For all the time they had on the ball, it took until the half-hour mark for City to create a genuine chance.

Chelsea lost only five games last season in a 30-win campaign, winning the league title with a 30-5-3 record. The Sky Blues have heavily strengthened in the transfer market too and are fancied to win the Premier League title, let alone Saturday's meeting with Brighton.

"He has got to work with them for the last four or five weeks, getting them into the type of shape that he wants to play good football".

I was manager of Barcelona and Bayern Munich so I can handle that situation.

Brighton was successfully repelling City's potent strike force until a costly lapse.

The Gunners showed signs of improvement at the end of last season and if they can keep that form - with new forward Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon giving them fresh firepower - their frustrated fans might enjoy an upturn in results after their worst finish in 21 years.

Guardiola said: "We saw all the games in the Premier League today and yesterday, how complicated it was for everybody".

The only sour note for City was a tweet from Mendy, saying: "Bullet header" in reference to Lewis Dunk's own goal. "But that spurs us even more, everybody writing us off already, so I hope we can prove them wrong".

"We had to be patient, in the first half they were well organised, we could see they had a clear game plan", Kompany told BT Sport.

But the Catalan still noted areas for improvement as City look to deliver silverware for Guardiola in his second season.

In midfield the dominance of Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva was overwhelming and it was only in the closing stages that Guardiola gave a debut to Bernardo Silva, another man who could probably have run the game if needed.

"I fancy Manchester City to win the league, they look irresistible on the attack and playing against a Brighton side in front of an expectant home crowd, the Seagulls will have to have a go, playing into City's hands". But we'll do our best. I think we have addressed the defensive issues that we had last season and the players Guardiola has brought in are strong and fast. A pre-match film on the stadium's big screens reminded of the club's incredible journey after the coastal city had been awash with replica shirts.
