Brighton’s first ever game in the Premier League is a daunting fixture at home to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side.
Brighton were promoted from the Championship last campaign having been in the top two for the majority of the season.
Davy Propper is arguably their biggest signing of the summer, although Matt Ryan is a good replacement for David Stockdale who joined Birmingham.
Manchester City have spent close to £200million this summer as they seek a much stronger bid for the title.
Ederson, Kyle Walker, Danilo, Benjamin Mendy and Bernando Silva have all arrived and they are expected to add further players.

Anthony Knockaert and Glenn Murray stepped up their returns with minutes for the youth side, however only the latter is expected to start here.
New addition Propper is likely to make his debut on Saturday evening.
Sergio Aguero may well be left out of the starting XI here, with Gabriel Jesus likely to lead the line alone.
Guardiola has an incredible squad available to him and the likes of Yaya Toure, Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Otamendi could join Aguero on the bench.
Expected starting XI’s
Brighton (4-5-1): Ryan; Bruno, Dunk, Duffy, Suttner; Skalak, Stephens, Propper, GroB, March; Murray
Manchester City (4-5-1): Ederson; Walker, Kompany, Stones, Danilo; B. Silva, D. Silva, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Sane; Jesus
