Brighton won't roll over for Man City, says Bruno

Guardiola: Intelligent Bernardo Silva ready to make immediate Manchester City impact Guardiola hopeful of Gundogan return next week

The south coast club's last home game in the top flight was a 1-0 defeat by City on May 7 1983.

The Manchester City boss has spent close to £200 million on new players this summer - four of which cost more than £40m.

With Diego Costa widely reported to be leaving the club, the main striker is Alvaro Morata, brought from Real Madrid, and while he is an undoubted talent, he is untested in English football.

The 36-year-old also praised City manager and compatriot Pep Guardiola, who won 21 trophies in seven years while in charge of Barcelona and Bayern Munich before arriving at Man City ahead of last season.

Blessed with a calm temperament beyond his years, Pickford has distribution skills desired in the modern game to go with his undoubted ability to stop shots and collect crosses. There's a gulf between Albion and City. The new players that come in they have to adjust to the way we want to play. We bought three and the market is so demanding not just for Manchester City.

"It's not like we're going into the unknown but it will be a tough challenge this season".

"I think sooner or later it is going to finish", he said.

I hate giving my predictions before the transfer window shuts.

It is a theory that could be put to the test with Clyne set to miss the start of the season through injury. How long they take to gel at the back in going to be the question and they'll leave themselves open with their attacking style, but they will still outscore everyone. People say in first press conference we are favourites. England may never have been able to get the best out of him (the endless 'can he play with Steven Gerrard?' debates saw to that) but as a Premier League player, he was exceptional.

Everton have been far busier and made some very interesting additions as they look to push into the top six, or even the Champions League spots. At one point he was the most expensive player of all time when Newcastle poached him from Blackburn (for less than Watford will end up paying Burnley for Andre Grey, for all of you "game's gone" fans) and although his exploits didn't get the medal recognition they truly deserved (they could have, but he turned Man United down), a return of 260 league goals in 441 games is staggering. If we do something good this season it's because we were together last season, and we know better, and I know better, and they know me better, and that's why it's easy. "But it's not a party for us and we need to win".

Their squad also lacks the quality and experience needed in the Premier League. I think we're in for plenty of goals and a decent City win. "We will maybe change one important player".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is convinced that Chelsea will sign a number of other players in the summer transfer window.

Bernardo was part of the Monaco side that knocked City out of the Champions League at the last-16 phase of last season's competition.
