Rich pickings for Guardiola as City start to cash in

Guardiola has spent over £200 million ($258 million) on new signings as the Spaniard aims to make amends for City's trophyless flop in his first season in charge.

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Solly March reveals his delight after making his Premier League debut against Manchester City.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says his squad will not need huge changes in the future accepting this summer spending will not be sustainable.

"City were not at their slickest but still possessed more than enough finesse to dominate, cruise through the game and pick up three points thanks to two late goals".

Express Sport has had a go at predicting how each of the weekend's fixtures will play out - do you agree?

"I'm so satisfied with what we have done, but of course we can get better".

"We finished the contracts of five or six players and in the last six or seven years Manchester City didn't buy full-backs, so we had to buy full-backs".

The south-coast side fell further behind in the 75th minute when Lewis Dunk, under pressure from Gabriel Jesus, headed Fernandinho's cross into his own net in Brighton's first game in the top-flight in 34 years. But then there was in 2008 when we were a League One side, City were newly-crowned the "world's richest club' already with many star players - and we beat them in the League Cup at our humble Withdean Stadium home".

"All of them are going to play". It was always going to be hard for us to score. I like players when they have the ball, they don't lose the ball.

"But my feeling is that we have a lot more tools we can use". We will try to improve. But probably the first moment you allow yourselves to get really stretched as a team they capitalised.

"Here it is just as easy for us to switch from a back three to a back four and so on". Kevin Reeves gave City an ultimately pointless win and both teams were relegated the next week.
