"I don't [think] there's extra pressure on me", he said.

Typical of many opinions is a man who has been there and done it - former Leeds United star John Giles who has a well-balanced, interesting column in The Irish Independent. "I'm calm and I'm ready to help my team".

Manchester City has spent £200 million so far in the window and Guardiola admits it is not sustainable. Guardiola is one of the best managers in the world.

The Spaniard has responded by spending more than £200m on new signings, players which Merson believes leave Guardiola with no excuse but to deliver. I think that I could come back to the league some time.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola praised his side's second half performance after a 2-0 victory at Brighton this afternoon.

City open up their Premier League campaign with a trip to the south coast to face newly-promoted Brighton in their first ever top-flight fixture. "We tried to improve, to attack more fluently, a little bit quicker, a little more precise, a little more accuracy in our passes".

In the last of his previews of the new Premier League season, Crystal Palace fan Scott Colvin has given his opinion on who will win the title and which three teams will be relegated. Every game is a battle, especially with the teams who arrive in the first four, five or six games - they are so complicated, especially away. "We have to win the games that we can do".

"There will be bigger scorelines than this in some Man City games because of the quality that they have got", Brighton manager Chris Hughton said.

Brighton have broken their club transfer record twice in one week to draft in Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven and Club Brugge's Jose Izquierdo, subject to medical and global clearance. After Conte took the premier league by storm last season with his 3 at the back, a lot of English clubs have slowly switched to this system.

The Seagulls will undoubtedly become the neutrals" favourite "other side' in the coming months - possibly with Huddersfield - and Hughton says Saturday's opening clash couldn't be much harder for his team.

"We probably have to concentrate on the levels that we can affect". We spent, of course, but all the teams spent - except maybe Tottenham.

"That is why the club was clever to do that because we anticipated what we needed and we tried to do our best, not just for next season but the future". If the club decides "he's not able", we're going to take a solution.
