Lewis Dunk turned Fernandinho's cross through goalkeeper Mathew Ryan's grasp and into his own net soon afterwards as City prevailed after previously being frustrated. "Of course, for the next three, four years, Manchester City is going to buy one, two players (each window)".

"We did it earlier, so we were lucky because now it would be so much more expensive with what has happened in the last weeks".

Manchester City will travel to Brighton at 16:30GMT.

"If we can keep (captain) Vincent Kompany fit and in the team alongside the new signings, then I think we have everything ready for a very successful 2017/18 campaign". We were stable. We controlled the game and the game was in our hands.

"Keep doing what we've done in the last three games and it should be exciting".

"There are a lot of positives to take out of this game, building on what we did in preseason". "It's normal that the players and supporters are going to be celebrating for a period of time, but we have had to come down to reality", Brighton boss Hughton said. We will change one important player, it depends on who we are going to stay.

"We have spent, yes, but all the teams - with the exception of Tottenham - have spent", Guardiola said.

We played with the best intentions and it was not enough.

"Like every club that's promoted to the Premier League, it's to finish 17th or higher".

"We are here to win games, we won but it is just the first one", he added.

"Anyone new who comes in now, like we have seen with Alvaro Morata at Chelsea, with Conte saying he is not quite there yet about where he expects to be as a player [in terms of fitness]".

"There's a huge gulf between the Championship and the top Premier League teams and having watched City in pre-season, they look like they are in the mood for a good start".

Pep Guardiola promised Manchester City would rein in its unprecedented levels of spending after overseeing an outlay of approaching $500 million in his first year in charge. "Opening day of season, it's always good to get off to a good start so we're happy".
