Man City Begin EPL Season With 2-0 Win Over Brighton
Manchester City kicked off their English Premier League (EPL) football season with a 2-0 away victory over newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion at the American Express Community Stadium.
After a scoreless first half in which City attacked and the hosts remained resilient in defence, Sergio Aguero opened the scoring for the visitors in the 70th minute on Saturday, Efe news reported. I Can See Parallels Of Ricky Ponting In Virat Kohli Leadership: Mike Hussey
Kevin De Bruyne won the ball on the halfway line before feeding David Silva who passed to Aguero for Aguero to fire home from eight yards.
The Citizens then padded their lead when Brighton’s Lewis Dunk scored an own-goal just five minutes later. Dunk headed a Fernandinho’s cross into his own net.

“We ran like a League One or a Conference side — you don’t see any players on my team who don’t run and that is what I am most proud of,” Guardiola told his club’s official website.
“We are so satisfied for the first game, the way we played. It was quite similar level to pre-season in terms of working without the ball, and we are going to improve,” he added.
“We controlled the counter-attacks, we conceded just one chance in 90 minutes away from home and that’s not easy in the Premier League.” Ravindra Jadeja Real Test Will be to Perform in Australia and South Africa: Nari Contractor
