Manchester City's revamped squad puts Pep Guardiola on hot-seat to deliever

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has praised manager Pep Guardiola

Chris Hughton was not too downhearted with Brighton and Hove Albion's Premier League debut, despite suffering a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday. I'm happy with what I've seen today.

Want your voice heard? He looked good in preseason and is poised for a big year.

Newly-appointed goalkeeper Matthew Ryan and Pascal Gross - who scored in their final pre-season friendly against Atletico Madrid - are among the biggest of Brighton's six summer acquisitions. If he stays healthy this season he will be very important to this defense.

North Korea Has Markets Nervous But Not Panicked
Economists polled by MarketWatch are forecasting a 0.2% monthly rise for both measures, after flat reading the prior month. United States trading volume has been low with summer setting in and Congress expected to be in recess until September 5.

With Ederson between the sticks and Kompany placed in the middle of the back three along side Otamendi and Stones, the defence looks as solid as any other strong side in the league. Guardiola has identified that, to be successful in the Premier League, teams must be prepared to get the ball forward quickly. And comments made by Fernandinho suggest that another left-back could be on the way in. I am honest in my job and I will do my best. It's going to be a very tough opening game, but we have to play them at some stage. He was an expensive buy but will meet the expectations of him.

Whilst arguably other teams have "as good" starting XI's, it is very hard to argue that any other team has as much strength in depth as City all over the pitch. He was a good buy due to his ability to play both fullback positions.

"For example, hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we spent this season".

Mariota returns; Jets top Titans 7-3 in preseason opener
Hackenberg completed 18 of 25 passes for 127 yards in the 7-3 win over the Tennessee Titans , his only turnover a botched snap. Instead of breaking down the game, let's focus on the individual players or units that stood out, for better or worse.

"The first game (of the season) is always complicated, especially with what happened this weekend".

"The work starts from the day you get promotion". He will be rotated but playing against a less offensive side like Brighton he is the flawless number 6 due to his ability to pick passes and control the midfield.

By contrast, Brighton have spent just over £26m in total, with their greatest outlay being the £12m spent to bring PSV Eindhoven midfielder Davy Pröpper to the Amex Stadium. I visited them a couple of times a year ago, to check how they are doing. The wings would be free for youngsters Sane, Sterling, B.Silva and Jesus who would be rotated in pairs by Pep so that each gets a chance to prove their mettle on the field.

Markets Right Now: Stocks drop, led by technology companies
After an hour of trading, the FTSE was down 46.18 or 0.6% to 7,451.88, with the FTSE 250 down 0.1% to just over 19,854. The market indexes wavered between small gains and losses for much of the morning, then veered lower by afternoon.

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.
