WATCH: BRIGHTON 0-2 MAN CITY
BRIGHTON 0-2 MAN CITY
All over at the Amex and Brighton's first Premier League game has ended in defeat. Sergio Aguero and Lewis Dunk's own goal did the damage.
An impressive performance from City, who dominated possession and created enough good chances to score a few more.
90: THREE minutes of added time...
87: Time is ticking away at the Amex and it looks like City are cruising to an opening weekend Premier League win. Brighton have played well today but it's not been enough.
83: SUB! Goalscorer Sergio Aguero gets a round of applause from the City fans as he is taken off, replaced by Premier League debutant Bernardo Silva.
82: YELLOW! Sterling goes into the book for a clumsy challenge on half way.
81: Dunk releases Knockaert with a brilliant long pass but the Brighton winger flops in the penalty area looking for a spot-kick and Michael Oliver is not buying it.
80: It is fired in low towards the near post but Fernandinho hooks it away for a corner, which Ederson then gathers when it's tossed into the middle.
79: Instant impact from Knockaert as he's bundled over in the corner by Sane. Here's an opportunity for Brighton...
78: SUB! Raheem Sterling replaces Jesus.
77: SUB! Final change for Brighton as Knockaert replaces March.
GOAL! BRIGHTON 0-2 MAN CITY (Dunk own goal, 75)
And there's the second goal.
Fernandinho delivers a fantastic cross from the right and Dunk inexplicably bullets a header into his own net. You're going to want to watch this one.
Ryan in goal could probably have saved the effort but it was a bizarre finish from Dunk, who was attempting to challenge Jesus in the middle.
BRIGHTON 0-1 MAN CITY
75: CHANCE! They take the corner short and it's chipped in towards Silva at the back post, who cuts back but neither Fernandinho nor Stones can convert.
BRIGHTON 0-1 MAN CITY
74: City are pushing for a second to kill the game now. De Bruyne and Walker have been combining well down the right and the England full-back wins a free-kick from Murphy.
De Bruyne's delivery takes a deflection and is up and out for a corner.
GOAL! BRIGHTON 0-1 MAN CITY (Aguero, 70)
You can't give him a second chance! Aguero punishes Brighton this time, lifting his finish over Ryan.
It all came from a mistake by Stephens, who gave the ball away inside his own half. De Bruyne pounced, fed Silva, who in turn slipped a pass through to Aguero.
BRIGHTON 0-0 MAN CITY
68: SUB! Here comes the first change for City as Danilo is replaced by Leroy Sane.
67: NO PENALTY! De Bruyne cuts inside and smashes a left-foot strike from 25 yards. It hits Dunk on the arm but it's by his side and referee Michael Oliver gives only a corner.
65: It looks like we are about to see Leroy Sane...
63: It could be a long 30 minutes to the final whistle for Brighton. City are camped in their half but so far the hosts are holding firm. It can't be long before we see substitutions from the visitors.
Sergio Aguero is 4/1 from 3/1 to score the first goal in Sky Bet's in-play price boosts, while a 2-0 win for City is 5/1 from 9/2. City to win and Aguero to score is 2/1. Both teams to score is 9/2 and not to 1/8. Click here for all the latest match odds!
60: SUB! Brighton's second change of the game as Tomer Hemed is replaced by Glenn Murray.
56: CLOSE! Brighton nearly score! They keep the corner alive and the ball breaks to Duffy in the box, he takes a touch and fires towards the corner. It takes a slight deflection and flies inches wide. So close.
More City chaos from the next corner! Ederson drops the cross and Brighton have three chances, with Propper smashing the last one wide. Poor from Ederson.
55: Better from Brighton as Murphy leads a counter. A deep cross eventually comes in towards Propper but Danilo defends well to concede the corner. That's woken the Amex up.
53: CHANCE! A nightmare backpass by Duffy gifts a golden opportunity to Aguero but the striker takes too long, allowing Dunk to recover and in the end Aguero slices his finish well wide. Very unlike him.
52: NO GOAL! City have the ball in the net again - but again it won't count. Fernandinho chips a ball in behind to Silva and he is fractionally offside - very close - before teeing up Jesus to slot home. A good decision by the assistant.
51: City enjoy more extended possession deep inside Brighton's half before Fernandinho gets frustrated and drags a low shot that is easy for Ryan to collect.
48: Pep Guardiola has one impressive bench. Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane are all warming up early in this second half. It would not be a surprise to see Sane or Sterling, City could do with more pace.
46: We are back under way...
Both teams to score is a 100/30 chance with Sky Bet and not to 1/5. A 0-0 draw can be backed at 5/1 with a 1-0 City win now 3/1, 2-0 7/2, 2-1 14/1 and 3-0 8/1. Brighton to win 1-0 is 22/1 and 2-0 150/1. Click here for all the latest match odds!
Goalless at the break and Brighton will take that. The best chances have gone to City, with Jesus seeing a goal ruled out for handball.
45: THREE minutes of added time...
44: March does well and wins a free-kick after Silva lunges in down Brighton's right. This is an opportunity for Brighton to put in a quality ball.
45: Gross puts it into the middle and Dunk rises highest but his looping header is easy for Ederson.
42: CHANCE! Murphy nearly gets away from Walker and in on goal but Ederson is alert to the danger, sweeping up. That's just about the only thing the new City goalkeeper has had to do so far today.
39: It's all a little too intricate for City at the moment as they seek to play their way through Brighton's defence. The hosts have given up a couple of good chances so far but in general they have looked fairly solid in the face of City's possession.
34: SAVE! What a stop by Ryan! Aguero digs out a cross and Jesus is unmarked six yards out. The City forward plants a header towards goal but Ryan beats it clear and Jesus strikes the outside of the post on the follow-up.
He should have scored but a great save by the new Brighton man.
31: Stephens nibbles at Silva again and it's another free-kick for City in a promising position. De Bruyne takes and it hits the wall, striking Bruno right in the face.
30: Jesus is back on and looks fine to continue.
29: YELLOW! Jesus is still receiving treatment off the pitch but he's been booked for that handball, which seems harsh. It was the right decision to disallow the goal but a booking seems excessive.
27: NO GOAL! Jesus bundles the ball past Ryan but Michael Oliver says the City forward used his hand. It's a great through ball by De Bruyne to find Jesus but the ball comes off his chest then off his hand and into the net.
Jesus takes a big whack to his throat from the goalkeeper for his trouble and he's down now, receiving treatment.
24: Silva whips in a lovely cross but Stephens gets a crucial touch to concede a corner. City then make a bit of a mess of the delivery and Brighton break clear through March.
Sky Bet have in-play PRICE BOOSTS on offer including City to win and both teams to score which is 11/4 from 5/2, Sergio Aguero to score the first goal which is the same price and both teams to score in the first half which is 9/1 from 8s. Click here for all the latest match odds!
23: SUB! Brown hobbles off, he could be out for a number of weeks if it is a hamstring injury. Jamie Murphy is on to replace him.
22: This looks like bad news for Brighton as Brown has pulled up off the ball. He's receiving treatment now, it looks like a hamstring problem. His game could be over.
21: A bad mistake by new signing Propper almost lets City in but De Bruyne overhits his pass for Jesus and it's a goal kick. Propper has looked a little nervy in central midfield for Brighton.
19: Some respite for Brighton now as Stones bundles into Hemed on the half-way line and the hosts have a free-kick, with the chance to move up the field.
City have dominated 77 per cent possession so far.
17: SAVE! It's a decent effort with a fair amount of dip but it's straight at Ryan and the Brighton debutant takes it comfortably.
16: Silva, sporting a bold new look (pictures to follow) wriggles through a challenge and is upended by Stephens in a dangerous position on the edge of the Brighton area. De Bruyne is lining it up...
15: Pep is very animated on the edge of his technical area, he seems to be trying to pass a message to Kompany to get forward and join the attack.
The game has just slowed down after the two early chances for the visitors.
12: Walker is practically playing as a right winger at the moment, hugging the touchline. He has been very sharp in the early running.
Brighton are giving the ball away far too easily on those occasions they get possession.
9: It's all City now after that bright start for Brighton. Pep Guardiola's side are keeping the ball inside their opponents' half, making Brighton chase.
That's until Danilo cuts inside and fires a wild strike from 25 yards miles wide of Ryan's goal.
