STATBOX-Soccer-Brighton and Hove Albion v Manchester City

However, the Brazilian blew hot and cold last season, and with Fernando joining Galatasaray, the Manchester City boss has a spot open in his squad. "Last season in my first news conference we were the favourites so nothing has changed. Then we have got to adapt to their style of play", says Brighton midfielder Steve Sidwell.

The City line-up for their 1-0 win was all-British but the eleven who will take the field on Saturday will be drawn from around the world - with even more worldwide talent having been recruited during the close-season. "We go to sign and other clubs are always going to ask us for more".

Guardiola seemed unprepared for the rude physicality of English football and was derided for saying he was "not a coach for the tackles" after a one-sided 4-2 defeat at Leicester City. We have to deal with that and handle that.

Guardiola will travel to Brighton with new signings Bernardo Silva, Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker and Danilo, although Benjamin Mendy is still working his way back to fitness after a thigh injury.

The report added Barcelona "expect to keep hold" of the Spaniard, and it would indeed be a huge surprise were the Catalan giants to let one of their key players leave the Camp Nou.

The City boss says that transfer fees can not continue to grow at the current case and expects them to level off at some point.

"I think he's close to coming back", he said. Sooner or later it's going to finish.

He said "we are not going to spend how we spent this season, I assure you that".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said the club is not done with its spending spree and vowed to "buy one, two, maybe three players" over the next few years. But not what happened this summer.

March believes that the high transfer fees are a reflection of the quality in the league but says Brighton are not intimidated by bigger teams or anxious by the general consensus that they will be relegated after just one season.

Chelsea have 13 or 14 very good players who will match anyone.

What doesn't help is the fact that their best player, Eden Hazard, is set to miss the start of the season due to a fractured ankle.
