Brighton vs Manchester City Preview: Probable Lineups, Tactics, Prediction and Key Stats

Brighton vs Manchester City Preview: Probable Lineups, Tactics, Prediction and Key Stats

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has admitted that the club will not spend like they did this summer again as he looked to overhaul the squad.

Manchester City will travel to Brighton at 16:30GMT.

In spite of City's lavish summer spending, which has seen the club surpass the £220m barrier, Guardiola anticipates a tough start for the new season. He has spent millions of pounds so far and the team is filled with brilliant talents, at this point.

All three have the pace to change defence into attack quickly, something City lacked in the full-back positions last season.

We can not drag this process out any longer", Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows told Breitbart. The petition is also backed by Republican Study Committee Chairman Mark Walker (R-N.C). ( UPI ).

If he does carry his form into next season he'll surely pull a lot of strings and may be set to retain his Assist-Leader status, but this is contingent upon Jesus returning fresh and for Sergio Aguero to return to scoring ways and, of course, how often he plays.

City are generally on offer at 6/4 across bookies as their favourites to win the Premier League this season, with the next best alternative, United nearly 2 points higher in the market.

Ederson is now expected to step in as Pep Guardiola's first-choice 'keeper at City following Claudio Bravo's underwhelming debut season, for which he was widely criticised by fans and pundits alike. "Against newly promoted teams it's always complicated - they defend so deep, with 10 players - but we were able in the end to win the game. With the results this weekend, I'm happy to win away".

Jesus also saw two goals disallowed as wave after wave of City attacks broke up on Brighton's back line, until Dale Stephens's error opened up space for a merciless counter-attack and City's opening goal and Dunk's unfortunate intervention settled the match as a contest. We were stable but we have to try to improve.

He wasn't erratic, he didn't throw an interception and on most plays, he made smart checkdowns rather than forcing a pass. Alex Tanney replaced Mariota and was sacked by linebacker Julian Stanford on his first play and briefly left the game.

As for Brighton, manager Chris Hughton is confident his side can hold their own in the Premier League by targeting "middle market" signings while the big clubs flex their financial muscle.

"There's only one way a team like ourselves can play against them, and that's to keep it tight and frustrate them". Ederson can get the ball into the opposition penalty box with one long pass, something Guardiola highlighted following the preseason win against Tottenham in Nashville.

Quoted on Brighton's official site, he said: 'They've [Man City] been outstanding in pre-season, and if we're looking at a team gelling and showing the quality that they have, they have definitely shown that already. I don't see Alexis Sanchez staying at Arsenal by September, and when you look at the rest of the team, I don't see it happening.
