Smooth Man City blow away Brighton

Kick Guardiola commended Brighton for playing like a "main four" side in spite of being on the finish of a 4-1 whipping from his Manchester City side on Saturday.

The English heroes had the focuses fixed by half-time as Ilkay Gundogan took advantage of an unfilled net on 13 minutes before Phil Foden polished off two fine group moves.

Alexis Mac Allister's punishment pulled an objective back for Brighton, before Riyad Mahrez put the seal on a smooth City show.

Brighton stay in fourth after an amazing beginning to the season and Guardiola accepts the Seagulls have the right to be in that magnified situation in the table.

"It's great since I realized which group we face today," said Guardiola after City climbed to second in the table, two focuses behind pioneers Chelsea.

"They are forceful and when they have the ball they know what they need to do. They have every one of the instruments of a major group.

"They have fortitude. I respect them for that. They play like a main four or five group.

Guardiola rolled out only two improvements to the side that crushed Club Brugge 5-1 in the Champions League in midweek as Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus supplanted Kevin De Bruyne and Mahrez.

Furthermore, Brighton were on a similar finish of a comparable stowing away.

Joao Cancelo constrained a savvy save from Robert Sanchez and Lewis Dunk cleaned a work off of Jesus off the line almost immediately.

Yet, Brighton didn't assist themselves with some terrible shielding for the initial objective as Sanchez failed under negligible tension from Jesus.

The Brazilian snared the ball back across objective and Gundogan transformed into an unguarded net.

Bernardo Silva's glimmering structure has made the Portugal midfielder practically undroppable in spite of the abundance of midfield ability on proposition to Guardiola.

Silva was the agitator for the second objective as his safeguard parting pass played Jack Grealish in behind and he unselfishly squared for his England colleague Foden to constrain the ball in.

There was a lot of fortune about Foden's second as he hindered Jesus' shot and got a sufficient avoidance to swindle Sanchez, who let the ball through his grip.

Brighton made an obviously better challenge of the second-half as City moderated their energy in the midst of a run of seven games in 22 days.

"It was a decent example," added Guardiola. "For 30 minutes they were superior to us.

Graham Potter's men got their compensation with a comfort a short ways from time when Ederson cleared out Enock Mwepu as he hurried from his objective and Mac Allister opened home from the punishment spot.

"We experienced somewhat in the principal half yet the second half reaction was fabulous," said Potter.
