Manchester City jet off to Brighton ahead of Premier League opener

Benjamin Mendy of AS Monaco celebrates during the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 2nd Leg match at the Stage Louis

I expect the opening formation to be the 3-5-2 seen in the preseason.

"Maybe the difference is it's a physically stronger league in the Premier".

A fee of 40 million pounds proved too substantial for Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to turn down, even if manager Antonio Conte wanted to retain the midfielder he still called "very important for our team" on Wednesday.

Those deals were small change compared to City's spending of course and Chris Hughton's signings have been offset by a broken leg for Beram Kayal that will keep the midfielder sidelined for around three months.

The Hammers have a long list of injuries.

But if you compare our preparation between the two pre-seasons, you'll see the Club are very well prepared for this season.

"When you go to Germany, Spain, Italy to buy - it happens with United, Chelsea, all the big teams - it's £10-£15m more expensive".

Guardiola said: "It is not just us".

Last season's fixture was settled by spectacular Emre Can bicycle kick ♦ Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana out for Liverpool. We have to deal with that and handle that.

City will be without Mendy and Ilkay Gundogan for the match at promoted side Brighton on Saturday, but Guardiola said they were close to returning from injury.

"There is nothing negative about going there". Impressively, he only earned four bookings in over 2000 minutes of Premier League football.

Players IN: Bernardo Silva, Ederson, Kyle Walker, Danilo, Benjamin Mendy. They are open, naïve, brittle and Guardiola looks like a man determined not to learn the lessons of last season because he does not want to be proven wrong.

"The club was clever like that because we anticipated what we needed".

He said: "I played against Bayern when Pep was there and he is an amazing coach". His shooting is often derided as weak.

Brighton have broken their club transfer record twice in one week to draft in Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven and Club Brugge's Jose Izquierdo, subject to medical and international clearance.

There were, though, warning signs.

'But they are for wonderful players, so good luck to them if they can do that.

Quite what the rationale is behind Crystal Palace's decision to hire former Ajax boss De Boer is hard to divine. That is a way of getting past Aguero's lack of pressing from the front, and provides width from the new wing-backs, although it does leave no obvious role for last year's star Leroy Sane.

Chelsea will begin its title defense against Burnley on Saturday with its Brazilian-Spanish striker, Diego Costa, on the sideline as he waits for a move away to Stamford Bridge, probably to Spain or Italy.

Vincent Kompany will be the starting right center -back.

"The next year I had some offers from abroad and took the step towards Manchester City and had another great year".
