Guardiola defends Manchester City's big spending

As the Seagulls prepare to host City on Saturday afternoon, Hughton has insisted his men must ignore any gulf in financial clout, citing Burnley and Bournemouth as examples of how to carve out a Premier League niche on a budget.

The south coast club's last home game in the top flight was a 1-0 defeat by City on May 7 1983.

The Spanish manager believes the signings were needed to freshen up an ageing squad ahead of the new season. "It depends on many other circumstances but we've tried to buy good defenders but also creative players and strikers to score more goals". It's going to be tough for them.

These three full backs will be a huge upgrade from City's full backs last season and will add a huge attacking force and the speed to track back in defense. There's a gulf between Albion and City.

If John Stones can develop more this season under Guardiola, and Kompany can avoid long term injuries, then City may have a more consistent defense for the upcoming season compared to last season. We bought three and the market is so demanding not just for Manchester City. 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. We are strong defensively and I predict 1-1. But then we won at Nottingham Forest (who were then European champions), gained some confidence, put some runs together, and finished well clear of the relegation zone. "And, in some ways, I'm glad it's not the Premier League holding that particular record". "That is the top (and only) priority, and the club will do all it can to achieve that".

March believes that the high transfer fees are a reflection of the quality in the league but says Brighton are not intimidated by bigger teams or anxious by the general consensus that they will be relegated after just one season.

"Then I became a starter at Schalke, played my first global game and also took part in the European Championships".

"I won't say "never" to [returning to] the Bundesliga".

PREMIER LEAGUE new boys Brighton officially hit the big time when they kick their season off against Manchester City.

I just think Manchester City have strengthened in all the right areas where they needed to.

"Anthony Knockaert seems to be one of Brighton's better players". 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.

"I scored a goal in that game against Venezuela and it was the first time that I celebrated with a gesture for my mother".

"I would like to see Pep Guardiola stay even if City didn't win a trophy, but the reality of football is that he would most likely be sacked if we have another season like the last one".

"He's a goalscorer and that's why I worked hard to get him here". He has to be strong but, of course, his quality is ideal for the way we want to play.

Midfielder Bernardo Silva signed form Monaco is also expected to make his debut, as is new goalkeeper Ederson.
