Brighton captain Bruno says they will not just make up the numbers against Manchester City

The team news is for Brighton v Manchester City, with Pep Guardiola putting a number of his big name summer transfer signings in the starting line-up.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager's arrival at the Etihad Stadium was greeted by plenty of fanfare last season but Guardiola's first season in England ended trophyless.

Let us know who you get and if you're happy with the result!

I am far more interested in who goes down.

For both Manchester City and Manchester United, last season was a disappointment.

"That is why the club was clever to do that because we anticipated what we needed and we tried to do our best, not just for next season but the future".

The skipper told BT Sport : "We had to be patient first half, they were defending really well".

"So whatever happens at the start of the season - and of course I hope we get off to a flier - we must stay calm and remember that it's where we are in the table after 38 games that matters, not the first few".

"We controlled the counter-attacks, we conceded just one chance in 90 minutes away from home and that's not easy in the Premier League". The arrival of 11 "important" players - as Guardiola refers to them - has handed the Spanish coach an embarrassment of riches up in attack and fresh energy throughout his squad, which now has an average age of 24.

In the end they were undone by their own mistakes, with Dale Stephens caught in possession in the lead-up to Aguero's goal and Dunk's own goal sealing their fate in a game City should have won more comfortably given their 75 percent possession. "We were stable but we have to try to improve".

Brighton boss Chris Hughton: "For 70 minutes I thought we were good, there's only one way we can play against a team like City". After Claudio Bravo's struggles last season a new goalkeeper was essential, while Bernardo Silva should reduce the reliance on Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva for midfield creativity.

He also believes City have assembled a squad that will remain together for years to come, with young, hungry player across every area of the pitch. Hopefully the work we did last season - when being champions was not possible - we can see it this season because the work is done.

Brighton was successfully repelling City's potent strike force until a costly lapse.
