Brighton & Hove Albion 0-2 Manchester City

Chelsea will hope to defend their Premier League crown this season

Chelsea will hope to defend their Premier League crown this season

Even though their opponents, Brighton & Hove Albion, had broken their own transfer record three times this window, the Seagulls' outlay was roughly one-tenth that of City - forcing them to mind the gap. Last season sitting here after the Sunderland game you said "you are the favourites, you are the most lovely and handsome and nice guys in the league".

In the end they were undone by their own mistakes, with Dale Stephens caught in possession in the lead-up to Aguero's goal and Dunk's own goal sealing their fate in a game City should have won more comfortably given their 75 per cent possession.

Pep Guardiola, a former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager, has yet to win a trophy since taking charge of City at the start of last season.

The points were wrapped up with 15 minutes remaining when Fernandinho's cross was turned in by Dunk, but Chris Hughton will take some positives from his team's first game in the Premier League. "We are going to improve the way we attack", Guardiola said.

And speaking after the Brighton match, the England global made it clear that he's happy in his new surroundings, taking what could be seen as a subtle dig at his former club along the way. I want to say thank you to the club.

"I'm so satisfied with what we have done, but of course we can get better. Big congratulations to all the people in Manchester City - we are a strong club". We saw this weekend what happened in many games. "We were stable but we have to try to improve".

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. From my experience in Barcelona too, especially against the newly promoted it's always hard.
