Brighton vs Manchester City, Premier League

Share

Pep Guardiola accepts Manchester City's spending this summer is unsustainable but believes he has put together a squad that will need only minimal additions over the next few years.

Guardiola had a troubled debut campaign at Eastlands as the Spaniard failing to win a trophy for the first time in his storied managerial career.

City is most pundits' favorites to win the league title, after finishing 15 points behind champion Chelsea last season.

Guardiola has admitted such a lacklustre performance would have seen him sacked at his previous clubs Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Defenders Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo have all come in along with goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva.

City is much more equipped to launch a sustained title challenge, with Guardiola close to having his ideal squad.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we will not spend how we spent this season", Guardiola told reporters ahead of City's Premier League opener at Brighton on Saturday.

Following his arrival at the Etihad past year, the Spaniard spent £171.5m on new players but could only guide the club to third in the Premier League, 15 points behind champions Chelsea. It means he can freely switch formations from 3-5-2 and 4-3-3 this season, depending on injuries and opponents.

He expected Brighton to pose a threat on their return to top-flight of English football for the first time in 34 years. We are getting a bad price on this bet so I would avoid it.

Brighton have been boosted by the arrival of 25-year-old Dutch midfielder Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven on Monday for a club record £10 million (S$17 million).
