Guardiola: There's more to come from City

Avoiding the strains and struggles endured by its title rivals, Manchester City is off to a winning start.

The south-coast side fell further behind in the 75th minute when Lewis Dunk, under pressure from Gabriel Jesus, headed Fernandinho's cross into his own net in Brighton's first game in the top-flight in 34 years.

David Silva then slotted the ball through for Sergio Aguero to apply the finish past goalkeeper Maty Ryan with 20 minutes to go.

The Spanish manager believes the signings were needed to freshen up an ageing squad ahead of the new season.

As expected, the visitors utterly dominated possession but they did not totally dominate Brighton until the goals came. His 52nd minute miss of a chance he would typically lash in suggested early-season rustiness. It was a loss to City in May 1983 that sent Brighton tumbling out of the old first division.

The Amex Stadium was rocking all evening long as Brighton fans relished their return to the top flight. It's the Premier League. People say we are a big team, but we ran like a League One or Conference team.

Facing City provided some symmetry for Brighton. Twenty-five years of the Premier League and he calls it "the most watched, the most followed all around the world". I was confident last season too.

"It's understandable that for the history of this club and our first game in the Premier League that it was going to be a big occasion".

China vows to block U.S. attack on North Korea
It appears that the much-hyped threat to possibly obliterate at least a part of Guam may be a preemptive strike. China's incentive to help implement denuclearization will be to impose comparable restraints on all of Korea.

He did, though, save his first shot comfortably, a looping header from Dunk in the 45th minute.

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

Wing-back partnership Kyle Walker and Danilo were fellow debutants costing a combined £81.5m, playing outside a trio of central defenders in Vincent Kompany, John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi.

Danilo, a right-footed left back, was less impressive but he is likely to play second fiddle to Benjamin Mendy once the Frenchman recovers from the thigh strain that kept him out on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Eliaquim Mangala being sat alongside Bravo conjured memories of another of City's many forgotten men.

"They have strong central defenders and they are so well organised, but there are many teams like this".

It helps when you have the luxury of resources to bring a trio of attacking players worth a combined $175 million off the bench, with Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling, and Bernardo Silva helping to wear down Brighton.
