Arsenal without four senior players for Premier League opener against Man City

And stopping Manchester City superstar Sergio Aguero could be an ideal way to silence his critics.

Pep Guardiola believes he is close to implanting the ideal culture at Manchester City and says the key to a "magnificent" follow-up to last season's record title triumph is not to forget it but to remember precisely how that was achieved.

Welcome to your matchday media round-up as City take on an Arsenal side not managed by Arsene Wenger for the first time since March 5, 1996. Emery, even if successful in the long-term, will probably take time to assert himself at a club used to only one man for 22 years. "He has had a lot of success with teams that probably weren't the best technically or didn't have the best players, but they fought till the end and he's showing that to every single player and that's the way he wants us to be involved".

'We can do our job, yes, but maybe Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea can do their job better and win, reflects Guardiola.

Arsenal should get plenty as the season goes on - in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette they have two of the top seven favourites to be the league's top scorer - but keeping goals out is Unai Emery's priority.

The duo only returned to training on Monday after helping their national teams progress to the semi-finals in Russian Federation in July.

In his first match, Emery will come face to face with Pep Guardiola, one of the most decorated managers in the history of football, and the two will roll back the years to their days in Spain.

Several teams strengthened in the summer and managers have been up and about to ensure their squads are up to par. It's a new challenge. Benjamin Mendy is meanwhile fit again and will provide more consistency on the left.

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

"Now, when I say something to the players, they know exactly what we have to do".

Arsenal appointed Unai Emery as the new gunners boss in May and so the manager has been with the players for just three months, the director of high performance at the Emirates Stadium Darren Burgess has opened up on how the training sessions under the new manager have changed.

Favouring a 4-2-3-1 formation, Emery is likely to field new arrival Lucas Torreira at the base of his midfield with Granit Xhaka providing the necessary steel.

He has returned to training this week but it's unclear as to whether he'll start the match or be among the substitutes. The major issue is at left-back, where Sead Kolasinac is definitely out and Nacho Monreal is considered doubtful, which may mean Ainsley Maitland-Niles starting.

Kevin De Bruyne missed out on the clash against Chelsea, but he is fully expected to start against Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday.
