Bernardo Silva will give us options in midfield and Ederson looks like a confident goalkeeper.

The trip to the coast will be start to what is expected to be a season of pressure for Manchester City, as they head to the AMEX Stadium with many of people expecting the Citizens to begin their title charge tonight. "The market is what it is but sooner or later it is going to finish".

City played Manchester United in Houston, Texas last month and while United won 2-0, thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford, plenty of fans were impressed by Foden.

Man City defender Kyle Walker: "We needed the win and it was good to get off to a good start, so we are happy".

"Last season in my first press conference we were the favourites so nothing has changed".

"I want to continue with what we did in the last three games of pre-season", said Guardiola. We put our bodies in, we made some important tackles and eventually we got the goal because we were patient.

The Gunners' record signing brought Emirates Stadium to its feet by steering Mohamed Elneny's cross past Kasper Schmeichel. But Shinji Okazaki immediately responded with a nifty header to tie the game back up just three minutes later.

"But when you bring players from a different league you never know how they are going to adapt, if they are going to adapt and how long it's going to take".

"We were stable, we concede just one shot after one corner and after that nothing happened".

Yet, a team featuring Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus up front and a sprinkle of attacking midfielders like Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, new signing Bernardo Silva, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling promises lots of goals this season.

"Because I don't think last season the players he had were the type of players that he wanted so you have to rebuild the team around his project and the way he wants to play - it's a tough job for him".

Coverage of Manchester City facing off against Brighton will be shown live on BT Sport 1 (Sky Channel 413, Virgin 530, BT 408). A pre-match film on the stadium's big screens reminded of the club's fantastic journey after the coastal city had been awash with replica shirts.
