Manchester City vs. Brighton 2017 live stream

"Seagulls" have done fruitful work over the past few years, and for the exit to the Premier League club fought already in the season before last, but did not have enough luck in the playoff round of the promotion. With both sides in the relegation area and Brighton preparing for a first-ever FA Cup final against Manchester United, they had plenty on their respective plates. He is for sure expected to be involved this season.

This should also be the season for John Stones, who certainly didn't do what he was bought to do last season.

"It's not only a surname that Bernardo Silva shares with Manchester City's established playmaker, David". Guardiola is one of the best managers in the world.

"Brighton were coming to the end of a four-year stint with the big boys, their only period in the top flight". We didn't attack the next line in the proper way but that is normal in this part of the season.

This formation would also bring out the best of attacking full backs Walker and Mendy who would be deployed as wing backs with Danilo being a great option for either wing when needed.

Stephens lost possession on halfway and City raced through an unset defence with De Bruyne finding Silva, whose instant pass into Aguero allowed the master marksman to take a touch and finish. The most predictable, however, is the 3-5-2 and the 4-2-3-1/4-3-3. City went on to live another day, facing Luton Town in a last-day battle for survival. There is no doubt that anything short of the title this season will be unsatisfying, after all the heavy involvement in the transfer market.

Giles goes on to tip City to win the Premier League this season - let's hope he's spot on. "If we get on top, we have got to make it count and get the fans right behind us", he said.

"Last season we finished 15 points behind".

The major priority is going to be winning the Premier League for a start. City run very deep, and with attacking titles on the domestic and European front, he will need that depth - but so will his adversaries, and they will not have as much cover to utilise. City have the spending power and seem to be able to attract the names they want, which their rivals - even their illustrious neighbours United - look at with envy.

The squad depth is good for rotation, so their involvement in other competitions shouldn't be a problem. Nevertheless, Guardiola is highly respected, and so far, for the coach there is no pressure for the result.
