New signings Davy Propper, Mat Ryan, Pascal Gross and Markus Suttner could feature but Beram Kayal and Sam Baldock are both ruled out.

Guardiola will travel to Brighton with new signings Bernardo Silva, Ederson Moraes, Kyle Walker and Danilo, although Benjamin Mendy is still working his way back to fitness after a thigh injury.

We tried to make it a young squad and we did it earlier and we are lucky because it would be more expensive now in the last weeks.

Anthony Knockaert. - Too late to mark.

'It's to try to put them in a better position to win the title'.

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we will not spend how we spent this season", Guardiola told reporters ahead of City's Premier League opener at Brighton on Saturday.

'So we have to disregard most of it, because it's something that we can't affect.

It's going to be a very tough opening game, but we have to play them at some stage.

Man City captain Vincent Kompany: "We had to patient the first half, they were defending well and they had a clear game plan, but we have quality in the team". If he can stay fit throughout the season he will undoubutely help the club keeping more clean sheets along with an improved John Stones (if pre season is anything to go by) and the experienced Otamendi.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola outlines his long-term vision for the club as he enters his second season.

Pep Guardiola claims there will be no immediate repeat of this summer's lavish spending at Manchester City.

The Spanish youngster's first-team fate will depend upon whether City manage to sign another forward this summer, as they are still pushing to sign Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez and Monaco's Kylian Mbappe.

Glenn Murray 6 - Tried to match the hard-running of Hemed but offered no goal threat.

Muric, 18, is also slated to join the travelling party down to the south coast as third-choice goalkeeper, replacing Angus Gunn, who provided cover last season but is now on loan at Norwich.

"Last season it was the same and look what happened".

Anthony Knockaert was directly involved in more league goals than any other Championship midfielder in 2016-17, with 15 goals and eight assists.

As with any side, City will enter the new season full of confidence and fancying their chances of claiming at least one trophy by the end of the season.

"The first game is always complicated", said Guardiola, a title-winner with Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

"In this type of game, when a team defends with ten players, deep, scoring the first goal is so impatient".

Several Premier League clubs are also rumoured to be interested in the 17-year-old former Watford winger.

He has scored in his last six Premier League away games - the record in the division is Robin van Persie's total of nine in 2011.
