Arsenal 0-2 Manchester City: Pep eases past Emery

Man City

Man City

The new Arsenal manager has revealed that he's had to deploy Danny Welbeck on the left side of his defence in training because of injuries to Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal.

The Gunners have bolstered their significantly in the off-season with the arrival Matteo Guendouzi, Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira.

Midfielders Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are back in contention for Manchester City's Premier League opener at Arsenal. Mesut Ozil and David Silva will be the two playmakers on the pitch and both know if they can get the balls quickly to the forward areas, it opens up opportunities for the strikers.

Pep Guardiola snapped up Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City in the summer and he will start out wide.

In steps Unai Emery, the Spanish manager who recently led French giants Paris Saint-Germain, attempting to fill some pretty big shoes at the Emirates.

"Because of what we did last season now we are going to win?"

It took 206 matches and 143 goals, but Sergio Aguero was finally included in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year for the very first time courtesy of his performances in 2017-18. Kyle Walker will play at right-back while Benjamin Mendy could return after missing last season with a knee injury at left-back.

Manchester City are unbeaten in their last none opening Premier League fixtures.

Victory ensured that Guardiola continues to have the Indian sign over his opposite number, with Sunday's win his seventh in 11 matches against his fellow Spaniard Emery.

Despite their bright start, Arsenal fell behind - Cech failed to cover himself in glory as Sterling opened the scoring a long-range strike that appeared to flash past the unsighted Gunners captain and put City ahead. "I'm not rigid to stick to one formation or way of playing". His clinical nayure and proper positioning will make him a threat for City, and he indeed is the one player to watch out for when the two sides meet.

Cech is expected to be handed the armband tomorrow when Manchester City visit the Emirates for the first Arsenal game in 22 years not managed by Arsene Wenger.
