Uwe Rosler in action for Manchester City

Guardiola and Mourinho will have a lot to prove following the amount of money both managers have splashed in this transfer window. "He had a good fight against two good central defenders and I'm happy with his period and I'm happy with the way he fits into - I'm not exhausted to repeat - an incredible group".

"We are much better organised in the areas that support the first-team squad". In the cups we never lost, and in the Europa League, we never lost, so for the whole season, we lost one match. It is the way I trust the player is going to perform.

"We also have people coming later - Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, maybe Zlatan". "We needed to do that because four or five players were out of contract".

Manchester United succumbed to a 2-1 defeat to European Champions Real Madrid in the Uefa Supercup final at Skopje, Macedonia, and even so, manager Jose Mourinho said he was pleased with his side's performance.

His first season at United was a year of building - and now he is ready to get to the top again. He started the first game for Barcelona which meant it ruled the deal out to get him. I want, I want!

'I'm on fire, ' he smiled when asked to describe his mood. Jose Mourinho said he understands and accepts the extreme price inflation in the current transfer market and how inhibiting that is. During my time there, we also had an agreement with Toni Kroos, that he would join Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho insists Manchester United's transfer activity is sufficient
He gives me something I really like which is consistency. "I trust he is going to perform, so I think he is a fantastic signing". City travel to new-boys Brighton, back in the top tier after a 34-year absence, while United host West Ham .

"There are not many, there are just a couple".

"Overall I believe that it's down to us".

"It is hard job to play against a team that dominates the possession - and he tried", Mourinho said of his striker.

Brighton & Hove Albion are only without Sam Baldock (calf) and Beram Kayal (leg) for their debut Premier League fixture.

"He's one of those players that gives me what I like in players which is consistency". Arsenal and Manchester City love to hold possession, allow the fullbacks to attack more than defend. That is normal but not enough, ' he stresses.

"To try to develop things that we normally don't do and in this moment there are so many teams playing with three in the back and wing-backs that probably sometimes we have to play that way".

Hughton, who ex-Chelsea, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough midfielder Townsend played alongside for the Republic of Ireland, has experience of managing in the division with Newcastle and Norwich.

"Arsenal the same. Great, experienced manager, same team".
