Guardiola admits double injury blow ahead of Brighton clash

13 August 2017

The 23-year-old's £35m transfer fee surpasses the previous world-record £32.6m paid by Juventus to Parma in 2001 to bring Gianluigi Buffon to Turin.

Guardiola, accustomed to being a favourite following spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, said: "Last season it was too".

But the former Benfica player is adamant he remains "calm and ready to help my team" despite his new price-tag.

This should also be the season for John Stones, who certainly didn't do what he was bought to do last season. It doesn't make an influence on me, maybe for others it does.

To call Newcastle a new team in the premier league is like calling Sun just another star.

Despite the defeat, the day was one to cherish as manager Hughton pointed to afterwards. "As they have been promoted to the Premier League this season and I'm sure they are going to be very motivated".

"I think he's close to coming back", he said.

The Saturday program of the long-awaited first round of the English championship will be finished with the match between Manchester City and Brighton, which for the first time in history will play in the Premier League.

There have been five major new signings in Ederson, Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker, Bernardo Silva and Danilo, and further additions have not been ruled out.

Louis Cardinals announced a Rally Cat Night promotion for their September 10 game against Pittsburgh. Whether it was stolen, lost, accidentally let go , or what is still mostly unclear.

In spite of City's lavish summer spending, which has seen the club surpass the £220m barrier, Guardiola anticipates a tough start for the new season.

"From my experience, the first game especially with a new promoted club is always hard, when you have the passion, the fans and no pressure at all but we did it".

"I want to continue with what we did in the last three games of pre-season". What's more, Manchester City won the possession battle shockingly heavily, taking 76 percent of the ball in the first half.

"There were a lot of positives from the game and the support was outstanding". His hold-up play was just as important, however, and his ability to get Brighton up the field will be crucial when they take on the Premier League giants this time around.

There are an very bad lot of supporters here who weren't able to come a good few years ago because of where this club was playing.

"We were stable", Guardiola said.

"We probably have to concentrate on the levels that we can affect".

"We have spent, of course, but all the teams have spent", he continued. Another good question that can be answered in the match against Brighton is does Aguero play the majority of matches including the matches against the top 6 or does Jesus start up top against the lesser teams and plays with Aguero against the top 6 teams giving Manchester City an added attacking threat.
