Guardiola returns to Man City drawing board

Guardiola returns to Man City drawing board”

Who netted your club's first strike? Everton have won nine of their last 10 home games in the league and a 3-1 result can be backed at a tasty 14/1 with bet365.

Saturday's visitors to the Amex will be expected to start their campaign with three points as they look to better last season's finish of third.

The City line-up for their 1-0 win was all-British but the eleven who will take the field on Saturday will be drawn from around the world - with even more global talent having been recruited during the close-season.

While the arrival of Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mandy and Danilo for the full-back role and Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson shows manager Pep Guardiola recognised the need to shore up his back-line, the Spaniard's attacking philosophy is unlikely to change.

David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne will provide the ammunition to the front two, with Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Sane offering additional firepower from the bench.

What a test it will be for the Brighton-born defender on his Premier League bow.

"There is a lot of games, it's a long season but I expect us to do well".

"We are mature players, professionals, and we just adapt", Kompany told City's website.

"We will have to be patient - and the crowd will have to be patient as well sometimes". After under-performing last season, City are genuine title contenders, with many tipping Guardolia's outfit to lift the trophy at the end of the season on the back of some impressive-looking activity in the transfer market.

MailOnline has teamed up with Carling - the official beer and cider partner of the Premier League - to give you the chance to win a pair of tickets to watch Brighton v Manchester City.

Chris Hughton has only won one of his seven opening day league matches as a manager, a 1-0 win for Brighton over Nottingham Forest in 2015 (D3 L3).

While City are intimidating opposition, Brighton will go into the game with the adrenalin of promotion still pumping through their veins. The Argentinian bagged 20 league goals in 31 appearances last season, winning Guardiola over with some stunning late form, while Dunk was named in the Championship team of the year.
