Man City battle past spirited Brighton

Aguero

Premier League title favourites Manchester City had to wait to break down promoted Brighton before two late goals gave them victory on the south coast.

The Seagulls, back in the top flight after a 34-year absence, had showed impressive organisation and resolve to keep City at bay until David Silva played in Sergio Aguero to fire home after 70 minutes.

Lewis Dunk headed Fernandinho's cross into his own net five minutes to make sure of the points for Pep Guardiola's new-look side.
