Having spent over £200 million on new signings thus far, Manchester City are widely regarded as favourites to win the Premier League this season.

Pep Guardiola has been very busy in his second summer in charge, selling the club's deadwood and bringing in Ederson, Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Danilo.

Soccer Saturday's pundits certainly think City will run out champions, with Paul Merson and co. all putting them first in their top four predictions.

Merson said: "Going forward Manchester City are very strong and they have bought players at the back.

"Pep Guardiola has bought well, bought a lot of pace into the team at the back, including Kyle Walker.

While Matt Le Tissier added: "I just think Manchester City have strengthened in all the right areas where they needed to.

"Full-backs were what they needed to fix and they've done that pretty well and firepower-wise they look pretty awesome.

"How long they take to gel at the back in going to be the question and they'll leave themselves open with their attacking style, but they will still outscore everyone."

City travelled to newbies Brighton & Hove Albion for Saturday's late kick off knowing Chelsea and Liverpool had both dropped points earlier in the day.


It wasn't all plain sailing for the Citizens, though, and they had to wait until the 70th minute to finally break the deadlock.

David Silva played Sergio Aguero through on goal with a lovely pass to make it 1-0 before Lewis Dunk scored an own goal to double City's lead.

However, the biggest talking point from City's 2-0 win was undoubtedly Silva's new look.

The Spaniard, who was typically majestical against Brighton, has shaved his head for the new season and grown a beard (see below).

Safe to say football fans were in a state of shock at Silva's new look, with Gary Lineker nailing his reaction with a brilliant tweet. Check it out.

Lineker wrote: "Didn't think it was likely but David Silva might be even better as a baldie."

Silva dominated in midfield at Falmer Stadium and was the orchestrator as City claimed their first three points of the new season.

By winning 2-0, the Citizens moved into second and behind Huddersfield - who beat Crystal Palace 3-0 away from home - on goal difference.
