City's mega-spending is a one-off, insists Guardiola

Guardiola says the current squad are "young and will stay for the future".

The Israeli global could be out for the first 12 weeks of the new season.

City paid Portuguese side Benfica £34.7 million for the Brazilian, making him the second-most expensive goalkeeper in history behind Juventus' Gianluigi Buffon.

"It´s going to be tough, very tough".

Jesus' arrival from Palmeiras in January threatened to spark a title charge for City as the Brazil striker netted three times in his first two Premier League starts. Perhaps we´ve got to ensure that all our players give their all and hope that City are off-colour, but it can happen that way.

"I like to think I understand the offside rule well enough".

101 Great Goals prediction: 3-1 to the Sky Blues. Debates can get heated and that's fine, but offensive words will get you banned. Back in 1979, when we made the same step-up, we lost 4-0 at home to Arsenal.

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".

"I was confident then too". We won 10 games in a row.

"Schalke is a great club and I had my professional debut there. That is the top (and only) priority, and the club will do all it can to achieve that".

The Seagulls coasted to promotion last season and their credentials will immediately be tested against Pep Guardiola's big-spending side.

"We feel ready because we've been at a good level but we have nothing to show for it at the moment", said City captain Vincent Kompany. I´m going to be fearless and say the game will finish 4-0.

"It is not just us".

"I heard yesterday or today, Choupo-Moting also came to England".

"It's a big competition, lots of people and watching, so maybe it was an important match in my career".

Mourinho led United to victory in the League Cup and Europa League last season, the latter yielding a place in the Champions League, but their football was drab and they finished a distant sixth in the league. "Now I'm here and it's time to work hard and, hopefully, deliver".

If there are some fantasy Premier League managers here's a couple players you might introduce in your squad: Glenn Murray netted 23 times in the Championship last year, Markus Suttner is excellent left back who scored four goals and recorded five assists last season while playing for Ingolstadt, Pascal Groß created the most goalscoring chances in the German Bundesliga last season (98) while plying his trade for FC Ingolstadt 04, while Anthony Knockaert is best first-choice set piece taker and has recorded 15 goals and eight assists last year.

But the Belgium worldwide failed to convince Mourinho during their time together at Chelsea and will be playing in the Champions League proper for the first time. "I am pleased with the business City have done in the transfer window so far".
