Aguero on target as Man City down promoted Brighton

Aguero on target as Man City down promoted Brighton

It was always going to be hard for us to score.

"Our average is 24, so it means a lot for the future of the Club". We spent, of course, but all the teams spent - except maybe Tottenham. We were stable. We controlled the game and the game was in our hands.

Chelsea looked a settled side last season, but Conte knows that there is a bull's-eye on his back and he has repeatedly requested the Chelsea board to help him shore up his team; pleas which have fallen on deaf ears.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton: "For 70 minutes I thought we were good, there's only one way we can play against a team like City".

"So we have to disregard most of it, because it's something that we can't affect".

With the price of players on a sharp upward curve this summer, Guardiola feels the fees being paid are unsustainable over the long-term and will soon come down. I was manager of Barcelona and Bayern Munich so I can handle that situation.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we have this season".

"We had to be patient, in the first half they were well organised, we could see they had a clear game plan", Kompany told BT Sport.

With January signing Gabriel Jesus over the injury trouble that stalled a promising start in England, City look well placed to compete for all the major trophies.

"In the next three, four years Manchester City will buy one, two maybe three players but not going to buy what happened this season". In the 34 years since we have experienced highs and very many lows.

"The market is going insane and the quicker you can get your business done and get away from the manic insane stuff, the better it is". We won but it is just the first one.

"I'm enjoying my football and it's better to play with a smile on your face".

Guardiola also said he was happy to have dynamic fullbacks in Walker, Mendy and Danilo to fulfil the demands he places on his wide defenders.
