The only sour note for City was a tweet from Mendy, saying: "Bullet header" in reference to Lewis Dunk's own goal.

City have spent more than £200million on a squad revamp following last season's underwhelming campaign. That make a gap and made everything more expensive.

With the victory, City are now provisionally in second place in the EPL standings with three points, while Brighton are in the 19th spot with none. "I'm a big fan of his, both of his football and his humility". I assure you that because last season we finished contract of five, six players, and for six years Manchester City hadn't bought full-backs. "These two guys have goals in their blood, they live for that, but to score goals we have to try to create".

"The season is going to be long, but today was an improvement on what we did last season".

It has been another strong showing of City's financial muscle but Guardiola insists the club have only paid market rates and such major rebuilding work is a one-off.

"We attacked too slowly we have to be a little bit quicker and a little bit more precise with more accuracy in our passes".

"Last season in my first press conference we were the favourites so nothing has changed".

"Here every game is a battle, and from my experience - in Barcelona too - it's hard against a newly-promoted club".

"We run a lot", he said.

"It is disappointing but that is the quality Manchester City have got and we know that", he told BBC Sport.

Guardiola said: "It is not just us".

"We needed to do that this summer because we have one of the oldest teams in Europe".

"Anyone new who comes in now, like we have seen with Alvaro Morata at Chelsea, with Conte saying he is not quite there yet about where he expects to be as a player [in terms of fitness]. Opening day of season, it's always good to get off to a good start so we're happy".
