"For example, hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season".

It wasn't easy, but Manchester City got off to a winning start in the new Premier League season thanks to a 2-0 victory away at Brighton & Hove Albion.

For the game against City, Brighton will be without Beram Kayal and Sam Baldock, who are both injured; Glenn Murray, Anthony Knockaert and Solly March all face late fitness tests.

Unlike the last season - where Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho had entered their first season with Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United respectively and were expected to adjust to their new surroundings - this time around there is expected to be little in the way of a learning curve.

Guardiola had a troubled debut campaign at Eastlands as the Spaniard failing to win a trophy for the first time in his storied managerial career.

The front 3 could comprise of Aguero in the middle flanked by Jesus and Sane on either side as we saw during the end of last season.

"We had chances in the first minutes".

"We were stable. We controlled the game and the game was in our hands". We did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now in the last weeks.

The club will need to bear in mind that City spent nearly £200 million on new signings this summer, with close to £150 million of that being spent on full-backs.

The City boss was delighted with that control and also praised his side's persistence and hard work to fight their way to the three points.

"So we have to disregard most of it, because it's something that we can't affect", he said on Friday. City have been the among the biggest spenders in the transfer market this summer, having paid in the region of £200 million pounds so far. We put our bodies in we made some important tackles and eventually we got the goal because we were patient. That is when I am proud.

"I was very happy with the new players".

City controlled the latter stages of the game, but were unable to score a 3rd goal, as Citysettled for a 2-0 win on their first game of the season. Today our box was flawless and in the opponents box we scored two goals but we created more.

"Ultimately [we have] a lot of positive things to take from this game and we kind of built on the pre-season we had".

"When you're up against the quality that they've got - they have designs on Champions League; ours is to stay in this division next season". Since then, the club has escaped extinction and survived the old Goldstone Ground being sold to developers with no home to go to before a "temporary" 12 years at the Withdean Stadium.

City's playing staff has undergone a massive overhaul over the last two summer transfer windows after Guardiola took over one of the oldest squads in Europe.
