Manchester City at Brighton & Hove Albion, 2017 Premier League: Players to Watch

Manchester City's Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero celebrates with teammates after scoring the opening goal of the English Premier League football match between Brighton and Hove Albion and Manchester City at the American Express Community Stadium

The 27-year-old England worldwide impressed last season as he helped Spurs reach a successive second placed finish.

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.

He added: "But we prefer to be aggressive without the ball, it's the same as last season".

Manchester City at Brighton & Hove Albion, 2017 Premier League: Players to Watch

We put all those questions, and more, to our ambassador Chris Sutton, when we met up with him for a chat ahead of the big kick-off this weekend.

"We had one of the oldest teams in the Premier League so we made a decision to put energy in the team for the next five, six years", he told reporters today. It's going to be tough for them. "The talent of Phil Foden is obvious and it's a gift that Manchester City have got on their own doorstep". There's a gulf between Albion and City.

If Phil Foden's Premier League debut arrives over the coming weeks, do not expect Manchester City's diminutive 17-year-old midfielder to be intimidated by the prospect of tangling with older men and bigger physical specimens. We are strong defensively and I predict 1-1. A win at The Amex would be a great start for the Citizens' season. We have a lot of quality here and that is going to help the team.

Good day and reasons to call 811 before digging
There is no charge for 811 to homeowners or excavators to provide utility line location services. Any project that includes digging or excavation should be preceded by an 811 call.

"We are here to win the games. That is the top (and only) priority, and the club will do all it can to achieve that".

"If we can keep (captain) Vincent Kompany fit and in the team alongside the new signings, then I think we have everything ready for a very successful 2017/18 campaign".

"It's going to be a challenge for everybody but we'll take it in our stride, compete and we'll surprise a few people", March told The Times newspaper. I hope I can prove I'm just as good as them.

Guardiola unmoved by Manchester City favourite tag
Perhaps we´ve got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way. City will begin their campaign on Saturday when they play away to newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion .

'It's going to finish.

"If you see in the first games [last season] against Sunderland and especially against Steaua Bucharest, between last season and now, it's completely the same". In my opinion, he could be one of the best players in the world one day. The Arsenal manager should have left after winning the FA Cup at the end of last season.

A superb first 11 with top scorer Harry Kane and a dynamic midfield it's hard to look past Spurs reaching the upper echelons of the league once again.

Pep Guardiola claims Premier League spending is 'unsustainable'
We tried to make it a young squad and we did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now in the last weeks. And so, by the end of year one, Guardiola had registered his first season in management without a trophy.

Where the Manchester clubs have spent upwards of 200 million pounds on their teams, Chelsea - who have a small squad as it is - have brought in just Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata, both talented players but unaccustomed to the rigours of the Premier League.
