Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City - fans' View

Townsend backing promoted Brighton to survive then thrive in Premier League

He will not be intimidated by the Premier League big guns and has already broken the club's transfer record three times in the close-season in a £35 million spree on Laurent Depoitre, Aaron Mooy and Steve Mounie.

Guardiola, who for the first time in his career ended last season without a medal, has spent more than £200m on players this summer.

Before the game Guardiola spoke cryptically about not always playing Aguero and Jesus up front but on Saturday he gave Brighton the full double blast, which paid off - eventually.

Last season was by far the most difficult of Wenger's 21-year reign, with Arsenal's on-pitch travails exposing him to furious protests from angry fans.

"It shows a real intent to want to be the best they can, win the title and ultimately of course it's about the Champions League as well. I am satisfied, especially with the second half".

Townsend feels the Amex Stadium outfit have every chance of a long-term future in the Premier League should they beat the drop this time.

"In the next few years City will buy one, two, maybe three players".

Guardiola will hope goalkeeper Ederson, acquired from Benfica for £34.9 million, is less error prone than Claudio Bravo, whose dismal season was a major factor in City's failed title challenge.

"But what the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City can do, they can do that and good luck to them".

"People say in the first news conference we are favourites".

The formation allows an extra man in midfield, which has proved to City's advantage in warm-up victories over Tottenham, Real Madrid and West Ham.

City had the ball in Brighton's net after 27 minutes, but it was disallowed.

"You need to put the defeats and the poor performances behind you and look forward to that next one".

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. "But I think Guardiola will play exactly how he did last season".

Stephens lost possession on halfway and City raced through an unset defence with De Bruyne finding Silva, whose instant pass into Aguero allowed the master marksman to take a touch and finish. "I was there with my mom and my sister and I could go and touch the grass, climb over the little fences there".

"I thought of days at the Goldstone when I was young", Perrett said as he watched his beloved Seagulls walk out to make their PL debut. We have to deal with that and handle that.

"Overall I believe that it's down to us".
