'We have to attack better,' says Guardiola


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says he wants more precision from his side despite overcoming Premier League newcomers Brighton 2-0 on Saturday.

The Blues eventually overcame a stubborn Brighton defence in the 70th minute as Sergio Aguero found the net before Lewis Dunk's own goal doubled the advantage.

"We have to learn to attack better," Guardiola said.

"The big teams have to handle all situations. I am satisfied, especially with the second half. We are here to win games. We won but it is just the first one.

"We run a lot. You don't see one player on my team not running. That is what I'm proud of the most.

"Last season we ran a lot but in the boxes we were not good.

"In the boxes we were perfect [at Brighton]. We scored two goals, but we created more.

"Hopefully in the future we can be more accurate."

Despite the opening day defeat, Seagulls' boss Chris Hughton insists he was happy with his side's display.

"This is our first Premier League game and we were playing against the team some think might win the league," he said.

"There will be bigger scorelines than this in some Man City games, because of the quality that they've got.

"It's a very disappointed changing room, which shows it means something to them and shows they know that for 70 minutes we were very much in the game.

"We gave a really good account of ourselves."
