City has spent about 200 million pounds ($260 million) this offseason, mostly on full backs Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Danilo, to follow on from about 170 million ($207 million) last summer.

City claimed 12 away wins last season, their highest total in a Premier League campaign.

"It is all I demand of my players and when you see Sergio and Gabriel run backwards and Kevin and David, that is the first step to creating something". "I sat here after the Sunderland game and you said: "You are the favourites, you are the most lovely, the most handsome, and nicest guys in the League".

"Talking about attacking options - we know it in training of course because we have to face [Aguero] every day".

"They should have enough to ruin Brighton's party but they need more defensive strengthening to win the league".

"For us, we're up against top-class opposition that will have more possession than we do".

"We were stable, we concede just one shot after one corner and after that nothing happened".

However, I think Manchester City will finally come good under a very good manager, as long as he is able to implement his style of play. But then there was in 2008 when we were a League One side, City were newly-crowned the "world's richest club' already with many star players - and we beat them in the League Cup at our humble Withdean Stadium home".

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton on Manchester City: "They've been outstanding in pre-season, and if we're looking at a team gelling and showing the quality that they have, they have definitely shown that already".

Speaking on his chances in the upcoming PL, the ex Bayern Munchen boss said; "Last season at my first press conference we were favourites, so nothing has changed".

City have spent more than £200million on a squad revamp following last season's underwhelming campaign. Romelu Lukaku should bring goals, which were a particular issue against lesser sides: United drew 10 home matches last season, at least eight of which it could be said to have dominated.
