Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester City - fans' View

Antonio Conte lifted the Premier League title in May at the end of his first season as Chelsea manager, but the summer hasn't gone according to plan for the Italian.

Guardiola will travel to Brighton with new signings Bernardo Silva, Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker and Danilo, although Benjamin Mendy is still working his way back to fitness after a thigh injury. "We are going to see at the end of the season what happens, knowing how hard it is". In the last six or seven years Manchester City didn't buy full-backs.

March believes that the high transfer fees are a reflection of the quality in the league but says Brighton are not intimidated by bigger teams or anxious by the general consensus that they will be relegated after just one season.

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach Guardiola claimed it was necessary to reinvigorate City's ageing squad but he will only seek to add one or two new faces in forthcoming seasons.

"I don't [think] there's extra pressure on me", he said.

The Frenchman has been a major disappointment since joining City in a £42million deal in 2014, and spent last season on loan at Valencia. "I know it's a big responsibility considering I have become one of the most expensive goalkeepers. If the club decides [I am] not able, we are going to take a solution". "But we try to win the game". "Last season in my first news conference we were the favourites so nothing has changed". I'm honest in my job. "So, I didn't think twice when I got the proposal from City".

"City are probably not going to know as much about us as we do about them".

Express Sport has had a go at predicting how each of the weekend's fixtures will play out - do you agree? "The market is what it is but sooner or later it is going to finish".
