Gabriel Jesus hopes competition with Sergio Aguero will benefit Man City

Guardiola defends Manchester City's big spending

Chris Hughton took the positives after Brighton's first Premier League match ended in defeat to Man City on Saturday. "It will not be easy but we travel to win the game".

"We've won a lot of games - particularly here at home, it's been a bit of a fortress for us - but if you want to play in the top division, you're up against the top teams".

After a frustrating first half, which highlighted City's failures up front from last season, change was always going to come, and the breakthrough arrived within minutes of the introduction of Leroy Sane in the 68th minute.

"After you know what happened last season?".

"So we have to disregard most of it, because it's something that we can't affect", he said on Friday.

Jose Mourinho hoping to continue second-season success record with Manchester United
In goal, David de Gea remains a steadfast presence and the Spaniard is one of the best keepers in the Premier League . Now, he's in his second season and the clouds appear to be gathering over the Stamford Bridge skyline.

"We know from working in preseason on the training pitch what our game plan is going to be in most games". "These two guys have goals in their blood, they live for that, but to score goals we have to try to create".

"It's important to start well and start winning", Ederson added.

Nasri has been frozen out of a rotation rich in creative maestros, such as David Silva, Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne. This meant City had to unexpectedly spend big for another right-back, that being Danilo, a multi-functional player also capable of playing left-back as he's proven in pre-season.

City had to show patience at the Amex Stadium, taking time to get into their groove. The defence has been bolstered with the arrival of Markus Suttner and Aleš Matějů while Mathew Ryan is an experienced goalkeeper.

Man City provided Brighton with a rude awakening to life in the top-flight but there are plenty of signs they can beat the drop in their debut season.

"That moment in the 70th minute, when we allowed ourselves to be stretched, was the only moment until then that they capitalised on".

Hughton, who will assess Chelsea loanee Izzy Brown's hamstring injury on Sunday, bemoaned his side relinquishing possession too easily, but felt there were "more positives than negatives".

20 years ago Brighton were on the brink of extinction and facing relegation from England's fourth-tier on the final day of the season.

Selling Nasri won't be easy, though, not when City are asking suitors to "meet the club's £10 million plus asking price in addition to footing his £9.6 million-per-year wages", per James Ducker of the Daily Telegraph. "I'm sure we can".

The Cityzens have spent extreme amounts of money during the current transfer window as they look to push on for the Premier League title. They could put out a second eleven that would be a more than respectable Premier League team on its own merit, once Guardiola chooses the hard task of selecting his best line up.
