Pep Guardiola demands more quality to Manchester City's play

Pep Guardiola demands more quality to Manchester City's play

Premier League title favourites Manchester City had to wait to break down promoted Brighton before two late goals gave them victory on the south coast.

Gabriel Jesus lines-up alongside Sergio Aguero in attack while David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho makes up the eleven.

Sergio Aguero was the man to open the scoring and a Lewis Dunk own goal completed City's win with 15 minutes to play.

16 - Stoke City - Having acquired the services of Maxim Chuopo Moting from Schalke and Kurt Zouma from Chelsea, Stoke looks strong and able to survive the cut.

Five minutes later, Brighton defender Dunk slammed a header into his own net as he tried to clear a cross under pressure from Jesus, with the home side lacking the firepower to mount a comeback in the closing stages.

"I want to continue with what we did in the last three games of pre-season", said Guardiola. "We're raring to go".

City are the pick of many to lift the Premier League trophy after an impressive window, but Pep was cautious about their chances.

Guardiola seemed unprepared for the rude physicality of English football and was derided for saying he was "not a coach for the tackles" after a one-sided 4-2 defeat at Leicester City. "But that spurs us even more, everybody writing us off already, so I hope we can prove them wrong". "The most important thing was to win the first game".

Afterwards the manager was predictably delighted with all the riches at his disposal and promised that City will "improve the way we attack" this season. "People say we are a big team but we run like a League One or a Conference team".

"We did that last season too, but in the boxes we were not good".

"They have to win something, if not the Premier League this year". Today our box was ideal and in the opponents box we scored two goals but we created more.

March, 23, came through the youth system at Brighton, and was named in Chris Hughton's starting XI for the clash against Pep Guardiola's Man City at the Falmer Stadium.

"There are one or two players, like Kyle Walker, who's great because he's been in the Premier League for a long time and he knows the league", Distin told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.
