Man City captain Kompany happy with victory at Brighton

  • Toure has repaired his relationship with the Spaniard after falling out at the start of last season

He said that as of now I'm going to have more options in the build-up, to play both short and long balls.

But Ederson says he has been given plenty of freedom in his role and insists he doesn't feel any extra pressure from the transfer fee City paid. I was manager of Barcelona and Bayern Munich so I can handle that situation.

Despite a wall of noise from the home fans, the Seagulls spent most of the game on the back foot, content to concede possession and setting up a compact defensive unit deep in their own half. But I am used to that.

Jesus then had a glorious chance to score nine minutes from half-time but his header and left-footed drive were not enough and the teams went into the break all square. And we did it.

"To start with three points away it's always so important".

City had to show patience at the Amex Stadium, taking time to get into their groove.

And soon afterwards Dunk turned Fernandinho's cross through goalkeeper Mathew Ryan's grasp and into his own net.

"Hopefully the work we did last season - being champions was not possible - we can see it this season, because the work is done, and the new players that come in they have to adjust to the way we want to play".

"We can not forget that when we do something better than last season it's because we've been one year together".

Having been promoted as runners-up in the Championship last season, Albion are among many pundits picks to be relegated. Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen. "That's the quality that they've got".

The match marked quite a journey for Albion, 20 years after facing extinction and following a 34-year absence from the top flight. "This club has a history and a very hard history in recent years".

The formation allows an extra man in midfield, which has proved to City's advantage in warm-up victories over Tottenham, Real Madrid and West Ham.

"It's understandable that for the history of this club and our first game in the Premier League that it was going to be a big occasion".

"Now it's about making sure we dust ourselves down".

From its quaint cobbled streets housing vegan eateries and old pubs, to its seafront delights and comfortable climate (for England, anyway) Brighton is already up there with the coolest cities to have a Premier League team and the city is regularly voted the "hippest" and "happiest" place in the UK.
