"Hopefully she doesn't understand it better than me". The opening match against Brighton should allow us to see Pep's tactics for the rest of season.

"Because I don't think last season the players he had were the type of players that he wanted so you have to rebuild the team around his project and the way he wants to play - it's a tough job for him".

Manchester City's chairman Kahldoon Al Mubarak has said that youngsters Tosin Adarabioyo, Jadon Sancho and Phil Foden will be given chances in the first team this season.

Danilo 7 - Played at left back but looked more assured with the ball on his right foot and didn't offer the same threat as Walker on the opposite flank. They have working to stregthen their attcking line with the arrival of two strikers this summer.

Fred Eyre, former Manchester City player on BBC Radio Manchester captured the moment in these words: "Dale Stephens has been punished for an elementary error in the field". Tom Ince and Christopher Schindler will be other key players for the side.

City may be giving Mangala another chance to prove himself, but Nasri is set for the exit, according to Jackson: "Samir Nasri, Wilfried Bony and Jason Denayer are all set to leave as they are not involved with the main group".

The appearance of the Brighton football club in the Premier League of England is by no means an accident.

Samsung Galaxy Note8 press renders leaked again
Additionally, benchmarks reveal that the smartphone will come with 1.39GHz deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 chipset and 3GB of RAM. Honestly, we couldn't have thought of a better time or place for the official event that launches the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 .

Those deals were small change compared to City's spending of course and Chris Hughton's signings have been offset by a broken leg for Beram Kayal that will keep the midfielder sidelined for around three months. This year he had taken them one step further.

But how quickly they can gel into an effective Premier League unit will be one of the biggest tests facing Hughton's side.

Pep also admitted that the club had not recruited quality full-backs in some years and that was their priority for the window.

Markus Suttner 6 - Was overrun at times but never stopped working and helped to stop the quality of City's balls into the box. Although City struggled with defending last season, things are likely to be different this time, and that's why Brighton's attack will have to be top-notch.

"We know from working in preseason on the training pitch what our game plan is going to be in most games". They simply need to be at their best.

To call Newcastle a new team in the premier league is like calling Sun just another star.

On a sun-soaked day down by the English Channel, most of the 30,000 fans in the stadium thought back to the last time Brighton were promoted to the top-flight of English soccer in 1979 where they remained for just four years. The Magpies were top of the table for most of the season and were always the top pick for promotion.
