Man City boss Guardiola 'so grateful' for Bernardo Silva deal

Brighton have broken their club transfer record twice in one week to draft in Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven and Club Brugge's Jose Izquierdo, subject to medical and worldwide clearance.

The summer transfer window has been dominated by Manchester United and Manchester City with both clubs forking our fortunes in the quest for success, and Sutton believes that will pay off with City fancied to pip United to the title.

The striker looks to have the physicality and keen eye for goal to thrive in the Premier League, but does he have the right mentality?

"I think it is unsustainable", Guardiola said.

"There are some transfers that have gone ahead so far that are so above our levels you nearly have to disregard them".

"It shows a real intent to want to be the best they can, win the title and ultimately of course it's about the Champions League as well". Instead, many look like hugely expensive punts.

"We probably have to concentrate on the levels that we can affect".

Guardiola returns to Man City drawing board
I will do my best like I did last season. "Kyle is so energetic, Mendy is such an energetic player, and Danilo too". City lack depth at centre-back where Vincent Kompany, John Stones and Nicolás Otamendi are the only senior options.

The Catalan has looked to rectify that by spending big in the summer transfer window, almost in the excess of £200million, and City have backed that spending up in pre-season winning their last three matches.

City have spent more than B£200million on a squad revamp following last season's underwhelming campaign.

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. "Hopefully, next season I'll be here, and now we're not going to spend how we have spent this season I assure you that".

Manchester City are not just the favourites on account of how much they have spent, but also because they will put together passages of play that, with the talent they have available, will be hard to stop.

"We needed to do that this summer because it was one of the oldest teams in Europe, not just the Premier League".

City certainly haven't let up in the transfer window with numerous players going in and out of the Etihad Stadium in the summer months, with a number of familiar faces been replaced by a new roster of new faces.

Guardiola also pointed out City were not alone in the high-spending stakes during a summer which has seen the world transfer record smashed with Neymar's B£200.6million move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.

After Diego Costa fell out of Antonio Conte's plans, the champions paid Real Madrid a reported £70million to sign Alvaro Morata, while United parted with £75million to buy Romelu Lukaku from Everton. "But all the teams spent".

"Last season we were [favourites] too and we finished 15 points behind", he told a news conference.

Brighton and Hove Albion and Huddersfield Town are the fresh-faced newcomers in the Premier League this season, while Rafael Benitez's Newcastle United return after a term in the Championship.

"He said he would give us "every last penny".

Manchester United scored only 54 goals last season, letting an excellent defensive season go to waste with a sixth-place finish.

"The teams that arrive, in the first four, five, six games they are so complicated". Tottenham is a -150 favorite to win the game outright, with Newcastle paying +400 on a win and +290 on a draw.

It seems clear that Pedroia rushed back after his last stint without properly testing how the knee would hold up. He served as designated hitter that night in Tampa, going 1-for-4, but didn't return to the lineup the next day.
