Pep Guardiola claims Premier League spending is ‘unsustainable’

Brighton will assess winger Anthony Knockaert, who is close to a return after injuring ankle ligaments in July.

Pep Guardiola has spent over £200m to bring in players including defenders Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker and goalkeeper Ederson. It will be hard for them to stay up, especially the first time around.

City have spent more than £200million rebuilding their squad over the summer after an underwhelming and trophy-less 2016-17 campaign.

Pep Guardiola can not fault the work rate of his Manchester City side, but wants more precision in their play.

“So we have to disregard most of it, because it’s something that we can’t affect”.

After a day/night of voting, we’ll tabulate the ratings and reveal them with the top rated player being named our site’s Man of the Match. We tried to make it a young squad and we did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now in the last weeks.

“It’s a very disappointed changing room, which shows it means something to them and shows they know that for 70 minutes we were very much in the game”.

Mourinho, meanwhile, has won the title in his second season at every club he’s been at since he joined Porto in 2002, as though that is the sweet spot when he’s had time to work out his side’s deficiencies before the abrasiveness of his personality has worn his players down.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

Brighton was successfully repelling City’s potent strike force until a costly lapse. This was Albion’s first match in England’s top division since 1983.

Chelsea’s title success last season was thoroughly deserved and fascinating in the way it followed a tactical tweak, but it wasn’t the program that had been billed.

The only previous top-flight campaign in which Brighton began with a victory was 1980-81, when they beat Wolves 2-0 at home.

The Amex Stadium, home since 2011, is Premier League ready and rocked with noise throughout.

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

Aguero has scored against 29 of his 30 previous Premier League opponents, with Bolton the only exception.
