Brighton 0-2 Manchester City Premier League Highlights - SPORTS


The Blues went down to 10 men early on but they can’t lay the blame solely at the referee, they were awful as they start the season

Sergio Aguero and a Lewis Dunk own-goal sent Brighton to a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on their Premier League bow.
The top-flight class of Manchester City and Sergio Aguero eventually told as Brighton and Hove Albion’s Premier League bow ended in a 2-0 defeat.

Chris Hughton’s men held firm in the face of near incessant attacking from the pre-season title favourites, but a late strike from Aguero and Lewis Dunk’s own-goal sealed victory for City.
Pep Guardiola paired Gabriel Jesus and Aguero in attack, with new arrivals Kyle Walker and Danilo providing support from the flanks in a 3-5-2 system.

City dominated possession and territory, but the extra defender perhaps took something out of their attack and Mat Ryan’s stunning save from the Brazilian was City’s sole clear-cut opportunity of a goalless first half.

Jesus also saw two goals disallowed as wave after wave of City attacks broke up on Brighton’s back line, until Dale Stephens’ error opened up space for a merciless counter-attack and City’s opening goal and Dunk’s unfortunate intervention settled the match as a contest.
