Sergio Aguero And Gabriel Jesus Start - Manchester City Team vs Brighton Confirmed

Toure has repaired his relationship with the Spaniard after falling out at the start of last season

All three have the pace to change defence into attack quickly, something City lacked in the full-back positions last season.

The boss praised City's new boys, with Kyle Walker, Ederson and Danilo starting their first Premier League games for City and Bernardo Silva coming off the bench late on.

It will interesting to see how young new signings Davy Propper, Markus Suttner, Izzy Brown, Pascal Gross, and Mathew Ryan stir the Seagulls.

"So it's a bit of a gamble but he has definitely brought quality to the club". There is no doubt that Brighton are one of the more attractive sides to watch but they'll have to certainly up their game to survive in Premier League. That was actually their only loss of the summer, which does show they are in good form.

Guardiola will be expected to replicate what happened last season during his first 10 games, only that this time he is expected to end the season with some silverware.

Referee: Michael Oliver 9 - Brilliant spot to rule out a Jesus goal for handball and got most of his other decisions correct.

Key players: Anthony Knockaert was named Championship Player of the Season past year.

Ederson added that the opportunity to work under Guardiola played a significant role in persuading him to sign for Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Ilkay Gundogan will also miss today's clash.

"For us there are some great examples of teams that have gone up and stayed up". Their pre-season exploits have been quite impressive as well, thus leading to increased expectations.

The Citizens will be looking to carry the momentum forward in the Premier League as well. Join the Playing for 90 team!

"It's very hard against a top class side like Man City with the players they have got and the quality they have got".

City also went down that season, but while Brighton may struggle again on this evidence, City look in the mood to live up to the bookmakers' billing. Chris Hughton's side had the league title in their own hands but one point from their last three matches saw Newcastle snatch that honour from them on the final day.

Albion frustrated the title hopefuls for 70 minutes at the Amex until Sergio Aguero opened the scoring following a mistake by Dale Stephens. Even so, City may have to lower their demands if they want to move the Frenchman on.

His biggest problem may be keeping everyone happy as he tweaks his teamsheet. Vincent Kompany remains a class act in the centre, whilst you have to imagine John Stones will have a much better season than his first at the Etihad.

Newly-promoted teams are known to throw in surprise results on opening days but Guardiola's side look fearsome and lethal, thus drowning out Brighton's hopes of a fiery start. What's more, Manchester City won the possession battle shockingly heavily, taking 76 percent of the ball in the first half.
