Tournament: England – Premier League – round 7.
Defending champions of the EPL in the current season have spent six matches and they have lost points only in one match (1:1 against Wolverhampton ). Man City is still cool, as well as a year ago, but now the Citizens have several strong rivals in fight for a title – Liverpool, Chelsea and MU. Manchester hasn’t demonstrated its best football in Euro cups, having lost home match to Lyon with the score 1:2. Besides the championship and the Champions League, City has played a match for the Super Cup, having won over Chelsea (2:0), and a game for Football League Cup with Oxford (win 3:0).
In the current season Guardiola’s team doesn’t differ from the team that was participating last championship, except for signing of the contract with Marez and young Sandler. Now Manchester has many injured players, and the absence of De Bruyne and Mandy is rather significant. Also Gabriel Silva who doesn’t indulge fans of club with the scored goals has considerably slowed down if to compare with the results of last season. Despite some mistakes, Man City continues to be the main rival for a champion title according to the results of the season.
Having progressed in the EPL, Chris Hughton’s team has confirmed the status of organized and ambitious team which can become an important part of elite English football. Last season Brighton was trying to get used to the level of EPL and this year the team is quite capable to get in the middle of standings. On the start of the championship Albion shows the last year’s level of the game and results, taking the 13th place. Brighton tries to play more open football than it was last season and some problems in defense are the result of this fact.
In summer the club has initiated some reorganization in the squad, having spent a large sum of money for the freshers. So, the lineup of Brighton was replenished with such football players as Button, Balogun, Bernardo, Montoya, Bissouma, Jahanbakhsh and Andone. All signed football players are good team fighters, as Brighton has never tried to get stars of the world football.
