City to the Amex Stadium for the curtain raiser they had all been waiting for.

City are among the sides that have spent the most this summer, shelling out over €200m on five new players, but Guardiola made it clear such lavish activity was a one-off.

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. Kevin Reeves gave City an ultimately pointless win and both teams were relegated the next week. Brazilian Ederson is believed to be the answer to their goalkeeping troubles and Portugal's Bernardo Silva is a classy addition to the midfield.

"There are one or two players, like Kyle Walker, who's great because he's been in the Premier League for a long time and he knows the league", Distin told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.
