Guardiola wants more from City

13th August 2017, 10:49 by Michael Holland

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola cannot fault the work rate of his side, but wants more precision in their play.

City opened their campaign with a 2-0 win at Premier League new boys Brighton on Saturday.

The visitors were kept at bay by the Seagulls until striker Sergio Aguero made the breakthrough after 70 minutes and 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."

City travel to Girona for a friendly on Tuesday night before playing Everton on August 21.
