We're buying three more players - Guardiola

Guardiola, a former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager, has yet to win a trophy since taking charge of City at the start of last season.

Asked about extra pressure, he added: "It's the same pressure as I had last season. This group of players is going to stay for a long time at Manchester City". "We are going to see at the end of the season what happens, knowing how hard it is".

Secretary, Brighton & Hove Albion Supporters' Club "I am old enough to remember the last (and only) time we were in the old First Division, from 1979 to 1983".

"I have a feeling that we will score early and get a good win against Brighton on Saturday". "People say in my first press conference we are favourites".

"I think soon [they will be back] but not for this game".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola expects to spend less on players next season after a big splash-out in the current transfer window, saying today's squad had been put together with an eye on the future. We were not able with those players to find a solution.

Defenders Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo have all arrived at the Etihad Stadium along with goalkeeper Ederson and midfielder Bernardo Silva to take City's expenditure to £217 million ($281 million, 238 million euros).

March believes that the high transfer fees are a reflection of the quality in the league but says Brighton are not intimidated by bigger teams or anxious by the general consensus that they will be relegated after just one season. But the solution is not changing players every season. I'm honest in my job. We have to deal with that and handle that.

Express Sport has had a go at predicting how each of the weekend's fixtures will play out - do you agree? "We are going to see at the end of the season what happens, knowing how hard it is".
