Brighton v Manchester City - How do the teams compare?

Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola absolutely needs to deliver trophies this season – or else

"Hopefully, next season I'll be here, and now we're not going to spend how we have spent this season I assure you that".

But we needed to do that because we were one of the oldest teams in Europe and we had to change that.

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

Defenders Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo have all arrived at the Etihad Stadium along with goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva to take City's expenditure to £217 million ($281 million, 238 million euros).

"We are mature players, professionals, and we just adapt", Kompany told City's website. We will change one important player, it depends on who we are going to stay. "He's a little bit behind on fitness probably, which is normal and we'll need him at the right time". "The market is what it is but sooner or later it is going to finish".

"The fact that we signed earlier helped us avoid signing players who are so expensive like now". Tottenham is a -150 favorite to win the game outright, with Newcastle paying +400 on a win and +290 on a draw.

He also claimed that the Conservatives will struggle to win a majority again. He has called for a new party - called the Democrats - to oppose Brexit.

With Man City spending around £202m on first team players and an astonishing £159m spent exclusively on defenders and goalkeepers, it would appear that Pep Guardiola finally has the right back line and goalie at City.

Impending club record signing Jose Izquierdo is to undergo a medical and will hope to obtain global clearance in time to join up with his new teammates for the game. Guardiola is one of the world's super coaches having delivered trophy after trophy at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, playing some of the most impressive football in the history of the game.

There were some promising signs last season - an opening salvo of 10 straight wins, a stunning Champions League victory over Barcelona - but City never found any consistent form.

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.

"I'm honest in my job. We are going to see at the end of the season what happens knowing how hard it is".

But the Catalan said: "I feel the same pressure". We have to deal with that and handle that.
