Manchester City's Sergio Aguero celebrates after scoring his second goal against Borussia Monchengladbach during the Champions League Group C match between Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach at the Etihad Stadium

"It's normal that the players and supporters are going to be celebrating for a period of time, but we have had to come down to reality", Brighton boss Hughton said.

The Two-time Premier League winners have focused on bolstering their defence, with the aim of dethroning defending Champions Chelsea this season.

However, while Distin supports the signing of players with league familiarity, like Kyle Walker, he admits you never know how long it takes new arrivals to adapt to the Premier League style. We will try to improve. "I'm sure we can".

Let's just hope we can stay up. I can not control it.

Prior to the last season, the buzz was all around two of the highest-profile managers in the world arriving to do battle in Manchester and although that buzz has now gone, expectations have only been heightened as the duo splashed the cash on their team. But I am used to that.

"Everybody expected him [Guardiola] to come and work his magic but I thought that he was the manager that had the biggest job and the biggest task in front of him. The difference is the quality of the players", Guardiola explained. But for at least the next nine months it will be known as the newest destination for the Premier League. I lived that last season. "We have to win the games that we can do". We saw this weekend what happened in many games. It was always going to be hard for us to score. And we did it.

City won far more convincingly on Saturday than the score suggests, even though they had to wait until the 70th minute to open the scoring through Sergio Aguero.

And soon afterwards Dunk turned Fernandinho's cross through goalkeeper Mathew Ryan's grasp and into his own net.

For Farah, there will be no comeback on the track, as he now moves up the marathon looking to extend his gold medal haul. Perhaps this was a step too far into greatness, even for an athlete like Farah.

"We finished the contracts of five or six players and in the last six or seven years Manchester City didn't buy full-backs, so we had to buy full-backs".

After claiming second place in the Championship last season, the Seagulls welcomed City to the Amex Stadium for the curtain raiser they had all been waiting for.

"We have to learn to attack better". But probably the first moment you allow yourselves to get really stretched as a team they capitalised.

The match marked quite a journey for Albion, 20 years after facing extinction and following a 34-year absence from the top flight.

"We need more offensive opportunities". "This club has a history and a very hard history in recent years. It is understandable for the history of this club and our first game in the Premier League that it was going to be a big occasion", Hughton said.

The formation allows an extra man in midfield, which has proved to City's advantage in warm-up victories over Tottenham, Real Madrid and West Ham.

"I want to say thank you to the club, for the next four, five years we have young players with huge talent", he said.
