Aguero scores against 30th Premier League team

Brighton & Hove Albion are only without Sam Baldock (calf) and Beram Kayal (leg) for their debut Premier League fixture.

The Citizens have spent almost in the excess of £200million so far in the summer transfer window with the young goalkeeper one of the five major signings brought in at Eastlands, with City breaking the world record fee for a goalkeeper by paying in excess of €40 million to Benfica for his services.

There was no chance of mistaking new signing Bernardo Silva with Spanish counterpart David, who sported a bold new BALD hairstyle!

Manchester City were held by newly promoted Brighton for most of the match until two late goals proved the difference. Glenn Murray needs to show age is no barrier to scoring at any level.

What Pep Guardiola has really bought himself is options, with three debutants in the starting XI and a further 206 million pounds' worth of talent on the bench.

Pep Guardiola thanked the Manchester City hierarchy for their close-season transfer dealings after watching his new-look side kick off the Premier League campaign with victory at Brighton and Hove Albion. All the money I was putting into the club prior to getting planning (for the Amex) was pretty much worthless if we didn't get it.

However, after all the high expectations, for the first time in his career Guardiola ended a whole season trophy-less, though they did managed to finish the season third.

Manchester City look really strong and they are my tip for the title.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

Arsenal have already benefitted from the linesman failing to spot Mesut Ozil's handball in the build up to Aaron Ramsey's equaliser against Leicester City last night, while Liverpool had every reason to feel aggrieved for an offside call that went against them as they dropped points vs. Watford earlier in the day. Current Seagulls striker Glenn Murray scored in that match, while Vincent Kompany started for the visitors.

"I saw last season how tough the league is - it doesn't matter who the top teams are".

The playmaker's squad role could be similar to that of Aleix Garcia last season.

Anthony Knockaert was directly involved in more league goals than any other Championship midfielder in 2016-17, with 15 goals and eight assists. "We conceded just one opening after one corner and after that, nothing happened".

Guardiola was one of the most heralded managers in the world following the exploits of his all-conquering Barcelona side, but his European struggles with Bayern Munich and the decline of his patented "tiki-taka" football have seen many critics label him a "chequebook manager".

In the end they were undone by their own mistakes, with Dale Stephens caught in possession in the lead-up to Aguero's goal and Dunk's own goal sealing their fate in a game City should have won more comfortably given their 75 percent possession.

Although one could say that there was next to learning curve for Conte then as he marched to the Premier League title with no hiccups along the way.

He has scored in his last six Premier League away games - the record in the division is Robin van Persie's total of nine in 2011.
